When it comes down to it, everything I know came from Michigan. And hey, that good ol’ state has seen its ups and downs, but dammit, it’s not going anywhere. Some awesome folks just created a new site, www.mittenstretcher.com where they’re helping to spread the greatest news about Michigan to displaced Michiganders around the world.

I’m happy to be guest blogging from time to time, so go check out my rambling, or some of the other awesome articles about beer, vodka, bicycles and other awesome stuff.
