De Tour Village, U.P. Michigan

Where else is there that someone cuts the front off an old Great Lakes freighter and makes a summer home out of it?

If it's summer, I head out to Hinton, hit some friends up and go out in the boonies for a few days.

Jasper is beautiful:


If it's winter, go to the fortress of solitude (my room), throw on some headphones and get lost for a few hours drawing or writing.

Cricket, my favorite getaway close by is South llano state park. If you've never been there you should give it a try. An easy drive from your neck of the woods.
