I spent half of my youth in Michigan. Michiganders have a strange accent, especially up north in the U.P. (Upper Peninsula). Yoopers sound a lot like people from Ontario. You here a lot of, eh’s? Plus the lovely sing-song influence of Finnish and French.
I was up in the U.P. a couple of years ago to shoot the Mackinac Bridge for an engineering client. Took my Trusty Alpa 12 Max along and the now-retired Aptus 75 back. I found this old school close to the village of Rudyard.
