The Post travels to the Bahamas


The Post recently took a tour of the Bahamas with Josh and Rachel (Reed) Hunt, of Martin. The couple left Miami on a five-day cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line and made stops at Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s own island), Nassau, Freeport (on Grand Bahama Island), and then back to Great Stirrup Cay. That island is the one shown in the background of the photo.

Thank you, Rachel and Josh, for taking us with you!

The Post travels to the Thumb


TJ Norris of Solon Township, traveled with husband Ken to the Thumb Region of Michigan to get one last road trip in before the snows. While the main display at the Sanilac Petroglyphs, just south of Port Austin, was closed for the winter, there was still a good hike in the woods and enough petroglyphs visible to give a good reason to come back.

Thanks to TJ and Ken for taking us with you!

The Post travels north


Charlie and Kathy Prahl took the Cedar springs Post on a Pure Michigan adventure beginning on a color tour up to and through the Tunnel of Trees; met friends in St. Ignace for a quick visit; and up to Willabee’s Hotel in Brimley—the only place for miles with a vacancy but really enjoyed the area. They took in Deer Park, climbed Castle Rock and spent some time in Mackinaw City. Two days were spent at The Island House Hotel on Mackinac Island, highly recommended, embracing all the beauty of that wonderful island! We live in a beautiful state!

Thanks so much, Charlie and Kathy, for taking us with you!

The Post travels to the Grand Canyon


Samantha Avery displays her POST at the Grand Canyon

The Post traveled to the Grand Canyon at the end of August with Samantha Avery, of Cedar Springs. But it wasn’t just a vacation; it was actually done as part of a charity fundraiser for the Project Athena Foundation.

“I hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim from the south rim to the north rim, which is about 25 miles…about 9 miles down, across the bottom ‘box’ of the canyon, and up about 14.5 miles with about 6,000ft of elevation gain,” explained Avery. “The temperature in the canyon was about 150 degrees that day and it was miserable. You have to move quickly because you’re basically being cooked alive while you hike. I made it rim to rim in about 15 hours, with no serious injury, but did lose a toenail and a lot of skin from my feet and some of my gear melted.”

At the request of her parents and grandmother, Sam carried a copy of the latest Cedar Springs Post through the canyon with her and snapped photos at the bottom and the top. 

“Over 5 million people visit the Grand Canyon every year and only 1 percent of those visitors hike down to the river, and only 1 percent of those hikers hike across the Canyon and up the other side. It may not be the first time the Post has been to the Grand Canyon, but I’m willing to bet it’s the first time that it’s gone rim to rim!” she remarked.

Avery explained that the hike was done as a fundraiser for the Project Athena Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps cancer survivors and victims of other medical ailments live out their adventure goals and achieve difficult physical goals after suffering from debilitating circumstances. 

“This cause is near and dear to my heart since both my grandma and sister are engaged in an ongoing battle against breast cancer. I trained for a year to do this difficult task in solidarity with my older sister, who is currently in her own difficult task of fighting stage IV cancer.”

Sam said this is her grandmother Peggy Avery’s second bout with it, and she’s beating it. However, Sam’s sister, Sarah Brygal, recently lost her insurance, and needs help raising money for her treatment. She gave us a link to her sister’s gofundme page if anyone would like to help her out. Sarah was a teacher but is no longer working. She and her husband, who is a firefighter and septic tank inspector, live in Greenville with their four children. https://www.gofundme.com/f/sarah-brygal-cancer-relief

Thank you so much, Sam, for including us in this project, and for taking us with you!

The Post travels to state of Washington


The Post traveled to Washington state with Laurie Denslow and Johna Alexander to visit daughter Taylor and family Shawna and Bentley Lubbers-Denslow.

Also pictured is Shauna’s niece, Shannon Thompson, David Mendez, and children Bayleigh and Weston.

“We visited Pike’s Farm Market in Seattle; Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium; Owen’s Beach and 5-Mile Drive—a scenic drive through the forest with views of Narrows Bridge, Pugent Sound, huge trees, and lots of wildlife,” Laurie said.

The Post travels to Denmark


The Cedar Springs Post traveled to Denmark for three weeks in July with Terry and Dot Northup of Howard City. It was Terry’s second trip to Denmark, where he hasn’t yet met a Danish pastry he didn’t like! Dot has been there dozens of times in the past 45 years. 

“We have hosted Danish exchange students who attended Tri County High School so we were visiting three of them and their families,” they explained. Also, Dot was a summer exchange student to Denmark 45 years ago so visits to her host family and long time friends were also included. 

“Mainly our time was spent in and around Copenhagen where this photo was taken but we also took trains to other areas of the country, including the Jutland Penninsula. 

In the attached photo, the building on the right is the Copenhagen Town Hall. All three buildings with the towers are located on the Copenhagen Town Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen) in the center of the city. 

Thanks so much, Terry and Dot, for taking us with you!
