This is in the UP of Michigan, which is remote by definition.
Matter of perspective. I once heard a Yooper say that if the Mackinac bridge ever went out, 300 million Americans would be stranded!
We were on the deck of a nice bar in Eagle River Michigan, way up the Keweenaw Peninsula. Talked to a couple, he was an Engineer on a lake freighter, she was a housewife. He got around. She said she almost never gets south of the bridge. After a while, something clicked, and I had to verify which bridge. She meant the lift bridge at Houghton MI, not the Mackinaw Bridge.
It's all realitive.
The UP is 30 of Michigan's land area, but only has 3% of the population.
One can get to the UP from Wisconsin. That's how all the FIBS get there.
