Touring Michigan, Part Two

Mackinac Bridge Viewed From Fort Mackinac

Before leaving Sault Ste. Marie, we toured the Museum Ship Valley Camp. The Museum Ship Valley Camp was built in 1917 and retired in 1966. After 1966, the 550 foot long freighter was permanently docked on historic Water Street and transformed into a museum. The Valley Camp offers more than just a tour of her deck. Visitors can explore the wheelhouse, sleeping quarters, and her cargo hold which now...

Touring Michigan, Part One

Lake Superior, U.P, MI

The day before we were scheduled to leave Potawatami State Park, we got "busted" for running the generator, We got through the busy weekend with a full campground with no issues.

This is a quiet campground located in a back portion of the base. It's the kind of place we enjoy staying at. During our 3-day stay here, we visited the Ronald Reagan...

Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Site, ND

Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Museum

While visiting Malmstrom AFB, in Montana, I visited their on-base museum. Malmstrom AFB's mission is now only to maintain 150 Minuteman III missiles. When I first started in the US Air Force, my first assignment was to F.E. Warren AFB, whose only mission is also to maintain 150 Minuteman Missiles. I asked at the Malmstrom AFB base if there were any missile silos that were open for tours and I lear...
