My mother lives on the east side of the state almost directly across from Traverse City. She lives about two blocks from Lake Huron. When I lived in Michigan, we lived in Ann Arbor--or just a little south and west of Ann Arbor.<quoted text>
How far up near the close to Travers City or down south? I used to go north of the bridge into UP all the time.
We lived in Traverse City for a year or so back in the early 80's. It was a nice town, but there weren't any really good jobs there back then.
