We did a Michigan trip this summer and had a great time. Stayed just outside Marquette, Cedarville, Oscoda, Empire and Coldwater. Pictured rocks, sleeping bear dunes, Soo locks, Mackinac Island etc. Beautiful places.

Enjoy.

Hello, Topshelf -- Sitting in the house waiting for the Gator game on tv. Going to GA next month in our 233S Roo. Nice weather we are having. I would rather be camping.
