Off On Vacation

We are leaving Sunday morning for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for a 10 day camping trip.

This is a beautiful area, one we have been to several times and will likely go back to several more.

We will take a lot of pictures and share them with you when we get back.

Take care and keep up the good fight, I am imposing a virtually complete news blackout on myself for the next 10 days.

I want to leave you with one more image. The picture below is a drawing of a sign that some students at Michigan Tech made and put by the side of the road coming into Houghton in the middle of the night. Word is that it really did look like a state road sign. If you go to the UP, stop at the St Ignace welcome center, they have a picture of the sign along with the story. This sign plays on the fact that in the winter Houghton is a pretty remote place. They average something like 20+ foot of snow year.

AM, thanks for stopping by.

Thanks all, as much as I love blogging, I will not miss the news for a few days.

Take care.

Chuck - enjoy! I assume you will have better weather than I did up there. The self-imposed news blackout is pretty easy really. Hard to find a newspaper without a 10 mile drive from McClain SP, and impossible to find a wireless signal. Just send us some smoke signals from your campfire!
