Has anybody ever tried to hitch the UP? In Traverse City now thinking of it. Busker though and I hear there aren't many prospects up there. But damn it seems like a can't miss op.

Yeah, it's a pretty decent hitch, St Ignace is a decent small town just across the bridge. Avoid Escanaba like the plague, that place sucks.
Thanks for the response. I think I am going to try it. I heard Marquette was pretty sweet and hell nature is seeming pretty grand.

I am a musician from the U.P., and live about two hours north of Marquette. I don't know exactly how or where you would expect to busk up here, but you would be much better off scheduling shows to pay your way up. Local bands book stuff up here, in exchange for help with shows below the bridge. Busking is not practical here, and more likely to get you trouble with police or businesses than anything.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
