I live near Traverse City currently, welcome to the area.

A word of warning though, there are lots of extremely conservative folks up here, lots of prejudice. Traverse City in general is fairly progressive and welcoming to new faces and alternative lifestyles. The surrounding smaller towns, can be a different story.

I’m not mentioning this to scare or discourage you. This area has a lot to offer and there are many good people around here too.

Take care and good luck.

Wow, lots of hostility from Northern Michigan! You see the irony here don’t you?

The truth is over the course of the last thirty years I’ve lived all over the country. If you slow down and reread my post you’ll notice that i said TC is welcoming and for the most part people in the surrounding areas are great. But I have personally run into some unsavory, back woods, nazi scum bags up here. I felt like a word of warning was warranted. Not sure why that offends you so much, but it seems like your problem not mine.

Aw I have a friend or 2 in Detroit i was gonna try to connect you with. Queer Solidarity! Just don't feel afraid to skip town if somewhere doesn't feel right, there's lots of rad places to stick around (and yes, many more garbage places to get stuck in). But yah, stay active on here and there's lots of good people who are happy to help a fellow drifter ^.^

I deleted the comment because maybe I did go too far. Please don't forgive me. I'm just sick of people who talk like Traverse City is some progressive oasis. The yuppies and hipsters in this town have made me overly sensitive to pretentiousness. This place is not as special as people - especially the locals from the downtown neighborhoods where I spent ten years of my childhood - make it out to be. I'll accept douchebaggery from people living in GR but not this little circle jerk up north.

If I lived in TC I’d probably be unhappy too.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
