    Porcupine State Park is one of the coolest state pens I’ve ever been to. Love it up there, that news makes me want to venture further into the Yoop as I’ve really never been that far east.

    Tangentially, Isle Royale shouldn’t be a Michigan National Park.

    IMO the Yoop gets better and wilder the more westward you go.

    I’ve never been and honestly don’t know the answer, but it’s a roadside for profit tourist attraction. The odds that they only home rescued bears and don’t buy cubs is low imo.

    Yeah after looking into it more, we're not going. Not the worst sanctuary/rescue type place I've looked at, but there's enough sketch to make me uneasy.

    Overnight lows of 73° and 77° are not great. Will be interesting to see how well my air conditioner keeps up with that amount of heat. Might be 80 degrees in my bedroom at midnight on Wednesday.

    It is still Spring this week. Spring weather in Michigan is a regular shitshow. From freezing cold to rain to blistering heat, Spring has it all! At least in Summer you expect it to be hot for stretches. For that reason I go Fall, Winter, Summer then Spring.

    But those first few warm weeks of Spring are so hype it outweighs the burdens of the fluctuations

    I can think of several things to do outdoors in 90 degree weather. I'm not spending any time outside when it's zero degrees.

    Summer way underrated itt. Avg high in the 80s? Yes please. Even in the extremes when it's 90+ you can still find great things to do outside involving shade and water. Plus, in Michigan you get the added benefit of absolutely perfect evening weather in July and August.

    Give me shorts and sandals all year round. Fall a close second. Winter is fun for like two weeks. Spring sucks balls until mid May.

    Anything that involves movement in 90 degrees has me sweating balls. Fuck that. Put on a jacket in zero degrees and I'm good. Of course, there's probably football or basketball on anyways.

    I don’t mind the cold, actually enjoy it. If it didn’t last so long, we’d make this our permanent home. I can’t handle how long winter hangs around. Southbound in September

    Detroit folks, coming up this weekend.

    I need restaurant recs for Downtown or adjacent + also a good Ann Arbor lunch spot unless that answer is just Zingermans. Will have a car.

    The difference for me is you actually can be outside doing something in 90 degree weather. I played golf Tuesday and will play today. Also, you can hop on a boat, take a dip on occasion, and be perfectly fine. Zero degrees means I’m snowboarding or doing something outside for not long at all.

    Not too mention the roads probably suck ass too with ice
