My wife and I, along with my daughter and family, recently vacationed in the Silver Lake region of Michigan. We have heard from others over the years that it was a great place to visit and enjoy. We had no major expectations other than relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and just go with the flow. Little did we know that we would have an experience that we would all remember for a lifetime.
We had the great fortune to rent a home that was right next door to a family from your area, Kurt and Kathy Gillespie and their children. In one week we were introduced to the dunes in a way that we could never have imagined as Kurt and son Kevin took all of us for rides that we will not ever forget. Their dedication to the sport is apparent and for them to openly share their knowledge and experience, as well as machines, was just incredible. After long days on the dunes, then to invite us to share dinners and campfires at night, just made my family feel so comfortable and at home. Just thought that someone should let you know that you have some wonderful ambassadors for Cedar Springs, Michigan, and Silver Lake dunes, in your midst. And one more thing—we also proved that Wolverines and Buckeyes really do have much more in common than football. Our families together are what it really is all about.
