    Can you guys offer any tips for the best/cheapest route into Michigan when coming from Europe? If you travel via NYC, who do you fly with to Michigan?

    Northwest uses Detroit Metro (DTW) as a hub airport. From their you are a 3.5 to 4 hour car ride to Bill's (I've not been, but I know the area). It might be advisable to have worked out transportation once you arrive. Maybe we can get locals who are coming to provide transit to Bill's. Under no condition should you rely upon bus service.

    I would think he should transfer to a commuter airline at Detroit and fly up to Pelston, Michigan. He could rent a car there and be, ten miles from Bill’s place, or 20 miles or so from Harbor Springs. I would not recommend the drive from Detroit to Harbor Springs as it is mostly four lane highway and not representative of the beauty of Michigan off the highways.

    My parents had a cottage on Burt Lake to the east of Harbor Sprngs in the 1950s as did Bill’s parents. We came up 400 miles from Akron, Ohio. The highway is just a fast method to get up north through the center of the state to then enjoy the beautiful scenery on the coast area.

    Hi Fintan! Happy to hear you're interested. The absolute best way to get here is to fly into the Pelston regional airport that is only a few miles from here. They are serviced by Northwest Airlines and have several flights connecting to Detroit and Minneapolis. My advice would be to fly directly to Detroit (DTW) and change over on a plane to Pelston (PEL). Someone then need only drive a few miles to meet you.

    PS... Oops... John beat me to it while I was writing! Thanks John!

    I'll be there for sure... maybe I'll do the tenting thing this year. (I missed out on too much last year driving back and forth)

    Cheers,
    Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
