Marquette, MI  


Hey... what's up? I've been on the road for a week or so. Traveling with Clark, we stop for the first night in Cleveland. After having a beer down by the water front and visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we stumble upon a rock concert. To my joyous surprise, it's one of my favorite bands, widespread panic. Killer show... only a couple thousand people, so you can walk right up front if you want. Too cool.

The next day we drive to Put-In-Bay, OH...taking the ferry onto the island. Clark has family, so we hung around with them and at their brand new waterfront/dockside bar and grill. Living the good life!

Finally, we make it to the real wilderness... the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We cross the Mackinac bridge, driving over the point where Lake Michigan and Lake Huron meet up. Three more hours of driving gets us from the northern tip of Lake Michigan to the southern shore of the largest fresh water lake in the world, Lake Superior.

Nothing but miles of wild pine forest, sandy lake shore, rivers, streams, waterfalls and some of the largest mosquitoes to ever consume your flesh. Nestled among it, on the harbor is Marquette. A college town that grows from about 15,000 to 23,000 when students are in town attending, Northern Michigan University.

We have been exploring a bit, mingling with family and friends and enjoying the fresh air and bright northern sunshine. Clark has been hunting for mural space to paint. There is an art show this weekend called Art on the Rocks.We may stay for that opening day, then off to Cleveland and back to Brooklyn.

Hope to see you on the way.... maybe a stop in Detroit to catch up with an old friend. We'll see what the road brings....


What next?
