    I have been through there a few times. I am planning on driving to the UP next summer with a couple of grand sons if they aren't too busy. Where are the good fishing holes? I was near Christmas when we lived in Florida, It is on Highway 50 between Orlando and Titusville. It is kind of out there in Old Florida.

    I bet that gets interesting when you use the telephone to order stuff. I used to live at 260 Remington rd. Lots of comments from mail order places.

    Old foggy was my snowmobiling partner and drinking buddy back in the day. He hit a bit harder then me though and lost his leg to sugar. His two sons run the place now but hes still there most days. Hes been sober though for about 15 years since he lost his leg. He was quite the character in his younger days.

    Hell is where democrats make policy and the republicans agree with them.

    I’ve been thru Christmas Michigan. I was stationed at K. I. Sawed AFB in 1982 - 85. It was beautiful there but the winters were brutal. The UP was a very unique place to live and glade I was fortunate enough to have experienced it. We saw things you just don’t see in Texas.

    I've been to Nowhere (AZ), and passed through North Pole (AK) many times. Never been to Christmas (MI), though.

    It was closed a few years after you were there. I grew up and went to school in Gwinn when KI was in its prime. You would shed a tear if you saw it now. It used to kept so nice. Homes all painted lawns manicured. Now its turned into low income housing and Indian housing. paints pealing off everything, windows are broke everywhere and they even ship low income people from Detroit up here offering them free homes. My dad worked at the central heating plant and my ma taught school at McDonald elementary there. It about brings a tear to there eye when they drive through there now.

    Yea I knew that Sawyer closed, I've been assigned to 4 different bases that have been closed. In my opinion the Government closed some good bases and yes its sad to see those base a few years after they close. They are normally turned over to the state or county and they don't have the funds to keep them up like the military did. I was assigned to the F106 unit and that unit was deactivated in 1985 which was the reason I left K.I. We lived on base and our son went to school in Gwinn. The last month we were in the UP we rented a cabin on Little Shag lake and I put my boat in and fished every single day until we left. It was great fun and good memories. We enjoyed snowmobiling, ice fishing, smelting (that was an experience), summer time fishing and camping.
