Jun 25, 2018 - Bang!

June 25 - Bang. Well, no, actually it sounded like 'flap', and then I saw shreds of tire flailing out of the wheel well, from my mirror view. We pulled over to gravel/grass shoulder of two lane Michigan 28. It separated the fender from three screws and blackened it. Quite a mess, but the wheel seemed unscathed. Five Samaritans stopped over two plus hours while we waited for road service, including one state police officer. Only 100 miles from a 10:00 departure. Now at a KOA just 3 miles from blowout. Have made appointment tomorrow at 1:00...

Jun 24, 2018 - Shipwreck Museum

June 24 - Day trip to Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. Very many mosquitos. Very well presented exhibits. We did not do the "guided tour of the oldest light (1861)"; I can only imagine the narration, "step up, step up, step up, .... Look around.

Jun 23, 2018 - Lake Superior campsite

June 23/24 - 8:30 - 2:20, 215 mi. , thus beating my "230" protocol of quitting for the day before 2:30 and/or 230 miles driven. Crossed bridge into US, long wait at customs but no issues. 20 minutes later arrived at Brimley state park (Mich.) which is on Lake Superior. Nice site. Will stay two nights and do day trips on Sunday. Our wifi hotspot is working now and should continue until the Rockies.

Aug 12, 2010 - To Brimley, MI

Munising is the gateway to a national lakeshore, forest and recreation area. The residents understand that many will arrive with the intention of seeing the Pictured Rocks and then moving on. It is to their benefit to get people to stay longer. With us, they have been successful! We leave the town of Munising with very happy memories. A radio show broadcasts from our breakfast place every morning. We talk one more time with the deejay before we head east. We are able to listen to his show for awhile until we are out of range. We intended...
