About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

I don’t have any current info for you and the last time I checked was about 12:30 p.m. I have been busy doing a TV interview with Channel 9 & 10 News (Cadillac, Traverse City, and Petoskey).

This will air on the 6:00 p.m. evening news (CBS station). It will also be on their website at http://www.9and10news.com/ as a video.

I forget to smile when I am nervous, so please don’t think I’m a grumpy old Yooper woman!

I will check for an update again around 3 p.m. and see if there is anything new to report. Stay tuned!

    Cathy - I thought your interview (saw it on Traverse city news program) went fine. With what you and your husband are dealing with, I thought it was an excellant interview.

  2. Cathie,
    Thanks for your comments. I continue to be amazed at the misinformation out there. I JUST had another cancellation for next week because they'd been told you can't even get to the Falls! I did my best to set them straight but the come back was "What else would you say? You want the business!" So in other words, I'm a liar. I'm gonna unwind a bit here because I AM getting tired of trying to "convert" people's line of thought and it is getting to the point I don't even want to answer the phone. Pardon me while I step outside and find my better attitude again....
