Mason County, speficially Ludington, is one of my favorite Michigan spots. Who can ever forget a stop at the "House of Flavors" for a really large milk shake?

"Erected by the grateful people of Mason County in memory of these our heroes, who gave their lives for our country and in honor of our soldiers and sailors in the World War
Unveiled May 30, 1926"
This 80 year old monument is in need of refurbishment. It is very difficult to discern the names of "Our Heroes" and without some attention, they will be lost - known only to the ardent historians of this county. I've transcribed the tablet;

Your assistance is needed

Can you offer a place to pitch my tent? One of the largest expenses of this tour is camping and lodging fees. I usually arrive at my campsite just before dusk and depart prior to 8:30 AM. Click on the "Contact" menu option to send me a message.
