16. I think you can't see the forest for the the trees
I've only met friendly people in the U.P. The motel keepers love me. The shop and restaurant owners love me. I'm sure it's me and not my money, but NOBODY has EVER been anything less than friendly to me in the U.P. and I've gone up there at least 40 times in my life. I think my statistical sample is much more accurate than yours. And, I've been just about everywhere up there, even places that nobody else goes. I've been to the Porkies, the Soo and everywhere in between, and St. Ignace to Menominee and everywhere in between there too. You just had rotten luck. Better luck next time.
