    Congratulations.

    I grew up in Presque Isle County during the same time period. I get it.

    Best wishes for many happy years ahead.

    My story is a little different. But after watch the movie My Side of the Mountain I decided I wanted to live in the woods. It took 57 years but finally did it. Hope you enjoy it . Congrats.

    Same deal i'm in .I want to retire to the cabin in the UP but wife says she won't .I would never push her to do it as it would have to be a mutual decision.

    I'm very fortunate to have a wife who is completely on board with saying goodbye to city life.

    Congratulations. I am definitely jealous as well. Make sure you get out and walk a ton every day. That will help the blood pressure even more!

    Congrats to you and yours on the move. Your wife had a job where working from home permanently was possible. We are seeing a whole lot of this happening Up North this year. And the RE market is crazy HOT because of it. Lucky you found a place to buy this fall. It was meant to be.......

    Congrats!

    We have a place north of Cadillac we could retire to in the next few years. Problem for us is the kids and grandkids are all in the Detroit area.

    I could live with that, but not my wife. She has to be near the kids....

    It's a different life for sure. Once this area(Petoskey) is out of the completely insane tourist season which was the worst I've ever seen this year it turns into every other northern Michigan area.
    I've chilled out except for driving which I really try to work on. It's been 21/2 years and haven't been back downstate since.

    Yes, but like most every where, with limited hours and capacity.
