Absolutely great community. I spent the last 5 years at our property here and loved every minute of it, before recently selling and moving to Oscoda for a new investment opportunity. But I highly recommend Au Gres, the people are always friendly and the fishing is off the charts. We had a family of Eagles that nested by our property and I never got used to seeing them up close they are stunning to watch hunt at dusk every evening. ❤ AuGres

I grew up in the Eastern UP in the 70s, an avid bike rider, but had never heard of this trail. I canoed the Fox River in the 80s, cris-crossed the area by car a hundred times, still had never heard of it till now.

A great show as always , been watching for over 20 years and have traveled to many of the places you have featured. My favorite is Lake of the Clouds.

The show on the upper peninsula state parks was great as are all of your other shows. However I was curious why you did not include the Baraga State Park?

Hi James, we squeezed in as many U.P. state parks as we could.

The way I look at it, enjoy pasties any way you like. I’m a ketchup guy, my Dad was a butter guy and my Mom and both my sisters were/are ketchup gals. Just enjoy.

11/30/2023 - Facebook Photo ("Eating Pasties")

Gravy for the win! Granny said if it needs ketchup, the kitchen needs a new cook...😆

11/30/2023 - Facebook Photo ("Eating Pasties")

I'm a Yooper woman myself and she is 100% wrong! Gravy for the win! Two reasons, the ketchup is cold and cools it down way too fast, and the taste.

11/30/2023 - Facebook Photo ("Eating Pasties")

Never mess with a Yooper woman, Tom. 😏 Ketchup 💯

You fight it out....just give me the PASTY!!!

I love a pic of people enjoying PASTIES! ♥️ It is literally my job to facilitate and moderate Ketchup v. Gravy debates DAILY! I also hear people saying they use BBQ sauce, butter and sour cream like on a baked potato, ketchup AND MUSTARD, or ranch! 🤷🏼‍♀️

Is there a way to search your website for previous episodes? We are interested in episodes on Bruce Peninsula in Canada. Also did you ever cover the ferry from Bruce Peninsula to Manitolin Island?

We are working on a search function for the website, but you can always look through the Great Getaways archives for past episodes. You can also explore Online Travel Planners by location, such as Bruce County, Ontario and Grey County, Ontario. I hope that helps you find what you're looking for. Thanks for watching Great Getaways!

Interesting to see so many of our favorite spots in the "cooler" season. We love your series and the places in Michigan you've been to. Sometimes viewing is reminiscing, sometimes planning.

Been far too long but as one who grew up around Sleeping Bear the Log Slide was cool. Also very fond of Twelvemile Beach, it was a magical place for a family picnic back in the 60s, with the birches and dipping our feet in frigid Gitche-Gumee. Tough to get to back then, over those old dusty trails. Would love to get back there.
