Connie and Bois Blancers, I might not be able to make it to Bois Blanc (maybe) in June as is, my tradtional time to return to the, beautiful north. Maybe, I can make it up in the, Fall or later in the Summer. Nothing short of a, full miracle can get us UP there, next month. I was afraid of this. Last year was one of the pinnacles of our travels. Ten hours to Big Bay, a day in Marquette, a, four wheel, crossing through the Huron Mountains, a trip to Copper Harbor and dinner in Twin lakes, where folks said, "I" looked like the, Jimmer. (I told, ya'll, we were home for a week.) Three whole days of hiking in the Porkies. Ontonagon seemed to accept us as two of their own. We checked out, several waterfalls (which makes us need to see more). Lunch in Escanaba. Back to Mackinaw City then a full day on Drummond Island, four wheelin' with the Jeeps in the mud. It all made the return to Hoosierland, fruitless.
We also spent the weekend in Frankenmuth on the coldest days in December, two weeks before those kids drove over, the Nativity. We ate at Zehnder's and shopped at Bronner's. We met Wally Bronner at the store, once. To think, he thought we should come up once a month. That guy was full of positive energy.
We love, Michigan, bigtime!
We just need to pray for bigger miracles. There's a way. We will do it.
Etienne Brule did it in a canoe but then the Indians killed him. What a way to go.
I don't think, we can canoe nor kayak to Bois Blanc but I'd love to boat there. Seeing as, I've earned, the title, "Plaunt Pal". We might as well again take, the ferry.
To have had the means to go all over, the UP one year and have very little to even get out of Indiana, the next. Our travel now seems so limited. Where is the positveness in 2011? In the killing of bin Laden? I'd much rather do a water crossing to Temperance Island in Wilderness State Park or ride my bicycle up the hill on the Turtle right into Harrisonville. It'd be nice to camp on the beach on McCrae Bay. We'll see, the UP again. It calls to us. It sounds, like, a loon.

Thanks for the thought, Connie but "Manna from Heaven's, a gift and a miracle from God given to an undeserving people. There's not much of it raining down, these days but I'm forever on the lookout. Truthfully, I'm behind on trips to the West coast, East coast, Rockies, Cascades, Europe, Latin America, Alaska, Hawaii, the solar system of Sirius, etc.
