We Barely Had Road Construction Delays This Year…And That Sucks!

We’re happy to be doing all of this traveling in the great state of Michigan.  Our state hasn’t gotten a lot of great press over the years, but it is a beautiful place.  We have access to lakes everywhere.  The Upper Peninsula, or U.P. as it’s known, has miles of beautiful forests and lakes.  Visiting just a few of these places has been great.
