Can some one interpret the following for me: “Your nature trail is beautiful, but it isn’t signed well where the trail is not at.” Hmmmm…..I know it IS signed well where the trail IS at, but signs for where it is NOT at?? I think this is the same person who should take this simple test to see if he can qualify for solo camping. Shine a flashlight into one ear. If the beam shines out the other ear, do not go into the woods alone….
And it seems our guests are having a streak of bad luck. I told you about the older gentleman and the curb, but I didn’t tell you that same night his car was brought back on a tow truck. Of course, it was a Friday night and raining hard. The problem had nothing to do with the curb incident but it was the following Tuesday before he could get the car repaired. Then just a couple of days ago, one of our cabin guests had their car towed back to Newberry. It just plain died on them in the parking lot at the Falls. They were able to get their car back the next night. Then yesterday some of our guests had been over to Seney Wildlife Refuge. On the way out of the refuge, a bear crossed in front of them so everyone was excited to have seen a bear in the wild. But by the time they got out on M-28 their excitement about the wild animals in these parts turned to disenchantment. A deer ran into their path and there wasn’t any way to avoid hitting it. The fellow managed to drive the truck back here, but the grill was gone and the radiator was leaking badly. Today a tow truck from Manistique arrived to haul his truck over to Manistique to a body shop that his insurance company recommended. I told him to be happy that it wasn’t a moose! He then told me that in Louisianna they have to worry about hitting mules. I told him I had no idea there were mule deer down there. He assured me there were not and that he was referring to MULES, as in a farm type creature! I wonder if they make a highway sign for MULE XING???
