HALE – Already known as the largest bogging event in the north, Michigan Mud Jam (MMJ) is preparing to exceed expectations in 2022, during the ninth annual run.

There was nothing like the early to mid 1970s Tawas summers as a pre-teen neo zoomed dweebie free spirit. There was nary a care in the world, no school days, no dear old golden rule days, and no reading, writing and ‘rithmetic taught to the tune of the hickory stick.

So on my commute from Tawas to Whittemore the other evening, the dial locked into my favorite radio station of 60’s, ‘70’s and ‘80’s endless list of jukebox favorites, the song “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf started to play through the speakers.
