@tule peak timber  cities to look at to fly into would be Detroit, flint, grajd rapids or Lansing.  All 2 or 3 hour drive south of us.  Towns to stay in would be Mt. Pleasant, Clare to the south, and Houghton lake to the north. there are a couple places in Harrison. The closest to us is the carriage house inn. About 1/2 mile.

I believe I flew into Saginaw a few years ago.  A bit closer and had better connecting time for me.  Slight layover in Detroit.  Stayed in Clare.

I seriously wish the wife's family reunion had been just a week later, then we could've made it to the roast this year.
