I used to visit your beautiful Island back in the '80s. I got there by plane, ferry and snowmobile (which scared me to death, I might add). Landing on the Island, I felt immediately peaceful. Coming from a somewhat busy city (Midland, MI) I was in awe of the quiet and tranquility. I spent a lot of time walking in the woods. I had a friend who built a cottage on the Island out near the point where you can see the Mackinaw Bridge. It was a beautiful spot. He also owned the Midas Muffler shop (or was it Tuffy Muffler) in Cheboygan for awhile. I have lost track of him over the years and would be curious to know if anyone still sees him there or knows where he has gone. His name is Ron Halm. If you can fill me in, I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Kevin, thanks for updating me on Ron. Your name sounds familiar. Did you work on the Ferry way back in the '80s by any chance? Or I may be thinking of someone else. Anyway, if you talk with him again, mention that you are in contact with a person from long ago named Crusty. He may remember the name. Sure would like to talk with him before he leaves town again. Thanks again for letting me know (and so quickly, too.)

We bought Ron's place in '01. He's a nice guy. You can see what the place looks like now if you click the link in my signature.

Yes I used to own the North Star ferry. Ron used to ride with me all the time. I don't know how long he is staying in cheboygan, He said that he was going to try and sell his house before he left. If I run into him I will tell him you asked about him.

Rob....I went to the web site to see the picts. of the cottage you bought from Ron. Boy, does that bring back memories!! You have really made the place look so nice since the last time I saw it when it was in the building stage. And the picts. of the sunsets and the bridge....I must have taken a zillion picts. of those sunsets and the shoreline. It was deja vu! Thanks for giving me the web site address to go to.
