Love that area. Spent a summer there in forestry camp at MTU's Ford Forestry Center. Inland fishing there is an underutilized resource.

Ron I am in no way qualified for a job like this, but have to thank you for your endless efforts to help anyone on this board find something. I am in the stage of my life that I am applying to as many jobs as I can. It is a little intimidating because everything out there wants the world. I am simply going to be a college grad with a good work ethic.

I'm sure I will find a place, but it is really awesome that you post this stuff for the community. A great community I might add.
