open road

is there anybody out there?

I've noticed it's been awfully quiet in here of late, though not for lack of trying.  I haven't posted any of my stories because I'd like to hear some of yours, and also because a lot of mine have happened along interstate highways, unfortunately.  Time is not usually on my side when I travel.

So, is there anyone who'd be willing to share a story of a memorable road experience?  Photos, narratives, anything.  Sky's the limit.  I'd just hate for this community to go quiet, especially given how quickly you all joined us here.

The End of the Road

This is a story about food eaten at the literal end of the road.

For Labor Day weekend in 2005, my husband and I decided to take a trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. For those of you not from Michigan, the U.P. is so different from the rest of Michigan it is akin to an entirely separate state. Indeed, many residents of the U.P. (aka "Yoopers") would like to secede from Michigan and form their own state called "Superior." But I digress.

Following the advice of a good friend of mine who is also a native Yooper, John and I traveled all the way to the very, very tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Past Copper Harbor, past Fort Wilkins State Park, past the end of the pavement, out beyond civilization to the end of the earth.
