Yeah- there doesn't seem to be much going on as far as models on the upper east side of the lower peninsula

I just got called for winter work so I'm stuck on a boat tied up in Sarnia, Canada (across the bridge from Port Huron) for at least the next couple weeks

Model Clubs are COOL Chuck! The one I belong to DMCC, meets once a month, and is a blast. We have guys who come outta northern Ohio just to come an talk Models! We have a GREAT TIME. It's up to how you value your time? If ya think a hour drive ta hang out with OTHER guys who think JUST LIKE YOU is worth it, then that hour ain't that long.Posted Image Posted Image

...thanks for the invite George and Kris. I will definitely make it a point to stop up. I know of no clubs or groups in my immediate area, so I pretty much do this on my own. Sounds like a good time..........

I've been to Petersburg a couple times, not really a big place either lol. I went to Dundee while I was out that way recently to see the aftermath of the tornado that hit Cabella's and that water park next door, place still isn't completely cleaned up! I had the chance to possibly move to Costa Mesa, California earlier this year to work for my brother at AnQi Bistro (from the An Family, the same owners of The Crustacean restaurant). That pretty much fell through because I didn't exactly have the means to move out there. Maybe someday lol, he did just change jobs to another pretty big restaurant corp. but I'm not holding my breath lol.
