Sorry this is a thread crap but I'm bored.
AAAHH! I hate when people call the upper area of lower Michigan "up north". Everything below the bridge is "lower Michigan". I remember stopping at a gas station somewhere below the bridge and they had shirts that said "Up North" and there was a picture of the top of lower Michigan on them. I guess it's because I'm from the UP but to me everything under the bridge is lower Michigan, only the UP is up north.
Anyway, hope you get a group going.
