    Grew up in Ann Arbor in the 60s and 70s. Nice place to grow up. I used to love to be able to skate and play hockey on the frozen Huron river as a kid. Seems like a lifetime ago now. I guess it was. I haven't been back in almost 15 years. Would love to go visit.

    I'd have to say the same, pointing in the other direction. I used to live above the pharmacy across the street from the Chevy dealer. Lots of folks came to the south side to hang out at the bars, and I think that's why I never saw a fight in one.

    Say what you will about Kid Rock...He is passionate about music.

    Anyway, do you fine folks ever meet up and have jam sessions?

    Holland does have a bluegrass jam session once a month, but try as I may, I haven't been able to make one.

    Not a bad idea though; I do have some connections in the music scenes in both Grand Rapids and Holland (and points in between)...how much effort is worth putting into something like this?

    I have lived in Phoenix for 20 years but MI is where I'm from; Garden City, Romulus, Ypsilanti but mostly Northville. I'm up for a jam when I go back to visit Mom and G'ma.

    Born and raised in the Motor City. when I was 18 (1970) I said I would never spend another winter in Michigan... I wound up in Minneapolis :eek:, stayed there about 6 months (long enough to find a job to pay for the '61 Les Paul Custom I purchased). Moved back to Michigan and have never been tempted to leave again! I been living in Lansing since '83 after living up north for a couple of years. Michigan just feels like home.

    I would honestly love one, but I couldn't compile a worth while trade.

    On that note, does anyone have one of those P-90 equipped Les Paul specials that GC used to sell? I'd love to trade for one of those...

    I'm Pennsylvanian, originally.

    Now I live right on Michigan's southern border. All our vacations go north rather than south. I love it. The lakeshore was a revelation, and the whole southwestern corner is a fruit-basket of orchards, vineyards, etc. Three Oaks is a cool little town with a great art-house theatre. South Haven is where we typically plop down for a week in the summer.

    I'd like to find a piece of property on a Class A trout stream and build a cabin.

    Michigan is great.
