Edward Canfield - St. Johns, MI

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 wish that they included where someone could rent watercraft, while vacationing in the area. That would have been great!  But, really enjoyed watching! I have told friends already about this show and website. Thank you!

Can't wait to see the Soo again. I am a totally disabled vet, and unable to travel any more to the U.P.  So, these DVDs will be wonderful to look at again, and again. Thanks for the offer.

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.
Your friend always, Mickey Said.

I am really looking forward to the show about Ludington. I would really like to see a show about the cities of Northeastern Michigan. My wife and I are purchasing a home in Cheboygan, so naturally we would love to see a show about that town. Also: Rodgers City, Alpena, Indian River, Topinabee, etc. We have been watching the show for over 20 years. Keep up the good work!

Hi Tom, this is John. I worked up in the paint mix room, so I had the pleasure to work with you, and other paint people. I enjoy watching your show, especially when you are on the AuSable River. My mother has a house on 7 Mile Hill Gust, across from the river queen. You're friend, John Sharick.

I really enjoy watching Great Getaways, and think you (Tom) are a great host. In July of 2014 I had a major heart attack which led me to a quadruple bypass, and a tracheostomy a few months later. Prior to the bypass and trach, my wife and I loved traveling up north every year. Since all of that, my life has changed completely where I cannot travel very far. Great Getaways somewhat eases the sadness of being up north, but there is no substitute like being there. Thanks for being a great host and bringing Northern Michigan to me.

Violet Welsheimer - Trufant, MI

I watched your show for the first time today and LOVED it. We've been vacationing in the U.P. for years, but NOT in the winter. Seeing all the summer places in the winter on your show today, made me think ‘wow, we need to try the U.P. this winter’! Last summer we bought property near Munising and sleds with the aim of winter U.P. fun, but have failed to make time for this adventure. My plan is to show the family a couple of your fun winter snowmobile DVD's, and I'm betting that somehow time will be made!

I enjoy all the shows, great ideas for places I want to visit and recreate.
