My family tried to get myself and others to transport with them to MI years ago, as well as now I’m wondering why I held off for so long.
I was dead set on staying in the southwest despite what it was doing to our mental health.
The summers were downright angry with 110 degree heat! On top of that, there’s a lot of radiation in the groundwaters out there from all of the incessant nuclear bomb testing that the US Government undertook while in the Cold War. It’s not that you can’t find clean water in these areas, it’s just that you’re more likely to run into issues compared to a clean water state like MI. Swimming in a lake in MI for the first time was an amazing experience! There was little algae at the time as well as the water was crystal clear. I remember there being rocks on the bottom as well, which felt smooth at the bases of our feet. It didn’t take too much persuasion at this point to push myself and others into leaving the southwest to transport to MI permanently. I didn’t choose just any random locale in MI either, I went with Ann Arbor in Washtenaw County. Named for its gorgeous trees as well as vibrant naturalism, Ann Arbor is the gem of southern MI. The University of MI has its main campus downtown, with the university’s famous “Diag” being a hub as well as focal point of the entire city. Now that there is recreational cannabis in MI, I’m seeing up-to-date cannabis dispensaries opening all over Ann Arbor as well as the rest of Washtenaw County. My number one cannabis dispensary in Ann Arbor is situated a few miles east of Gallup Park, which sits along the banks of the Huron River.
