Miles and Miles

Written By: Gary on October 8, 2005 3 Comments

Michigan trip october 2005So I drove 695.9 miles round trip for my travels up north. I’m a really slow traveler though, I stop every so often to shop/look/snack. The 280 mile trip up there took me about 350 miles and 28 hours to do it. Like I said I really like to take my time. You can see on the map (click to enlarge) my zig-zaggedy path (in red on the map). I went Dearborn to Sterling Heights (stopped to say HI to my Mom at work), to Troy (the Apple Store at the Somerset Collection), to Birch Run (the outlet mall) to a hotel near Cadilliac, then to Frankfort (furt?) to bicycle and shop at Gwen Frostic’s then up to Leeland and visit at Jim & Karen’s in Lake Leelanau for a few days. On the way back I went to Traverse City to bike and eat lunch, Mt. Pleasant to have dinner with Dawn and April, East Lansing for Cookie Dough Ice Cream and then back home. Lot’s of other little stops to shop and eat and we ran around a little while I was up there (that might be another post or two).


The weather was gorgeous the whole time I was there, I rode most of the trip with the top down on my car and it was an excellent ride. Night time was the only time it was too cool without a jacket, so I stopped driving (that’s when I stopped for the night). It was a great week to take a some days off to relax! Then I was at work for a nice short week of just Thursday and Friday (long days, but they went quick).

    I love going up north but haven’t been in a couple of years. Usually in Traverse City I stay at the Bayshore Resort. Have the trees changed colors yet? Everytime I see that part of the state in the fall, I always say some day I’m going to move up there :)

    VOXUL…yes, we have a Wyoming Michigan. We also have a St. Louis Michigan and a Hell Michigan (some people think it’s Detroit but really we also have a different kind of Hell besides that one) :)
