    The reports and stories contained on this Web page have been put together with information taken from "The Victor Swanson Fabulous Files of Places to See in Michigan and Wisconsin" and with information obtained from operators and staffers of tourist attractions and from press releases, Web sites, and other sources.  The reports and stories are provided as a public service by Victor Swanson and The Hologlobe Press.  Almost all persons and entities, such as staffers of radio stations, may freely use the materials; neither AAA Michigan nor any employee of AAA Michigan may use, distribute, download, transmit, copy, or duplicate any of the material presented on this page in any way or through any means.


To all "liberals" and "communists" and "socialists"
and "fascists" and "Shariaists," I state--I promote hate toward
Barack Hussein Obama (a killer), all Democrats, most
of the high-level people in the Republican Party, and people
who are tied to Islamic law or Sharia and Allah
(the piece of shit idea created by men).  One reason for
that is they support the "Shared Responsibility Payment."  It is
a federal tax on people for not buying federal-government
approved health-care insurance and
for not helping to pay for other people's health
care, such as foreigners who are illegal aliens (whether or not
they are children) and defects of nature like Caitlyn Jenner who
want to change their outward appearance from one sex type to
another sex type.  I do not pay for others who do not care
for themselves, especially under threat, coming for rotten
politicians.  It is not my "responsibility" to promote and support
rottenness!  A good person must learn the skill to hate on
demand to protect the self.  Hate is power to destroy
rottenness and rotten people fully.  Learn the skill!

- - - Travel Thoughts for Everyone - - -

    When you travel in Michigan, you can meet people, and when you travel, you may not talk about the same subjects with people as I do.  Over the last ten years or so, I have from time to time ended up talking with people who own or manage businesses or manage departments in businesses, and I often get the same response--young people do not have a work ethic or young people just do no like to work, and some responses hint at how stupid the young generation is.  I talked with a manager in a grocery store in Royal Oak, Michigan, a few weeks ago, and the manager mentioned how the manager almost has to treat the young people as little children--one young person had a hard time knowing what to do to sweep up.  Have you tried this trick?  Tell the bagger at a grocery store that you want "paper in plastic."  Given that little order or request, some people, especially younger persons, who are bagging up groceries go into stall mode, wondering what to do.  I have seen it!  Also, I have seen some baggers struggle to decide what is the best method to put a brown paper bag in a plastic bag.  And that is the state of some persons, especially younger persons, in Michigan.  I have to report that you can find rotten people in Michigan.  You can also find a lot of stupid people.  By the way, for this month--September 2018--the edition of Television History of Trivia, which can be reached by using this T.H.A.T. #173 link, shows up some rotten people in Michigan who are tied to television and newspapers, and I urge you to see it, and in the next edition of T.H.A.T. and the next edition of Michigan Travel Tips, I expose the highly rotten nature of a so-called journalist named John Gallagher (in Michigan).  John Gallagher is one of the evil persons whom you may run into some time while traveling in Michigan.  For now, forget about that, and look at the remainder of this edition of Michigan Travel Tips.

    I think I have something quite different to talk about in this edition of Michigan Travel Tips.  I begin by going back to June 3, 2002.  On that date, I was at work--at AAA Michigan in Dearborn, Michigan--and I opened up a letter that had a press release in it.  The press release was about the Historic Bridge Park, which is located in the Battle Creek area (of Calhoun County in the Lower Peninsula).  There was a telephone number with the press release, and it used it, and I ended up talking with Joanna Johnson, a staffer of  the county involved with the park [Note: At the time, the project manager for the park was Vern Mesler.].  I ended up talking about the park in radio programs for radio stations in Michigan.  On August 26, 2018, I looked for information about the Historic Bridge Park through the Internet.  I found things have changed with the park since 2002.  In 2002, there were only three bridges on display--three metal truss bridges (the main focus on the park), the first of which--the 133rd Avenue Bridge--had been set up in 1999.  The idea of the park is, when some old metal truss bridges become no longer viable for regular use, they get taken down, restored, and set up at the park.  By the way, in 2001, the bridges on display were lighted for the Christmas season.  Today, the park has five steel truss bridges--The Bauer Road Bridge, the Charlotte Highway Bridge, the Gale Road Bridge, the 133rd Avenue Bridge, and the 20 Mile Road Bridge.  In addition, there is stone-arch bridge called Dixon's Bridge.  The park is not just a park with bridges on display.  The park is near the Kalamazoo River, and people can use the park to launch boats and kayaks on to the Kalamazoo River.  The place has a playground, a picnic area, a bathrooms building, paved trails, and a pavilion.  The pavilion can be used for parties and weddings.  There is a charge to use the pavilion, but there is no fee to use the park or see the bridges.  I can report that the Historic Bridge Park is open every day from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and I shall say that the park is located along Waddles Road near I-94 and the Kalamazoo River.  In 2002, there was nothing in Michigan called the Red Pole Park, so I could not talk about it on radio stations in Michigan.  Last year, there was no Red Pole Park either.  On August 22, 2018, a Red Pole Park was given a dedication, and now, officially, there is a Red Pole Park in Michigan.  That is a simple park located in the City of Southfield (which is sort of north of Detroit in the Detroit area, though in Oakland County of the Lower Peninsula), and it has 65 telephone poles on display, and each stands about 35-feet-high and is covered in red paint.  A person who is driving on Northwestern Highway near Civic Center Drive or 10 Mile Road can sort of see the poles from afar (though not too far).  By the way, telephone poles are often called utility poles, since they are used with cable-television systems, telephone systems, and electricity systems, and they are even used to post, for instance, pieces of paper about missing cats or dogs.  I wonder if the heyday of the telephone pole was in the early years of the telephone history--in big cites.  Before multiplexing technology would show up in the early 1900s, a pair of telephone wires had to be run from the "central office" of a telephone company to each telephone customer, and so, for instance, in New York City, the wires were all over the place in the air.  Multiplexing technology allowed multiple telephone conversations to be carried on a pair of telephone lines (main lines)--each conversation existed on a different piece of band width of a carrier.  There are no wires connected to the telephone poles of Red Pole Park, which is a little like a forest of tress with no leaves.  Generally speaking, Red Pole Park can be visited in the daytime of every day of the year.

      Warning announcement!  Because of incidents at schools for children and incidents at other places for people in general tied to "Sharia" or "Islamic Law" or even the religion/political system known as "Islam," I now regularly have this paragraph as a part of each edition of Michigan Travel Tips.  The governmental system of the United States of America based on The U.S. Constitution and "Sharia" or, informally, Islam law, are not compatible and cannot co-exist, and one reason is "Sharia" (et cetera) is a political system, in which there is one-party rule, and that one party is basically made up or controlled by religious leaders who base all the ways of their culture or society on "Sharia" or "Islamic Law."  Those who uphold and practice "Sharia" have no tolerance for the existence of Christianity or Buddhism or Hinduism or non-religion, and that is a fact, and "Sharia" is a political system in which women are second-rate human bodies and in which clergy can be involved in determining  business transactions, and there is no "freedom of speech" tied to politics in a society related to "Sharia."  When you travel around Michigan and in other states of the country, watch for signs that rotten people are trying to teach you or family members, especially children, that "Sharia" is good and "Allah" is good and teach you or family members that the United States of America is bad and that, for instance, Christianity and Buddhism and Hinduism are bad, which I have evidence is happening and which is being brought about by people who are clearly working to make "Sharia" and "Islamic Law" a dominant political system in the world (it is a political system as rotten as socialism and fascism and communism are, since it promotes violence and thuggery and coercion and killing under the face of religion).  By the way, a society based on "Sharia" really creates nothing in the long run and does not advance the human society as a whole since it is too busy suppressing the ideas of people and keeping that ideas of the society based of ways of only a few minds up front (the political leaders), whose main purpose is too keep themselves enriched through  the work of others, the many--it is a gang-run society really.  Yes, if you run across people pushing the idea that Muslim stuff--particularly the true The Quran and not the translations of The Quran that are faked to hide the true nature of Islam--is better than the U.S. is, especially to little children, go public and make it known to other good people and fight back against it.

    On September 6, 2018, a new monument (though rather small) was given a dedication at Traverse City (of Grand Traverse County in the Lower Peninsula), specifically at Mini Park, which is along East Front Street.  The monument is a piece of modern art, and it is designed to depict something real.  A story at the website for 7&4 News (a television station based at Traverse City) or "upnorthlive.com" said that the something is a replica of an MH-65 helicopter used by the U.S. Coast Guard at Traverse City for a number of years [Bagford, Corbin.  "Traverse City welcomes 'Coast Guard City' monument."  upnorthlive.com, 6 September 2018.].  I report that, actually, the image is a depiction of the "HH-65A" family of helicopters.  In relation to Air Station Traverse City of the U.S. Coast Guard, which came under the control of the U.S. Coast Guard in November 1945, the first version of the "HH-65A" family of helicopters--the "HH-65A" (also referred to as the "Dolphin")--showed up in 1995.  The "Dolphin" at Air Station Traverse City went through several versions--with some changes, such as to electronics--and the "HH-65B" showed up in 2003.  In 2011, the "MH-65C" showed up; the "HH" part was replaced by "MH".  Later, the "MH-65D" showed up.  For the U.S. Coast Guard, there was or is the "MH-65E" model, but such a version never showed up for regular service at Air Station Traverse City (as far as I can tell).  On August 14, 2017, the last "MH-65D" stationed at Air Station Traverse City left, and now the air station is only using the "MH-60T" helicopter (or the newer "Jayhawk").  If you get to Traverse City some time, you might come across the "Coast Guard City" monument or "The Guardian," but remember monument is about the "HH-65A" family of helicopters and not just the "MH-65".

    Enjoy your traveling in Michigan!

    Stay well!


    P.S. #1: Remember: While you travel in Michigan, remind your children or grandchildren that they should never pledge to be a "servant to Obama" or a servant to any politician or sing the praises of Barack Obama, and to help you remember other matters that you should teach children about bad politicians, such as Barack Obama (who can be described as an "enslave"), see such other documents of mine as Conservatism for Children and What Conservatism Means (which can be reached through this link: Conservatism) and Lessons for Children about Politics and Dangerous People (which can be reached through this link: Children).  (Note: I first passed along the subject of not being a "servant to Obama" and the like in the publication entitled T.H.A.T. #58, which can be reached through this link: T.H.A.T. #58.)

    P.S. #2: While you travel in Michigan, it is easy to come across evidence of rotten people or to meet rotten people. One really rotten man is Richard Bernstein, who is a new member to the Supreme Court for the State of Michigan.  Evidence of his rottenness can be found in my document entitled Richard Bernstein--A Man Who Hopes You Are Blind to His Rottenness, which can be reached through this Bernstein link.  Yet, on Monday, January 12, 2015, the Detroit Free Press did a story about Richard Bernstein to sell Richard Bernstein as something good, though he is not (Ahern, Louise Knott.  "State's 1st blind justice aims to be inspiration."  Detroit Free Press, 12 January 2014, p. 4A.).  I report--I urge anyone who runs a business and loses a court case in which Richard Bernstein was one of the presiding judges to have the decision thrown out or killed through another case, since Richard Bernstein, while running to be elected to the Supreme Court of Michigan, made it clear that he was going to be biased against businesses if he were to be elected to the Supreme Court of Michigan, and that is a fact. Richard Bernstein is a rotten man!
