What did you think of this week's show?
Where did you get the walking stick you were using when hiking in the UP? It looked like it folded up. Thank you
It does fold up! Tom's walking stick was purchased at Rocky's Great Outdoors in Burton, MI.
A quick note about the map around Manistique. The road listed as 94 in not interstate 94 as the emblem states. (Interstate I-94 runs from Detroit to Chicago) Maybe nobody else noticed.
Yep, good catch. There is a mistake in the graphics for the "Upper Peninsula Fall Travel Planner" show. We caught it after the show was finished and are unable to fix it. All references to Highway 94 on maps found on this website will have the correct highway sign shortly. Sorry for any confusion.

I watched the show today (1/5/08) on WGTE/Channel 30 in Toledo and am not entirely sure that it is the same show. However, I did enjoy it and found it to be informative. I have visited several of the locations in the show and the show reminded me that there is much to see in the UP.

I am always looking for more places in Michigan to view in the fall. Living in the lower penninsula I usually stay down here. I have been wanting to get up to the UP in the fall but just haven't had time yet. I have never been to tip-up town but I am an avid ice fisherman. I had no idea of all the other activities going on in and around that area. I will be sure to make it to tip-up town next year. Your show gives so many ideas and brings up many new things that I would have never known about. I now plan on being home every Saturday morning to catch your show. Thank You!

I loved your show this week. Everything you could want to do in Winter weather is waiting for you in Grey County. I have asked for information so that maybe I could get a chance to enjoy a Winter getaway.
Bay City, MI
I really enjoyed this weeks show and really try and set aside the time to catch your show every week. I am a very busy person with three kids involved in a multitude of sports. I love to travel but struggle with finding the time and extra money to get away. Your show has opened my eyes to lots of great places that are within a couple hours drive and I can get away, see some great places and not have to spend a lot of money. Not sure if you are exclusive to Michigan but Ohio has some great places such as Hocking hills in Logan county. Which is actually closer than the UP at least from Toledo.. Thanks for a wonderful show and I will continue to watch in 2008.
Just at the time I think you cannot out do a program you come up with a better one. Your program is out of this world. Thanks so much.
Mt. Pleasant, MI
I really enjoyed this week's show! My parents have a house on Indian Lake and we go up there snowmobiling in the winter and just to relax in the summer. I also enjoy the colors in the fall. As long as I've been going up there, I never heard about the Environmental Lab trail! It looked like fun and I would like to get a group of friends together to enjoy a winter getaway!
I thought this weeks show was great. We drove down 94 from Munising to Manistique on our way home in Sept. and thought it was a beautiful stretch of road.
