Where in the UP? I grew up in Kingsford.

And, I use your charcoal.

We're from downstate, but are UPer wannabes. We go to the Porkies for a week every August, but this year my wife had some vacation time that had to be used, so we threw in a few days in the Keweenaw. We also drove H-58 Munising to Grand Marais on the way back (stayed in Grand Marais) for the last time before they pave it. About 15 years ago, there was a parcel near 12-Mile Beach (just about my favorite place in the world) we could have bought for a song, and I said at the time if they ever paved H-58 it would be worth a fortune. One of many missed opportuities.


Cool, I'm living in California right now and dreaming of a time when I can move back to what I consider the real world. It won't happen any time soon but hopefully there will come a day...
They don't make the charcoal there any more, I think it's from Tennessee now.
