Gail Clark - Chelsea, MI

It (Great Lakes Bay Waterways) was very interning. I like the part about the tall ships and the cruise you can take.

Sue Smith - Chesterfield, MI
Just wonderful (Nautical Heart of the Great Lakes)! I live near Lake St. Clair, so this is helpful information.

Charles Hood - Sterling Heights, MI
This was the first time I saw the show. It gave me a lot of information!

Jackie Radzwion - Columbus, MI
Great! I’ve lived near Lake St. Clair all my life, so the show was nostalgic as well as surprising. I saw a lot of things I never knew about.

Your shows on the Upper Peninsula are the best. Even though I have been up there over 30 times, I never get tired of seeing it. I have 57 of your shows recorded on my DVR. Next time you go, can I come with you!?

Bill Feil - Sarnia, ON

We enjoyed the show (Nautical Heart of the Great Lakes) very much, and would like to visit some of the areas.

Maxine Masta - Walkerville, MI

I'm interested in the river boat cruise in this episode (Nautical Heart of the Great Lakes). We like to take small trips to the northern countries sometimes. We live in western, lower Michigan. I've always wanted to try a riverboat cruise, thought this would be a start.
Thu 5/15/2014 11:31 AM
Tera Jones - Imlay City, MI

I loved this episode (Nautical Heart of the Great Lakes) as well as many of your other episodes. I only caught the last part of it and set it to record on my DVR. Something happened and it didn't record! I wanted information on the things in the episode. I grew up boating on Anchor Bay and loved it! It was nice to see you down in my area, although I often visit the other places you feature. Great Show!

Paul Ferraiuolo - Allen Park, MI

Always very entertaining and educational. Keep up the good work!
Fri 5/16/2014 12:23 PM
Randy Farb - Flint, MI

I loved it (Tawas Bay Circle Tour)! I used to travel from Flint to Oscoda along M-15 in the summer before health issues stopped me. This episode brought back many pleasant memories. Thank you!
Fri 5/16/2014 5:21 PM
Barbara Winiarski - Fort Gratiot, MI

We have lived in Michigan for all our lives, but watching your program has introduced us to many sights and places we were not aware of. We are planning to go to several of these places when we want to take off and enjoy more of our great state.
Fri 5/16/2014 6:27 PM
Neal Marrison - Lansing, MI

Another awesome show! We often use the information from your shows to plan adventures for my wife and I. Thank you so much for your work and the DVD!

Andrew Kapusta Jr. - Clinton Township, MI

From the first stop to the last, it is always a treat to watch Great Getaways! We plan our summer stops from your show. Keep up the great work! Thank you.

Excellent show (Tawas Bay Circle Tour)! I enjoy the area for weekend trips.
Sat 5/17/2014 12:02 PM
Peter Wojda - Troy, MI

I enjoyed this episode (Tawas Bay Circle Tour), especially the segment on River Road. Our family loves this area of Michigan.
Sat 5/17/2014 12:01 PM
Leann Benson - Hersey, MI

Awesome! I think it is time for us to spend some quality time in East Michigan!
Sat 5/17/2014 12:04 PM
Robert Crummel - Jackson, MI

I enjoyed seeing an area of the state I haven't explored to any great extent. Although I have to travel alone now, I believe I'll take that little circle trip this summer.
Sat 5/17/2014 12:03 PM
Roger Ott - Bay City, MI

I thought this show was very informative! I didn't know the Paddle Wheel was still running. My Father owned a Cabin by Five Channels Dam about 40 years ago. My-my how things have changed! Now I have a must to do: take my Grandson on the "Grand Tour"!
Sat 5/17/2014 12:07 PM
Jeffrey Peterson - Saginaw, MI

I've done the Tawas tour many years ago and loved it all. Watching this week’s show showed me some sites that I've missed. Someday I may go back to re-see these.
Sat 5/17/2014 12:07 PM
Charlene Smith - Wyandotte, MI

We love this area! You showed us places we didn't know were there. We can’t wait to plan new places to see in our future visits.
Sat 5/17/2014 12:08 PM
Nancy Ellegood - Dearborn, MI

My husband told me that he was fascinated by your program. While we mostly travel around the western side of the state, he wants to visit the Tawas Bay area on the eastern side of the state. Thank you.
Sat 5/17/2014 12:13 PM
Rebekah Mason - Clarkston, MI

My husband and I always watch Great Getaways every week. The Tawas Bay Circle Tour was especially enjoyable, as we have a cottage on Long Lake and now will be able to use the tour guide to more thoroughly explore the entire area. Thank you!
Sat 5/17/2014 12:26 PM
Patrick Manor - Trenton, MI

I loved it (Huron Shores Circle Tour)! I watch Great Getaways all the time. You make it so relaxing to watch. I just want to get out there and fish, canoe or do the trails. Thank you for a great show!
Sat 5/17/2014 1:25 PM
Susan Elwell - Harrison Township, MI

We have recently moved here and love this show. It gives us ideas on areas of the state to visit. This (Tawas Bay Circle Tour) is a must -to-do on the list.
Sat 5/17/2014 1:27 PM
Dan Stoyka - Royal Oak, MI

We have a vacation house near West Branch and we are always looking for new places to see on the east side of the state. We have been to a few that were on the show, but found there are some we didn't know about. Thank you for such an interesting show.
Sat 5/17/2014 2:41 PM
Jerry Pell - Eaton Rapids, MI

I enjoy your shows very much. They get me ready for a fun and new adventure in our great state. Thanks!
Sat 5/17/2014 7:59 PM

I enjoyed the scenery throughout the Tawas Bay Circle Area. There are a lot of different things to do when vacationing up north.
Sat 5/17/2014 9:06 PM

Very well done! I enjoy the points of interest, and the commentary. Keep up the good work!

My mother-in-law lives in AuGres, and this week’s show (Tawas Bay Circle Tour) will provide us a lot of different recreational opportunities when we go spend time there.
Mon 5/19/2014 12:42 AM
David Wilson - Montrose, MI

Our plans are to see more of Michigan this year, and this show (Tawas Bay Circle Tour) was sure inspiring.
Mon 5/19/2014 6:26 AM
Sarah  Ferguson - Galesburg, MI

I enjoyed it (Tawas Bay Circle Tour). I’m looking into visiting that area. It’s one of the few places in Michigan I've not explored.
Mon 5/19/2014 8:08 AM
Diane Wolf - Northville, MI

Houghton Lake is beautiful. Your shows are informative and have many different sites to see while traveling. Keep them coming! Great work!
Mon 5/19/2014 8:02 PM
Ryan Johnston - Plymouth, MI

Just when I thought Michigan was running out of surprises for me. Thanks for filling me in about Tawas!
Mon 5/19/2014 8:09 PM
Keith Voight - Fenton, MI

Awesome! We were just there (Tawas) last weekend and loved it. I wished we would have known sooner about all the stuff that is available in the area to do. We will be going back.
Tue 5/20/2014 1:17 PM
Janeen Ryan - St. Clair Shores, MI

Been years since we went to Tawas, it reminded me of why we visited in the first place. I love a quick getaway.
Tue 5/20/2014 8:58 PM
Russell Taylor - Byron Center, MI

Great episode (Tawas Bay Circle Tour)! I hope to get up that way soon. I love learning about a new spot to explore in Michigan.
Thu 5/22/2014 9:19 PM

I enjoyed this week's show very much! Especially because, I have been going to East Tawas for long weekends for about the last five years.
Sat 5/24/2014 12:08 PM

Today’s show (Tour the Thumb) was absolutely great!

Marie Booze - Windsor, ON

The show (Tour the Thumb) was great. I've been up near that area, but didn't realize there was so much more to explore. Thanks!
Mon 5/26/2014 8:22 PM
Kimberly Emond - Hazel Park, MI

I haven't visited the "Thumb Area" in quite some years. Thanks for reminding me of how beautiful it is. It's time to go back!
Wed 5/28/2014 10:42 AM
Barbara Chiapparo - Howell, MI

I really enjoyed it (Tour the Thumb)! I grew up in Caro and visited many of the spots you highlighted as a child. Your show made me want to go back and visit them again. We watch your show all the time; it's so nice to have a program highlighting wonderful places to see IN MICHIGAN! Thank you.
Fri 5/30/2014 5:40 PM
Larry Watson - Clio, MI

Excellent programs! I've learned more from your shows about Michigan and surrounding areas, than anywhere else. I look forward to your programs every week, keep up good work. Thank you.
Fri 5/30/2014 8:18 PM
Rick Jaros - Linden, MI

I loved it (Roscommon County Circle Tour). I wish you were on every day, why not?
Sat 5/31/2014 11:15 AM
Randy Farb - Flint, MI

I have always heard about Houghton Lake, and I was close to it once, but have never been there. Your program showed me what I am missing, and I'm thinking of taking a trip up there later this year based on your program. Thanks!
Sat 5/31/2014 12:16 PM
Fredrick Zirotte - Oak Park, MI

I really enjoyed this week’s show and it was such a refreshing site after this brutal winter. I enjoyed seeing this part of the state. It's amazing how one can live in a state all your life and not be aware of all of the wonderful offerings that it has. This show has made me aware of so many wonderful areas to explore and gather memories. Keep up the great work!
Sat 5/31/2014 1:33 PM
Sue Smith - Chesterfield, MI

Great job! I really enjoyed your (Roscommon County) circle tour and all the points of interest that I did not know about.
Sat 5/31/2014 5:47 PM
Dennis Alpin - Flint, MI

I thought I had seen all of the Great Getaways, but this one surprised me. I haven't been to Roscommon County in years and had no idea there is so much to see and do in this area. Thanks for the program and information. My wife and I plan to travel there soon.
Sat 5/31/2014 10:25 PM
S. Reimus - Saginaw, MI

You found very interesting places that are right where I have been, but had no knowledge of. As a retiree, I'm looking for things to see in my home state and this program today really surprised me with the points of interest you showed. Many thanks.

Allen Veenkant - Freeland, MI

The show about the Roscommon County lakes was beautiful and inspiring. I was at both Higgins Lake and Lake St. Helen last year for the first time and they were both beautiful. The show told me I need to go back again this summer to enjoy all the places shown on your show.
Tue 6/3/2014 11:39 AM
Henri Brenton - Bloomfield Hills, MI

I've had the privilege of owning a second home, built in Roscommon (north side of Higgins Lake area), since 1980.  Your excellent shows (and digital high-technology), have informed me about things to experience in nature and commercially in my 'backyard'. Both old and new that I have not been aware of.  So thank you for your civic contributions.  I make a point to spend as much money with local merchants as possible, to help keep them stay in business. They also gain from your exposure. Keep up the good work!
Tue 6/3/2014 9:10 PM
Wanda Everitt - Freeland, MI

I enjoyed it (Roscommon County Circle Tour) very much. I love touring the state and these were places I never heard of before. We can't wait to visit these places. I have been to Houghton Lake and Roscommon before, but didn't know about the trails or the firemen’s museum, the old fashion village, and other places. Thank you very much.
Tue 6/3/2014 10:04 PM
Kent Freeman - Owosso, MI

It was really interesting (Roscommon County Circle Tour) and I enjoyed learning about all of the different actives to do in the Roscommon area.
Sun 6/8/2014 7:52 AM
Claire Jennings - MIlan, MI

It (Huron County – Thumbs up!) was wonderful !  Thank you for going to the camp grounds!
Sun 6/8/2014 3:26 PM
Douglas Black - Prudenville, MI

You did a great job of covering the Roscommon county area. You pointed out areas that I did not know about and they will be on my "bucket" list.
Sun 6/15/2014 9:01 PM
R. W. Firman - Republic, MI

The show was fantastic (Nautical Heart of the Great Lakes). I grew up in the area and lived, swam picnicked, romanced, and fished most of my adult life on Lake St. Clair. Truly, it is the thing I've missed most since moving to the Upper Peninsula. But who says I can't visit. Who knows maybe we will meet on the lake even though I met Tom many years ago at Outdoorrama. Best wishes guys!
Tue 6/17/2014 8:35 PM
Larry Banas - Howell, MI

Very interesting (Grey County Ontario Outdoors)! It makes me want to come and see everything for myself.

Awesome show (Grey County Ontario Outdoors), I really enjoyed it!
Sat 6/21/2014 11:59 AM

I watched it (Big Island Canoe Wilderness) for the very first time today and it made me want to go north to see the sights with my family.
Sat 6/21/2014 12:06 PM
Sandra Sands - New Baltimore, MI

I really enjoyed it. Now that my husband and I are beginning to venture out more, it's nice to see places that would be great to see and visit.
Tue 6/24/2014 8:00 PM
David VanLente - Cadillac, MI

Awesome! We have wanted to explore this area for a long time and this just did the trick! I’m really interested in the kayaking from lake to lake and wilderness camping. Keep up the good work!

Dave Travis - Redford Township, MI

Excellent show and good photography (Heart of Michigan Circle Tour). I liked the interviews with the locals. Wish I was there now!

Just got back, spent a day in West Branch then onto Mackinaw Island. What a great trip! Tasted some wine, ate some great food and saw the sites. I love the show; you guys do a great job. Thanks.

Allen Veenkant - Freeland, MI

I thought it was great (Heart of Michigan Circle Tour)! I learned about a lot of places including a zip line, a great restaurant, and about the many lakes and the Rifle River. I recently went with a group from the Chippewa Nature Center in Midland to hike in the Rifle River Recreation Area. I want to go back and kayak, canoe, and bike. Now I will know that I can get more information on the area at the Tanger Outlet Mall.

Loved the show (Heart of Michigan Circle Tour), and want to plan a trip for my family. Thanks, for sharing Michigan to all of us.
