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!

  1. Cathy, Have you thought of listing the RV on Craigslist? We have had great luck selling on it.

  2. Hi Cathy, Sorry I've been MIA lately-- But i've been catching up on your adventures.

    Sooooo sorry about your knee injury. I hope that's on the mend soon... cuz I think you'll need to be kicking some butt over the no smoking policy. I'm guessing you'll have folks that try to push the limits on that one. It was a long slow battle in CA but eventually being "smoke free" was accomplished.

    It's hard to imagine that you open the campgrounds again next month! That really want fast.

    Hang in there and take care of yourself.

  3. Brenda, thanks for the heads up on Craigs List! I never would have thought of it!

    Joanna, GOOD to hear from ya! I'm finally back to being able to sit at the desk for longer periods of time so I'm also doing some catching up! And yep, I bet there will be some butt kicking (was there a pun intended there?? Cigarette BUTT??) over the no smoking thing.
