    This thread will be uninteresting to most. but those of you who know Michigan and are on in age like myself might remember this place. I have a ton of mem ories that I would like to share with anyone that remembers Peterson's Bar on Thunder Lake. Right on county road 437.

    I know where Thunder Lake is and the road but because I was never in very many bars I don't remember exactly where this is located.

    Heading North on 437 over the Murphy Creek, go past camp 7 road (that is where the National Guard jet crashed) another few miles or so and there was Petersons.
    It sold Shell gas, Next stop north on 437 was Steuben.

    In Stuben back in the late 60's Mott had a old car yard full of vintage cars and trucks. Many were in restorable condition. Sometime in the mid 70's someone bought him out and took the whole shootiin match somewhere.

    I was stationed in St Ignace for a few years and hope to get stationed in the Sault for my final tour. The wife and I loved it there.

    From the movie Funny Farm -

    Let me have a try.

    Pardon me, sir.

    Could you give us some assistance, please? Yeah. Glad to help.

    We're looking for Dog Creek Road.

    That would be near the town of Redbud.

    If I was going to Dog Creek Road, I sure as hell wouldn't start from here.

    But supposing you had to?

    Well, then I'd swing around and go back the way you came.

    But this time, turn right where the old Hollenshed barn used to be.

    Then about five miles before the road dead-ends, veer left...

    ...and follow the railroad tracks straight into a town called Beaver Mills.

    Or you could take the bridge at the fork in the road and save yourself a heap of time.

    But I wouldn't go that way if I were you.

    This ain't a bridge.

    It's termites holding hands. We're going over it.

    Not me. I wouldn't go over this thing on a skateboard.

    We're going over it. Have faith in the craftsmanship of our forefathers.

    Your forefathers, not my forefathers.

    Forgot the mention the CCC Camps that planted literally thousands of Red Pine along that county road. There are a few stands still there that were not cut, but most matured and went to the mills.
