Then, in the summer we'd take 123 through Ozark and up to 28, but that was always a "LONG TRIP" through the Seney Stretch.... We never tried that route in the winter and stayed on US2 along the "banana belt" to Escanaba and up 35 to Gwinn. Less snow that way. On occasion along US28 along Lake Superior from Newberry to Munising and then from Munising into Marquette, there would be 10' of snow on the shoulders and 1-2 feet of fresh powder on the road. Even following the snow plow was never a guarantee of "easy driving".

Enjoy your trip, that part of the UP is always nice in August/September. Safe travels.
Gonna be resting next Tuesday early evening at the Gaylord Walmart off 75. If your in the heighborhood, stop by for a chat...

We live 13 miles north of Gwinn near the"Crossroads" they have a real good pasty. Our family has been here forever. Well at least since the 1870s.
Won't be traveling south for the winters for a few more years.
It is hard to go very far when the weather is nice, we have so much to see right here and the people are the best. I hope you enjoy the great UP and the rest of Michigan.

Ross,

We were stationed at KI Sawyer in the late 60's and again in the 70's and 80's. My DW's family are some of the "settlers" in Marquette. One of her uncles was the post master there and several of her aunts and uncles lived throughout the area. One of them owned the old Finn Sauna that used to be on the corner of S Division and E Furnace. Names like Jujentienen, LaPointe, Brown and Warsheivski. Yeah, I know LOL

I went to my first "duck races" at the Crossroads bar in 1968. Darnedest thing I'd ever seen. We bought a house in the subdivision just north of the crossroads and lived there for about 5 years. It was almost at the back door of Cliff's Ridge.

Great community, great people and great times around that area. We still have a camp on Lake Kawbawgam, but seldom get a chance to get up there to enjoy it.
