I travel alone in the summer with (my) grandchildren, and we would have missed many wonderful areas in our state if not for your wonderful programs. I have lived here all my life, and in each new show I learn about some place I have not visited. Thank you for the memories they (my grandchildren) will always have of our journeys.

(Grey County Waterfalls & Wonders) was a very good show. We are definitely going to visit. I knew the Georgian Bay area was very nice but had no idea of the number of waterfalls and great hiking trails. Cobble Beach looks like a great place to relax. Thanks for the trip.

I watched the kayak program and found it extremely interesting. Your program reminds me of the traditional Michigan Out-of-Doors TV program from the 1960s which I watched when I was growing up. Please produce more. Thank you from an Old Time Michigan Guy.

You did a great job! We have a cottage in Hale and any time we go there we almost always make a trip to Tawas. It's one of our favorite places. We love to stroll out on the pier, shop in the downtown area and have pizza at G's pizza! I am 56 years old and my family has had the cabin in Hale since the 1940's so I have been going to Tawas for many, many years!
Sat 6/29/2013 4:36 PM
Rodney Firman - Republic, MI

The show was fantastic and I'll feel inspired to get out of my comfort zone and kayak for the first time. Great seeing the Tawas Bay area again. It's been 10 years since I've been on her shores and it's time I came back.
