It's been a long winter. Your boss is pushing you. Hard. And you're not getting any younger.

How many times have you said, "Someday, I'm going to go off like that guy in 'Office Space' and walk! And I'll buy a bed & breakfast or a lodge, up in the U.P."

Here's your chance, bucko.

According to, Keweenaw County is selling their Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, near Copper Harbor. (They need better marketing to start. I never even knew this place existed - and I've been to Copper Harbor) The lodge has a main lodge, with a bar, dining rooms and a banquet center. On the grounds are tennis courts, a nine-hole golf course and 25 cabins. It will be auctioned off on the grounds of the lodge this July 26th. There's no minimum bid, but last year they tried to sell it for $1.5 million.

You're resourceful. You can make it work. I look forward to getting the family discount when I visit your new lodge, next summer.
