I love my image of Mackinac Island more than anything else in life.

I camped at Wilderness State Park with my dad in the late fifties and early sixties. We always motored over to the Island in our homebuilt John-boat with the 7.5 hp Evinrude. I vowed to winter over on the Island someday.

In the seventies, when I was a PADI scuba instructor, after having been out of the country for a few years, diving in the Islas de la Bahia with a treasure diving expedition, and visiting Southeast Asia as an employee of the government; I found my way back to the Island many times with my advanced students. We dove the Cedarville, an inverted limestone ore carrier about 3 miles south of the Island, and the Minneapolis, hard against the south stanchion of Big Mac, scores of times.

When I got married in 1984, I flew my bride to Mackinac Island in a Beechcraft Baron. We stayed on the Island again this past summer.

As a retired airline pilot and current corporat jet pilot, I can now afford to buy a home on the Island, and find that the stinking bureaucrats, who have been working for decades to destroy this country, are firmly ensconsed on Mackinac Island, and screwing with the best that entrepreneurship has to offer in this country.
