Are you familiar with the Scout Service Camp program? There is a publication about it sold in the Sutler's store in the Fort.
We are trained as Fort Mackinac guides and know the island history, directions for tourists etc.
I will watch the posts and be of service if anyone has questions.
I'll be on the Island for a short time on July 3. My first book is out and I'll be signing books from 2:00 till 4:00 at the Island Bookstore. It's a mystery book for kids from 9-12--but I think all kids, no matter what their age, will love it. :-) It's called the Mystery of the Copper Turtle.
Welcome to Michigan and Mackinac Island! I hope you had a great chicken dinner in Frankenmouth. I love the home made german noodles. We just got back into the states at Niagra Falls and on to Hartford Conn. for a family wedding on Saturday. Leave for a week long cruise up to the Maritimes so... no meeting of the dogs this trip but we will be looking for you all in the fall for sure.
We leave on Saturday, will stay in Atlanta that night with son, then leave for Michigan on Sunday. Hope to be on the island by noon on Monday to open the condo. Two other families with condos in our building are coming in over the next week or two, and will be there all summer. We can't wait!
We had to wait until we both retired. We have a son and daughter-in-law in Atlanta, another son who lives in China, and a daughter and her family in Arkansas who all come up every summer. They love it!

Thanks Mike but, I do not live on the Island but rather on Lake Michigan looking at the Island. I do love working on the island ,in the early morning ,walking through town before it wakes,visiting with wonderful people from all over the world.
Thanks for finding me on twitter Mike. I have loved the Island my whole life and now I live the dream of looking at it out most of our windows from Mackinaw City. I have also been blessed with a job that often brings me to the islandin the early morning hours.
My husband and I are going to be visiting St. Ignace next year in May. We are coming up to meet my birth family that I just found. Next year in April will be our 10 year wedding anniversary and we were wanting to do a vow renewal on Mac Island but…Continue
As I continue to do my homework, I am finding more and more things to see and do on the island. I think we will need more than a week!! Today, I stumbled across The Silver Birches. Can anyone tell me more about this? Thanks!
There appears to be some updates and changes being done to this web site. Does any one know if the live feeds are back up? I have tried my own computer and a work computer, it appears that the site wants to run an add on program that gets blocked.…Continue
