I absolutely loved it! It brought back many wonderful memories of vacationing in the Keweenaw Peninsula! It is so beautiful up there. This show was wonderful to watch and I enjoyed it so very much. It is my favorite part of the Upper Peninsula.

I absolutely loved "Tour the Thumb"! I am a very long time resident of Michigan, but have never spent any time in the "Thumb". Can't wait! Thank you for a great show.

We are planning our summer camping fun! I must get new tires for my RV, and plan our next trip. My family likes to visit at least one great getaway each summer, and now is the time to plan. Thanks!

Loved the Michigan's Thumb show! I've not traveled in that area, it sure sounds like something I want to do this summer. I can't wait to plan some time over there. I am very interested in the Michigan Historical Markers and Michigan Lights this area seems to offer both. I'm a new viewer of Great Getaways. I have the DVR programmed now so that I won't miss future programs.

As always, your show was great! I think I will bring our Texas grandkids to the ship's. I can launch my boat and see them owe up. For something unique to see, go to YouTube and type in "before wakeboards", and you will see what my son's and I do in the summer. I have been at this since 1961. Take a look, and again thanks for the shows.
- Thank you Edward. That was pretty unique, and looked like fun!

I watch your programs, you give me so many great ideas where to go in Michigan. It’s hard to choose which ones you're going to go to. Keep up the good work, look forward to see what part of Michigan you're going to be in. Thanks again be safe maybe someday our paths will cross. I will be near the area of Schoolcraft county. Also in Luce county, in June 2017. I just can't wait. It’s time to get the camper ready.
