    Hillbilly Hen on here is in your area near Newaygo. Most are at Chickenstock in Lansing today, so I'm the only Michigander here now. The rest will probably welcome you tomorrow [​IMG]

    West Branch does have an awesome fairgrounds, don't they?

    I went through White Cloud a few years ago for a job interview in Hesperia. Didn't get the job [​IMG] I was sad because it was such a lovely area, rolling hills, National forest, a decent drive to Grand Rapids or Traverse City, cherries ... all we have here is pickling cukes and sugar beets. And dairy cows but people don't sell those in quart bags on the roadside [​IMG]
