There are so many points of interest in the Upper Peninsula that I was not aware of. I will include them when we plan our color trip in a few weeks. Thank you for this great show!

Great show! It made me want to get in my car and drive to the Upper Peninsula and trace your steps this fall. Thank you!

I have not seen your show in a while. I must admit  I am a late coming fan. Your show aired Saturday late afternoons but no more. You provide info we do not find otherwise.I hope they bring your show back!
Did you ever offer a segment on Drummond or Bois Blanc Islands? Thank you for your time.
Fan always, Susan Lyons

Hi Susan,
We still do not understand why WKAR in Lansing took us off the air after 25 years and put us on one of their cable only channels called Create.  We have had many letters asking us the same thing. I do wish that we were still on but it is out of our control.

We went to Bob Lo (Bois Blanc) for one of our PBS specials and have not been to Drummond Island in many years.

Awesome as usual! I haven't seen one dedicated to the Porcupine Mountains. That would be a great show. My wife and I have been to many of the places you've filmed.  Some of them because of you, including our second anniversary kayaking and camping trip in the Big Island Lake Wilderness Area in July. Absolutely gorgeous! Keep it up, we love your show!

I felt compelled to write you and tell you that you have created the most entertaining and informative program for Michigan and the surrounding area. Tom, you are the perfect host for the program! Your voice and demeanor are a perfect fit! I look forward to seeing every program each week. I also take notes as the program(s) run. Thank you again for producing such a GREAT program!

(Upper Peninsula Beauty) was a really nice show with lots of wonderful and useful information. The video was awesome and we enjoy watching the program. It gives us great ideas on where to go on our Harley Davison motorcycles

Loved (Upper Peninsula Beauty), I will take the animals and fauna over the others any day. I am from Oregon I have only been in Michigan a few years. Your show helps me find places where I can get close to nature that I would never find.

Loved it, but I really enjoy all of the shows in this series. I learn something from every episode, even if it is an area that I am familiar with, I really hope this show stays on for a long time.

Of all the times my wife and I have been there,I can't believe how much we have missed. The town is beautiful and we love the scenic views. Your show was just what we needed to head back next year. Great job and thank you!

Great show! Why would anyone go outside of Michigan to see places? When there is so much to do and see right here in our state or our own back yards - so to speak? Keep up the good work and looking forward to your next show.

The show on Tawas Bay area was superb.  I tell everyone about your show to learn more about our beautiful, amazing state. There is no reason to vacation anywhere else but in Michigan.

The mixture of colors, smells, and sounds makes Michigan a great place to visit in the fall. That is the great pleasure of Michigan. Great show!

Nathan Mackovjak - Mount Pleasant, MI

It would be great if the episodes were available to view online, I hate to waste your money and resources having a DVD shipped to me. Is that feature available and I'm missing it? I’m a big fan of the show, keep doing great work!

Hi Nathan,
Most, if not all of our Online Travel Planners (http://www.greatgetaways.tv/travelplanner.html) have video clips from each episode and many have the entire episode available to view online.

I think all of your shows are great! They show us what's in the great state of Michigan and where we might like to go. There are interesting places to go and things to see that are close to our area. Keep up the good work. I enjoy your shows and tape just about all of them.

I’m just getting ready to watch it now. I've been watching the show for several years now, and haven't been disappointed yet. Love the show, the format, and how you keep things real. Keep up the good work.

A wonderful episode (Oscoda Autumn Splendor)! I often kayak and camp along the Manistee near Mesick, and with all this cold weather today it was a great getaway. Keep up the good work.

I saw only the last section about the river cruise. I was very impressed and wanted to see more about getaway places here in Michigan. Thank you for this program, I've been here all my life and am just learning of our great state.

We live in Michigan and we are still finding great new places thanks to your show! We always record it. We went to visit Tawas city after watching your program about visiting downtown and touring the lighthouse. We really enjoyed the area!
