    The UP!!!!  Just hop on 75 North and haul ass!  As soon as you cross The Bridge, you'll feel a lot better.

      I'm afraid I've been a troll all my life (in the lower penninsula sense, not the freeper sense), but I was always taught by my parents that life gets better north of the 45th parallel. Alpena and northward has some of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen.

      Of course, I live right on the 42nd parallel right now. Bit of a bummer. Republican farm country down here.

        I just took off for the UP.  Bummed around, did a lot of exploring, and just lived day-to-day.  Had the time of my life!  (Even picked up the accent--realized that when I came back!)  Regret coming back downstate, but there were other reasons for doing so.  Desperately want to go return for a visit in the UP.  But I know myself too well!  If I do, I won't come back!
