When in Michigan, Drive Around

When I think of Michigan, I invariably think of Henry Ford, cars old and new, expressways, roads winding along the Great Lakes and the price of gas!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Something for everyone who loves the outdoors
  • Cons:Too many cold, cloudy days in winter
  • In a nutshell:If you don't like the weather, wait a minute!

    Legend has it that when the first car came through his town, Henry Ford rode behind it on a bicycle and observed it very carefully. (Remember Jerry Reed singing Lord Mister Ford?)

    I just loved those hilarious Local Customs tips! And that is an awesome bridge. I guess it WOULD be fun to look our for the old automobiles-they were so handsome-looking.

    Had friends who lived by the Lake in Michigan, now I know a little about it. That is one looooong bridge!

    Thanks for visiting my Marquette page! Nice to meet another Michigander. I've got a list somewhere of "You know you're a yooper when. . . " If I find it, I'll send it to you!

    It sounds like it could get a tad cold in these parts!

    Don't know what I'd rather see - the Henry Ford Museum or the Kirtland Warbler. Maybe the museum would be easier to find.

    I wonder what is the note for: dating, to sell the car to a woman, or the guy (are you sure that the owner is guy?) wants to hire a woman to work for him or her?

    Good for you! Would love to see a picture. I can't do my own. I'm too messy. At least your son isn't home (is he?) When I'm visiting my parents with my daughters I sometimes feel like the meat in the middle of a "mean sandwich".
