We are in Owosso, spend summer week-ends in Gladwin and would love to move somewhere where it is warmer at the moment!

Just found this,not sure really how I missed it.

I'm in Webberville,if you can find it on a map it's about 20 miles or so south east of Lansing....

Thought since I found this,I'd bump it back up for those new inquiries about MI folks.

I'm from southwest Michigan, between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. We own and operate a 180 acre family farm that has been in my husbands family for about 75 years.

Thumbs up Town Hall Meeting in SE Michigan!

Stand Up For Your Rights!

The time is now…to stand up for your individual rights before they become… history.
Remember, We The People have individual rights (not collective privileges). Here’s an opportunity to learn how you can be a part of American history to restore our great constitutional republic.

 We are pleased to have Skip Coryell, founder of the upcoming Second Amendment March, come to the WWCCA to present a brief history of our second amendment and how we, as individuals, can and must help to ensure that our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

You are invited and encouraged to attend an important “town hall” meeting to listen and learn how you can be an effective voice toward preserving your natural human right to keep and bear arms.

 What: Town Hall Meeting for the Second Amendment with Skip Coryell, founder of the Second Amendment March (in Washington D.C. and nationwide on April 19, 2010)

 When: Wednesday, August 5th, 2009 from 7:30pm to 8:30pm

 Where: WWCCA Clubhouse, 6700 Napier Road, Plymouth, MI 48170

 Who: OPEN to all WWCCA membership, the general public and all media

Please spread the word!!

For more information on the Second Amendment March, go to www.secondamendmentmarch.com.

For more information regarding Western Wayne County Conservation Association (WWCCA), go to www.wwcca.com or call (734) 453-9843

Or- post inquiries to me here....thanks.

I'm just west of Kalamazoo and am missing winter terribly. My livestock are trying to get their winter coats off and I'm dreading the mosquito population we'll have this summer.
I see this post is fairly old and not sure who lives where anymore but if anyone is close by, fancy getting together for lunch and yak about our homesteads?

I think I am the only person that posts here and lives in Monroe.

I be the mosquitos are going to be unfathomable. The pond behind my house has not only crested it's banks (something it hasn't done in the 32 years I have been alive) but has not froze. I hope the spider population booms this year!!!

Part-timer from North of Escanaba here. Beautiful country. Looking forward to trying to get something to grow in the darned sand.

Originally from downstate (St. Clair Shores), in my mid-20's lived in the Lansing area, and now residing between Escanaba and Marquette. I took me close to 5 years to find this place as the real estate agent brought me to everything he wanted, not what I had given him descriptions of. I've been up here for 6 years now and had purchased the place 9 years ago. I traveled every weekend for close to 2 years from Lansing to the U.P. trying to get the home situated.

Thank you for responding.
What are you looking for? I can check around for you. I'm in the center of the U.P. - between Escanaba and Marquette. Are you looking at "rent to buy"? How much acreage? Is there a particular area you're looking at? If you give me some ideas, I can put the word out.

I just had a friend purchase 20 acres with a home and several outbuildings. She had chickens, cats, dogs, and two goats. She moved from downstate up here last March. Our neighbor has a friend who plans on moving up here as well. There are a lot of self-sufficient people that reside in the U.P.

Job-wise, the worst unemployment in the U.P. is in the Baraga area. Pay is low here. Working at the mines, hospital or universities are the higher paying jobs here.

If you want to email me privately, I have two emails (use debi.beeuwsaert@yahoo.com).

I grew up in the UP, in the small town of Wallace, south of Stephenson and north of Menominee, and most of my family is still in the Upper Peninsula, but I haven't lived there since I was eighteen or so. I've been in Maine for the past twelve years.

Default Lakeshore area

Moved here last December to the Grant area. Last winter was mild, not so much this year!! We have had 30+ inches of snow in December alone.

Office is in Grand Rapids, but as a home care nurse, my territory currently is north of 96 to south of 10 and west of 37. Lots of lake effect!!!

Pretty country though, and the folks here are very nice...
