[orange]It has been a LONG week for us Krazies! We started last week Weds (the 3rd) on the east side of MI picking up the counties from Bay county all the way to the Soo Locks in the UP. We spent the night there, saw the Locks, then continued on to get the Upper portion of the UP counties before grabbing another hotel for the night (and an FTF on and Earthcache, Virtuals and many memories). On Friday, we got the remaining UP counties (made a few more memories while grabbing some cool caches again) and stopped in Escanaba to visit my cousin, place our own Wherigo (the First one in the UP of MI! (visit link) and to attend the MIGO Fall Fun Day Event. We spent Saturday night in Green Bay and hit the Wherigo road running! We eventually made it to Governor Dodge State Park and we were amazed at the sites we saw there.
Since it was closing in on dark fast, we left and headed over here because I really wanted to stop here. I just couldn't imagine the damage. You see, we live in West Michigan on the Lake. The most damage we have gotten is from straight line winds, I have never actually seen tornado damage in person - and for that I am very grateful. My heart goes out to those who were lost and I stand in amazement of what the town has gone through and is still going strong. After doing this virtual and honoring those your town lost, we ended up eating some dinner in Mount Horeb (Great Scott pizza is good), we stayed in West Bend for the last night of our trip. Tomorrow will be down to Chicago for some Letterboxes, grab a mystery that will fill in our fizzy grid - for the 2nd time!- and finally home to Grand Haven, MI! Yeah, 2,200 total miles was enough for us for a few months! Thank you for the virtual, and may God bless you all[/orange]
