It was great! We had a cabin near Mio. Used to pass through or stop in West Branch, but never did the Rifle River. Now we would like to see the area and explore. Like the hiking areas available that were shown on the show. Thank You.

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.

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!

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.
