LOL. My inlaws live in Grand Rapids. They are forever trying to get us to move out there. I tell them I am really used to and love living in a remote area. The wife'* Dad tell'* me. "You want remote, move out here up to the UP. They got all kinds of loneliness going on, especially in the winter."

My godfather lives in the UP. Runs a snowmobile lodge, and fishes any day of the year. Cold weather just means you have to work a little harder to get at the fish.
