Wow! The West Branch/Rifle River show was stunning! I was a long time fisherman and outdoorsman, but now a short time disabled man. I loved the accessible campground with boat/canoe delivery you mentioned. Including all the wonderful fishing with so many fishing holes to conquer. I’ve started planning on an early spring endeavor to this park. Thank you all so much for making this outstanding show! I’ll be dreaming all winter of this trip! Thanks! It was such a great show!

Absolutely breath-taking! I can’t wait to take the family camping, especially in one of the cabins on the river. Thank you for the beautiful pictures and information.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover what West Branch had to offer. I have been to Tawas, Au Sable and Oscoda many times, but only once to West Branch. Now I can plan a winter vacation.

David Balch - Brownstown, MI

Great episode of the Oscoda Region! I loved the overlooks of the Au Sable River and the quaint accommodations. Also, I enjoyed the look of small town Harrisville. I have canoed the Au Sable from the Mio area, but loved the look of the Lake Huron area. Michigan has so much to over.

It (Romantic Getaway in Oscoda) was a great show with plenty of useful information about the area for visitors.

Connie Ostrander - AuGres, MI

I really enjoyed this week's show, especially the part on the Harrisville State Park. In Oscoda you helped us realize there are restaurants there that we had never tried. Thank you very much.

I thought (Romantic Getaway in Oscoda) was great! I can't wait to visit all of the places that were shown on the show.

We really enjoy watching the show. I have done a lot of exploring and you keep finding things I have yet to do. Thank you.

Mike Craft - Elmira, MI

We watched the last half of the show (Romantic Getaway in Oscoda) and decided we want to travel in that area next summer. I spent a lot of time in Oscoda many years ago, but I'm sure there have been many changes since. It looks as if it is time to visit again. Thank you for reminding me of the beauty of the lake, the shore, the sand and the people.

Jeff Drake - Charlevoix, MI

We have enjoyed your show for nearly 10 years. The photography is great and your narratives are very descriptive as well. Even the intro theme is welcoming. Come to the Charlevoix area some time.

We were there (Manistique) last summer, and it brought back so many great memories. Your show has also shown us some places we didn't visit and now plan on a return trip next summer.

Rick Boes - Muskegon, MI

It was very interesting to see parts of the U.P. and the northern Lake Michigan shoreline that we didn't even know existed. We'll definitely plan a camping trip in this area next summer!
Tue 11/26/2013 10:16 PM
Stephen Wieszczecinski - Bay City, MI

The Rifle River Recreation Area looks nice during the autumn, and so does the color of the leaves. It’s peaceful, a lot of different sites and things to see while going down the Rifle River.

Glenn Goulding - Webberville, MI

It (Upper Peninsula Winter) was a great show. I have lived here my whole life and never had heard of this beautiful place. My fiancé just moved here from California and is amazed at all the terrific places your show has taken her. I cannot wait to take her to Manistique. Thank you for a great show.

Sue Detloff - St. Johns, MI

I really enjoyed today’s show and I look forward to many more.

Paul Serkel - Commerece township , MI

I liked it a lot (Upper Peninsula Winter). I really enjoy the outdoors, but most of all I enjoy the snow. I’m very excited about the snowmobile trails, also about the lodging you where talking about along the trails.
Sat 11/30/2013 10:07 PM
Robert Isenberg - Caro, MI

The snow shoe walking was what really got my attention (in Upper Peninsula Winter). The scenery was of course beautiful. I enjoyed all the different places visited.

It was amazing to see all that can be done in the U.P. during the winter. I had no idea. Thank you!
Tue 12/3/2013 8:36 PM
Brian Bell - Whitmore Lake, MI

The U.P. Show, (Manistique) was very interesting. My wife and I did the U.P. trip in October for the color (and a few fudges). Now that we're both retired and that she's never driven a sled before, I think your segment got me interested in taking a winter trip.
Several years ago your Oscoda show led us to get a group of 18 to stay in Tawas and cross-country, ski and snow shoe the area. I think you mentioned the Brew Pub in Oscoda which we all went to. Great idea's you have! I've motorcycled through the Keweenaw Peninsula several times and always enjoy any information on that area. Continue to entertain us! Thanks!
Tue 12/3/2013 10:11 PM
Dave Petts - Kalamazoo, MI

It was very interesting in finally seeing an area that our family has spent a lot of time camping and exploring over the years in the winter time. We have always just been there in spring, summer and fall. Thanks for presenting this!

Jason Buero - Grand Junction, MI

I loved the winter wonderland of the U.P. I always enjoy your shows and look forward to visiting many of the locations.
Thanks, Jason

Mary Baker - Charlotte, MI

Loved it (Upper Peninsula Winter)! I've been to all those places, Jack Pine Restaurant, Shingleton, Gulliver Lake, but never on a snowmobile. It all seemed outside my back door at the cabin. We know Jerry Reist and Mike Youngblood in person.
Thu 12/5/2013 8:29 PM
Monica Woods - Saginaw, MI

I love to learn about all there is to do in the U.P.! Thank you for what you do!

Roger Grates - Frankenmuth, MI

The pictures (in U.P. Winter Getaway in Time) were fantastic. I spent some time in the Pictured Rocks area during the 60's. I never saw the frozen waterfalls in winter. Truly awesome!
Tue 12/10/2013 7:40 PM
Patricia Martinbianco-Stapish - Burton, MI

I love to see the Upper Peninsula in its winter glory! Great Getaways produces great U.P. scenes that makes it fun and exciting, not to mention beautiful!

Loved it (U.P. Winter Getaway in Time)! Very seasonal! Really loved the snow train and hope to take the eight hour journey sometime this winter! Thank you for your wonderful program! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Nothing is more breathtaking than upper Michigan in winter. Interesting history information too, I will not miss another episode.
Tue 12/10/2013 8:10 PM
Rick Franz - Central Lake, MI

I was a great video (U.P. Winter Getaway in Time). My wife, I and two other couples took an almost exact trip this past fall and enjoyed it tremendously. It was wonderful to see the same places in the deep of winter. Thank you.
Tue 12/10/2013 8:16 PM
Steve Mills - Emmett, MI

I love your show, keep up the great work.

Bill Kacanowski - Ray TWP, MI

I love the eastern Upper Peninsula; we have property in northern Luce County. This week’s show was awesome! Especially the part about the Snow Train up in Ontario! Please do more in this area.
Tue 12/10/2013 9:52 PM
John Biggar - Roscommon, MI

We really enjoyed the snowmobiling in the U.P. show. We have been to some of the places where the snowmobiles were, and it is fun to relive some of those experiences.
Wed 12/11/2013 8:22 AM
Michael Cox - Perry, MI

I've always wanted to go to Grand Island, but never thought of it in the winter. It sounded very interesting. I really like the shows there. There is so much to see in Michigan, not much reason for leaving the state except for some of the parks.
Thu 12/12/2013 8:42 PM
Chris & Denise Vouaux - Pinconnig, MI

This was the first time we watched the show. It was a very wonderful show and we will be watching more.

I love the show (West Branch Winter). Because it shows so many places to visit that people would not know about. Thank you!
Wed 12/18/2013 12:43 PM
Scott Stoinski - Mt. Morris, MI

I loved everything about it (West Branch Winter).This is my area, I have traveled I-75 north and east of it for years, and just love the outdoors. Many people travel many miles to view the world but little do they know; the world is here in Michigan. And you know the main enjoyment of my trips? It's the drive and views. Most times you can do it all in one day, but a few days are the best. Thanks for the programs.
Tue 12/10/2013 9:20 PM
Ben Pinkowski - Kalamazoo, MI

The scenery (in U.P. Winter Getaway in Time) was spectacular and much of it was from the area that most people (myself included), don't get a chance to see in winter. The snow and ice shots were magnificent!
Tue 12/10/2013 11:16 PM
Robert Schwartz - Bay City, MI

I thought it (U.P. Winter in Time) was very informative, and picturesque, there was more to see than I ever really realized.
Sat 12/21/2013 11:59 AM
Amber Carlson - Ludington, MI
We're always looking for new places to show shoe! We enjoyed this program (Manistique Winter) very much and can't wait to plan a trip up to try out these trails very soon! Thank you for the wonderful show with great ideas you share with us! Merry Christmas!

Ethel Braun - Canton, MI

I enjoyed the show (Winter Festival at Houghton Lake) immensely. I’m looking forward to taking a trip to Roscommon County to enjoy some of the winter sports. Especially interested in the cross country skiing.
Sat 12/28/2013 12:27 PM
Bryan Chevillet - Whitmore Lake, MI

I'm new to my area and was looking for something like this to show me where the outdoor fun is.
Sat 12/28/2013 12:40 PM

Wonderful! I would love to do more outdoor sports since I saw this show.
Sat 12/28/2013 5:00 PM

I have been going to Houghton Lake since I was a kid. I was excited to see the festivities in Houghton Lake captured on TV. Keep up the great work you guys! I watch the show every week.

Dave Windemuller - West Olive, MI
It (Winter Festival at Houghton Lake) was my favorite episode so far. So many great winter activities in one of my favorite parts of Michigan! Keep up the good work friends.

This was the first time seeing the show. We will definitely watch again and search the show archives as well!
Tue 12/31/2013 4:01 PM
Sarah Mathis - Charlotte, MI

I was not familiar with all the additional activities in Houghton Lake area in addition to Tip-Up-Town! We have a cottage in the Mancelona area and it's nice to know there are other areas close by that offer some great outdoor activities. I think the show was very informational. Great Job!
Tue 12/31/2013 10:28 PM
Brian Heyniger - Cadillac, MI

Very informative! Thanks for your hard work in putting together the show (Biking in Tawas).
