Oh, I'd certainly rather had is 4000T... but that was "over his (and his
wife's) dead bodies; etc...

If I actually find more than these two, I'll keep you in mind.

Ah, but remember: Michigan is 394 miles high, and damn near as wide!!!
Detroit, Ann Arbor, Flint, Saginaw... sure, but the northernmost exit to
Bay City is 230 Miles away. From Bay City to Sault Ste. Marie you have:

Farmland, Gaylord, Farmland, the Mackinac Bridge, Farmland, the Sault.

I have nothing against farmers (spent 4 years in the FFA myself)... but not
many farmers I know have Vaxen at their garage sales... (Now, if you need a
*hay baler...* ;-)))

Heading straight west from the Sault, you have:

the Sault, Hiawatha National Forest, Marquette, even less, a whole bunch of
Wisconsin that looked just like Michigan, then Duluth, Minnesota.

Otherwise, Green Bay / Bay City are roughly 4 hours away each... that's the
best I can do.

Sillycon Valley this ain't...

(BTW, for you history buffs, Sault Ste. Marie is the 3rd oldest city in the
USA... founded in 1668.)

Yes, again I ramble...
