Such a rare site here in the mitten.
I've read many references to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, but rarely the Lower Peninsula (the rest of the state), and never to the Lower Peninsula as the "mitten"... but sure enough, look at a map...
It's a good day when you learn something new, and a bonus when makes you smile.

Brian, My first supervisor out of college was from Michigan. I quickly learned some Michigan terms from him. I'm sure there are hundreds
Yooper, Upper Penninsula resident
Mitten Lower Penninsula resident and
Remote NE lower peninsula The Thumb. He had worked near Bad Axe Michigan once upon a time. Panhandles, boot heels, spits and
fingers, they all make me smile.

I forget our regional lingo is foreign to others. Reminds me of when our daughter went to school in Maryland and talked of vacationing in the UP. Her classmates had no clue where up was.

On our way back from a day trip to Hatchers Pass, heading west on the Glenn Highway saw our first Escape in Alaska, (other than ours). A Escape 15 pulled by a white SUV heading east by Peters Creek. Scott

Scott, Lori and a White Schnauzer named Fritz
I like bikes!

I just saw a 17' (possibly 15) with a high lift axle, west of Lloydminster on the Yellowhead. I was towing a Trillium at the time.

Back in Merryland from New York. Thanks for stopping by on the Interstate and for your technical advice re the 2/3-fill in the fresh water tank. Made a big difference. Love the Mustang. Cheers.
