We thought the show on Schoolcraft County, the Manistique and Munising area was great. I am looking forward to getting the video, thank you.

My husband and I really had enjoyed it, as we had just been up to Kitch-iti-kipi (Big Springs) back in September. Thank You, very well done!

Mike Fejedelem - Montrose, MI

I have never seen the Munising Falls in the winter. Been there many times in the summer, but not winter. They're still beautiful even at this time of the year. I've got some little facts for you though. My wife and I were married on December 11, 1971 and honeymooned up at the Resort called The Hornets Nest on Indian Lake. We went to the Big Springs and found that it was almost completely frozen over. That sure was a surprise – and that sure was a cold winter.

Cathy Vandermeer - Grand Rapids, MI

Loved it! It was so helpful. We've been getting ‘cabin fever’.  We like to do a lot of traveling to camp, hike and kayak in the spring, summer and fall. We are novices when it comes to what to do and where to go in the U.P. during the winter. Thank you

Bill Drummond - Lake Odessa, MI

Nice look into enjoying Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the winter time. I have always wanted to go on a snowmobile trip in the U.P., and this episode really showcased how beautiful it is in winter. As well as highlighting a lot of great spots to stop along the way. A great episode as always. Thanks to everyone who makes Great Getaways possible.

Joan Mann - Bath, MI

We, my husband Robert and I, thought it was wonderful! I am a Yooper, born in Hancock. We have been to many of the places you had on your show today, but only in the summer. The Big Spring was very interesting for some friends that went with us this last August. Also have had our two young grandchildren on the raft. It is a super place to visit any time of year. We also went to the Toonerville Trolley train and boat ride, we were lucky enough to see a momma bear and two cubs. Also we went to Oswald's Bear Ranch by Newberry, it too was special. Thank you for showing the beautiful Upper Peninsula in the winter. Have been there for some of the winters too! Thank you for the DVDS, we will show it to a lot of friends. Have a GREAT time doing your programs, Rob and Joan

Loved it! It is about time they have done stuff in the U.P. of Michigan. I would love to see more shows up there, say south of the Soo down the east side of Pickford and down around. Your show is good, you cover a lot of the Upper Peninsula, thanks.

Tom, My husband and I never miss your show. Matter of fact, you were in Paradise one day several years ago and you walked into the credit union where my husband was branch manager. You almost caused him to have a heart attack! He made you take a picture with him.
