This time around it will be pretty much whatever is there and good eating, on the coasts things like snapper and flounder and some shrimping and crabbing, fly fishing out West in the mountains, in Michigan I want to go for walleye as I hear they are good eating, and things like catfish, crappie and bass in the South.
Was out there from 78'to 91' Miss the ocean and the mountains but not the hoardes of people. Used to hunt Quail in the foothills that are now covered with homes. What a shame they call progress
Well I tend to agree about the unions, what they did to F and GM was really bad, though senior management at GM bears a lot of the blame too.
But what I do see is that the cost of living in Michigan is still reasonable, which is a plus for any businesses that want to move there. With the auto industry improving some, and some new areas like maybe microwind or midscale wind, NGVs for fleet cars which could be made in side factories of existing plants, and whatever else comes out of a new economy this time, they may be postioned well so long as the unions don´t get too greedy and as long as they don´t meddle with management decisions. The latter really got them over at GM, it took them days and unions saying they needed three workers just to fix a simple machine on the line, the unions had gotten to meddling so bad over there.
There are still good steal workers there, once they figure out how to clean up any legacy mess some of those empty factories might be filled again with different things.
Hey, I am taking a long trip and after looking into it I plan on visiting the state and doing some fishing and the like, outside of Detroit and a few other blighted cities it sounds like a nice place to visit or live, and even Detroit might end up turning the worst of the abandoned areas back to farms.
Hey, I like California too and will be visiting there too, but that RE bubble they had makes me very wary of investing in any banks there.
It could take 5 years for SE Michigan to recover. The Michigan auto/manufacturing sector will never be what it was. High paying union jobs from Saginaw to Toledo are gone forever. Good for the auto companies and the US as a whole but will be hard on SE Michigan. Look at the bright side there is always tourism........LOL Just ask Jenny
