    Plus you have a TT and watch racing on TV!! My kinda guy!! And what a lovely pup you have! You like guns and love our country !! I'll stop gushing now, welcome to another magical place on the planet...PACF!! Craig

    Heh...Heh.., My folks cabin was ' On the Bay' near Torch Lake Village. My dad bought a 100' frontage lot around 1960 for $800.00 !!! They made out pretty well when they sold it to move near us in Florida! The cabin was nice, but by then it was surrounded by multi million dollar shacks. I spent a lot of time shooting pool up at Eastport, & what was it ? Brownwood? I still like Elk Rapids......, Kewadin... Ahhhh Gods country ( And medical herbs too) But just sucks in a wheelchair for about nine months a year.
    Interlochen was my last home up there.
    Now day's when I hear 'Torch Lake' I just think of Michael Moore ..................

    Oh..Oh.. I was the first freshman in history to be the captain of the debate team there & was planning to be the first Governor of the U.P. ! After I led the succession!
    Must have had some good shit back then.....................

    Errm... Ey Vatos!!!!
    Welcome to Phoenix, Brad! Yeah I remember Charley too... and Frances.. and Wilma LOL. That was right around the time we bit the bullet and moved to Sarasota due to HQ's moving, but I tell ya... somebody was trying to tell us something when Charley cut our house hunting leave short. A year was enough, and we moved back here to VA.

    Yep, you'll fit right in here... We're small, but tight..

    Not at all! Marla broke her neck in 74 . I moved 'North' in 75. One of her older sisters was my favorite 'herbist'. So we knew each other for awhile before getting married in 86 right after she got her degree ( Magna cum laude I'll add). Id been crapped on by enough women by then that I thought HEY this could work for both of us. Get her out of her parents house & have a wife with little worry of her cattin around. And it's been wonderful................
    She taught grades 9 - 12, EMH students until her spinal fracture started to deteriorate ( along with my back). So we were already retired when the Hurricane wiped us out both physically & financially. That's why we are here VERY low cost of living. We sold our small house in a small sub for enough to buy our 20 acre farm with house, 3 barns and a couple ponds. Total taxes around $300.00 a year !!
    All 8 of my vehicles are also paid off. so.....pretty sweet deal.

    We were at Punta Gorda. Ground zero. 15 minutes to prepare. ( Was supposed to go up coast to Tampa & took hard right at Boca Grande). Then Ivan, Gene, Francis over next six weeks.....................We had about the only house still standing in our sub. We were stuck in house for two weeks before crews found us..........UGHHHHHH.....
    Wife could not leave Florida fast enough!! Her words were something like " Fuck this shit"!!

    Yep Brownwood! Spent many times there, how about Schuss Mountain/Shanty Creek, remember them? For those who don't know, Torch is one of the most beautiful lakes on planet Earth...Period! 19 miles long, 1.5 miles wide and up to 350 feet deep of crystal clear, spring fed water that changes colors as you look at it...the Carribean of the north Gramps had a 1962 21' Century Resorter powered by a '62 460cid Ford NASCAR engine smuggled out of Dearborn by some of his croonies fastest boat on the lake for many years. I have pics somewhere, here's one from the net of a CC on Torch, the water really looks like that...

    Always learning!
    Schuss Mountain...takes me back Craig. 1st wife's father was an original investor. Spent many weekends up there (when times were good) '76-'80. Loved the place. Maybe we ran into each other and didn't even know it!
