Have been as close to M22 as Traverse City. Maybe will take a drive up through there this spring.

Bizzy - highly recommended, especially in the fall. Some day we hope to take SS Badger from Manitowoc to Ludington, and then wend our way north on 22. Nice brewpub in Ludington and wineries up Traverse City way. And milk for you.
