What in the heck does this mean?The only thing I didn't like was the toilet paper situation. I'm sure I'd manage just fine though

I changed the name of the title.

I also started a thread on the Meet board for our upcoming DIS Meet at Great Lakes Crossing on November 15th. Put a link on there for this thread hoping to get more MI DISers to come over here.

Not really a vacation, but we do stay overnight - we never miss the Renaissance Festival, except in years when we have newborns (both my girls are late summer babies)

And of course the Irish Hills and MIS
Colleen,
Did you say Baldwin?? Go there all the time......buddy of mine has a cabin there.....In fact will be going there Nov. 1-4. His cabin is west of town.....
We turn left at Big Star Grocery (south end of Baldwin), go about 5 miles.
Nice little cabin on Oxbo Lake. I love it there.......We have looked in to buying a lot by him several times.....but we end up spending our money on our Disney trips!!!!!

We kayak the Piere Marquette all the time.....Have you ever been in Baldwin for the Troutorama festival?? We go to that every year......I think this year was our 18th !!!!

Also, DW and I do Grand Traverse resort usually every Feb. for a weekend retreat......DW gets rooms half off through her employer...We love it there too...

My son is also a senior at U of D. I think you and I mentioned this before; long time ago....maybe when they were just freshmen.

Hello Michiganders!

I stumbled across this thread and thought I would join.

West side here just south of GR, Yankee Springs.

DH is originally from Dearborn and also went to Fordson

Fall in Michigan is my second favorite time of year, went to Robbinets 2 weekends ago and got tons of yummy stuff.

This weekend we are off to Mid Michigan Ren Festival in Frankenmuth, Have to get my yearly fix of German food and fudge

Nice to meet so many Disers from Michigan.

DD and I were at Disney a month ago and never saw 1 Dis

Again, glad I found you all

I like this title even better! I thought there was another thread about and anything Michigan.. but it was the title that got changed. I like it.. Everything Michigan!

Today is a gloomy day.. wet and cold. Oh well.. I think Fall is finally trying to set in. I hope everyone is having a good week.

You guys ready to watch the 3rd and final presidential debate?

I like shopping at Great Lakes Crossing. Maybe I'll stop by for DIS Meet.

BTW... I think I finally found a "home" here. I am in no "cliques" with anyone or with any thread.. but here.. I feel like I can talk about anything.. and everything about Michigan and whatever else there is..

Thank you for this thread and I'll try to bump it up whenever I can so this thread won't get lost or go too far back.

You're right about the comparrison to AK, Although I find that portions of the Wild Africa exhibit are nicer than some of those at AK.

You are so right about fall in Michigan. As someone who is originally from California I must say that it is quite impressive! On my street alone we have a nice assortment of colors. My yard especially, lol.

Driving to WDW

As we are new to Michigan we'll be driving (instead of making a cross country flight) down next month. Any advice on routes to take? How long does it typically take you? Our current plan is to leave on a Friday around noon and drive to Chatanooga, then finish the drive the next day.

I know we were talking about the old Kelly & Company show on this thread a while back............I saw on TV today that on Tuesday at 10am they're starting to celebrate 60 years of channel 7 & it'll include a best of Kelly & Company show & I think that John Kelly & Marilyn Turner are going to be there too.
