Default Hello from West Michigan!

I thought I'd drop in and say hello from the frigid Lake Michigan shoreline.

I lived in GR for 12 years. We loved it there.

Many hometown friends went to college out there in your neck of the woods. Welcome aboard from Florida.

Went to Great Lakes Naval Training Station back in the 70's right on the shore of the lake and spent 2 winters there.
Don't think I will be going back anytime soon in the winter

Brutal is a word that falls short of doing the winter temps and wind any justice.

Did Boot in Orlando. Plenty hot and the CC knew what time the rain came thru
From there to Electrical Training at Great lakes was quite a difference.
