Jun 27, 2013 - The North Shore of Lake Superior

Day 114 - 115 of The Big Trip Getting ready to leave on the 26th, Clark covered himself from head to toe, in order to avoid the swarms of mosquitoes. I didn't step outside, because the repellant seemed to attract instead of repel them. We had fewer than 60 miles to drive to the Tettegouche State Park, on Lake Superior. Minnesota has joined our list of states where we will not use the state parks, because they're too expensive. The temperature dropped considerably, but there were still mosquitoes. After overcoming a slight leveling...

The lighthouse was built in response to...

Oct 2, 2011 - Making Progress

We left Petoskey in partly cloudy skies but cool temps and managed to get over the Mackinaw Bridge before the big winds started. We stopped to see our friends the Cheesemans, who run the Cut River Party Store in Epaufette. They were doing well (except Margaret had a touch of pneumonia) and we bought some of their famous beef jerky to munch on while we drive. By the time we got to Escanaba, the rain was really coming down and winds had started to really blow as the weatherman had predicted. We spent the night in the casino parking lot with...
