Michiganders, in general, like to complain about the weather. All winter long we moan about how cold it is, how much snow we have, etc. Then, the first time it gets above 75 degrees, we start in about how hot it is! It was terrific to watch a show that glorified winter and all the sports that cold weather and snow make possible. It made me feel grateful to live up North!

I've launched from the boat lauch there on McKeever Lake. When I was in Boy Scouts about 10-odd years ago, we took a weekend trip and canoed across McKeever to the peninsula on the other side and camped there. Launch works fine for canoes, maybe not for trailers.

3/13/2022 - Episode 1211 Segment: "Houghton Lake Flats Observation Platform"

I was at that gazebo last July. It was so relaxing. The water's surface is teeming with life ... all manner of insects including ones that walk on water and birds of all sizes swooping down and gobbling them up. I was there for a half hour just marveling at all the miracle of life.

I loved this segment. After seeing the "camps" offered, I immediately went to the real estate website and started looking! I loved the one on Thunder Lake. I always try to watch your show. It's down to earth information that's usable and practical for the everyday person. I like the fact that you show affordable places to stay, camp or eat. Keep up the good work.
