Alpena and UP

This is just a quick post with no pics unfortunatly just to update. We are just north of Roger's City and a day's ride away from the Mackinaw Bridge. Currently we are staying with my Nancy and Fred, my aunt and uncle. They have an AMAZING(!!!!!!) place here on lake huron. We were only going to stay the night, but have decided to stay another day. We arrived tired, sweaty and aching to have a swim in lake huron, an amazing dinner, a dip in their hot tub, and a good night's rest in a very comfortable bed. Later today we are going to go hiking up Black Mountain and have a look at the Ontiake Falls. I know for a fact I spelled that wrong. hggggggggnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Their cat decided to add that last bit. The past couple of days we have been riding along highway 23 on the coast of Lake Huron, which i beautiful. We camped on the beach the night before we got here and fell asleep listening to the lapping of waves. It sounds all idyllic right now, however there are moments of serious pain as well. (8 hours on a saddle with my butt in flames!!!) Anyway. We head up north tomorrow and I am so excited about crossing the bridge. Ira's never seen it and I can't wait to get up north.

That's all for now. Pictures to follow.

Can the ladies use chamois butt'r?

I'm not enjoying reading about your adventures nearly as much as you are having them, but I'm enjoying nonetheless.

I'm anxiously awaiting the next post.
