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!

We aren't THAT desperate!

The dreaded phone rings…is it another cancellation? Someone wanting a cabin for snowmobile season? A wrong number??

DAN ANSWERS THE PHONE!!! “Clementz’s Northcountry Campground & Cabins. May I help you?”

OTHER END: “Do you allow drinking in your park?”

DAN: “We allow drinking but we are NOT a party park.”

OTHER END: “Do you have tent sites away from everyone else?”

Dan tries to describe how the campground is laid out and how large the tent sites are, and even though the sites are next to each other because they ARE so big, you don’t really notice your camping neighbor.

OTHER END: "Is their a quiet time?"

DAN "Yes, it is 10 p.m."

OTHER END: "Is it really enforced?"

DAN: "You bet it is."

OTHER END: “We like to be away from everyone so we don’t disturb anyone.”

DAN: (By now the red flags have gone up and his antenna are twitching) “Then I suggest you go to a state forest campground”.

OTHER END: “You don’t want the business? We thought campers were canceling!”

DAN “It sounds like you would be better off at a campsite out in the middle of the woods where you are less likely to cause your neighbor a disturbance.”

OTHER END: “Well aren’t you a rude !@#@!!” And they hung up!

AT least it wasn’t a cancellation! HA~!

    Cathy, do you suppose this phone call was from the same person who has been making nasty posts on your guest book? People like that ya don't need anyway! And it sounds like Dan already knows that!

    Hope things turn around for you guys. You have a very nice campground. We've stayed with yas before.

  2. Ted, I really don't think so but ya never know!

    Come back and see us again sometime!
