I'm in. But only if he can have the jackalope as our mascot.
Why the jackalope? That's not even a specifically Michiganian thing. First sightings were in Wyoming, and now those critters can be found just about everwhere from coast to coast, which, in this case, doesn't mean between Port Huron and Muskegon.
By the way I wanted to thank some people for their posts but I can't seem to figure out how to do it, maybe because I don't have enough posts on the forum and I'm a newbie? anyways, thanks for all the nice replies I never expected so many!
Looks like we stirred up quite a bit indeed, and I'm sure the hard core of us can handle a few non-Michiganders .
Unfortunately you can't count on me. That's not because I'm way too old for this bunch of mostly young folks (I bet I can still outrun most of you), it's just because I'm too far away. Ok, in the USA, my AOH took me on trips of up to five hours (one way) to visit cousins of whom we didn't even know if they were at home. But here you just don't travel 60 miles and back for a glass or two of beer or wine and a nice chat.
However, if you ever decide to found some kind of an Up-Northerners-on-EF or 'Merikins-in-St.-Gallen group, please keep me posted.
