If you like hiking, do the Presque Isle falls loop. It starts out crossing a really cool swinging bridge, you’ll hike down one side of the Presque Isle River then cross back over to the side you started on and hike back. You get great views of several falls on the way and you’ll see some amazingly huge white pines.
In Ontonagon: If you want to go somewhere to enjoy a beer and a truly “unique U.P. experience”, go to Stubb’s Museum Bar.” It will be the weirdest, creepiest (decor)and cheapest bar experience of your life. And you can get local beers for way to cheap. If you go , you have to check out the “grotesques” in the glass cases at each end of the bar. Another really neat U.P. bar is in Rockland (15 minutes from Ontonagon, 30 from the entrance to the state park). It’s called Henry’s Never Inn. Such a neat place, and if the owner is in they’ll have great food specials, if not it’s typical bar food but good. We love to get the local experience so we go to these places at least once while we’re there on those nights it’s raining or we don’t want to cook over the campfire cause we’ve been hiking all day. They only take cash at Henry’s, we had to drive quite far to get an ATM after we had drinks and food, when we walked back in the bartender yelled, “I knew ‘yous’ would come back.”
You really can’t go wrong with any of the hikes there. We utilize this book constantly when we’re there. It’s super comprehensive regarding the trails to choose from, it may be available at the park headquarters, though I’m not sure.


I would also pick up this one for the waterfalls:


He gives great details about each waterfall, and the length/degree of difficulty to get to each one so you can prioritize and even map you’re route on the way there in order to check some of them out.

If you "stopped reading" at where I said "leftist," then you would have never made it to the part where I talked about the GOP. How are you going to let me catch you in a blatant lie within your first sentence, lol.

What I was referring to in that statement was the book called Who Really Cares which was written by a liberal who wanted to research which states, conservative or liberal, gave more to charitable organizations. Spoiler alert, to the liberal author's dismay, nearly all of the top 30 states that contributed to charity and the poor were conservative states. The author infers that, because liberal (leftist, really) states believe that the government should take care of everyone, they don't actually donate as much or contribute to charity. In other words, they are all talk but truly do not care about others. I thought it was worth mentioning because it's another phony aspect of leftists on how they pretend to be "compassionate to human life" yet give less to charity and want to murder unborn (and born) babies. You can read the book yourself here: https://www.amazon.com/Who-Really-Cares-Compassionate-Conservatism/dp/0465008232/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Who+Really+Cares&qid=1557952596&s=gateway&sr=8-1

You could visit the Miller Road Pedestrian Overpass where Henry Ford's hired security goons attacked striking workers. It was brutal and it shifted public opinion forcing Ford to sign a contract three years later:

Also a great book on the history of Henry Ford which includes a great portrait, in words, of the city of Detroit and the innovative drive towards industrialization that embodies Michigan and changed the world we live in:

Drive. There are so many things to see along the way. Get a few of those travel books (not the stuffy ones, the fun, interesting ones), and you'll have so much to do and see you may never make it back!

Corn mash, not rye.

51% corn minimal and aged for at least 2 yrs in fresh charred oak barrels.

Aged less? its not bourbon.

less corn? its not bourbon.

reuse barrels? its not bourbon.

Bourbon Empire is a fun read: https://www.amazon.com/Bourbon-Empire-Future-Americas-Whiskey/dp/014310814X?SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-osx-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=014310814X

Also, hunt down the book Michillaneous it's out of print and hard to find, but it's filled with awesome Michigan stories and folklore (like the Ada Witch)

I just found out about this a couple of weeks ago while reading Bill Bryson's new book One Summer: America 1927.

It really stood out to me because the media (at least the little I expose myself to) seems to make incidents like this seem like some new societal development. It was interesting to read about an it happening before many of the things the blame as causes were around.

Ninja edit: If you're wondering about the book, I recommend it. It was a really interesting read. Not Bryson's best work in my opinion, but I hold some of his other writing in very high regard.

I have THIS FIELD GUIDE. It's useful as long as the trees have leaves on them.

You can always use something like this.

My brother bought me something like that as a BBQ fire starter. Might have to try that as an ice melter.

Snopes? I never claimed ten thousand people died either.

This is how Snopes can say a claim is a mixture of truth and give fuzzy technicalities. They do this all the time especially when it involves any type of story that involves painting the government in a negative light. They have their own biases like anybody else, and sure as hell are not the arbiters of Truth.

Again, the government poisoned people intentionally because they knew people were drinking it. Read the source article yourself. Read carefully. They added MORE shit during prohibition intentionally, and that is the glaring difference. Snopes missed that important distinction.



Here is the book, well cited:

Campus Martius? Holy cow! Here's a snippet of what happened to this guy:
>     A tavern-keeper by trade, he had a habit of getting into the whiskey himself, to violent effect. One night at home, a sodden Simmons picked a fight with his wife Livana and killed her with a vicious blow to the abdomen. The main trouble in this noteworthy trial (pdf, [it's quite interesting]) was seating a jury not completely biased against him.
>     An estimated two thousand people turned up to watch him pay for his crime, and for their “comfort and entertainment” the authorities had “wooden grandstands erected on three sides of the scaffolding, uniformed militia to be deployed around the scaffolding as a guard of honor, a military band to serenade the crowd while it waited for the main event, and vendors to patrol the grounds hawking food, whiskey, and rum.”

Now I know what book I'll be getting next! Thanks for this.
