HOW TO SAVE $$ ON MACKINAC ISLAND

Shepler’s Facebook and Twitter pages run Fan Friday and other contests to win free tickets and promotions.

You can text ‘sheplers’ to 33938 for specials.

BIKE RENTALS You don’t need a mountain bike if you just want to ride around the waterfront of the Island. You will need one however, if you want to explore inland – there’s a hill in the middle of the island, from Market Street past the Grand Hotel and here are hills from downtown to the Cemetery, Governors House and Fort Mackinac and the East Bluff. Based on a Mountain Bike rental, here are the best bike rentals for your buck.
Mackinac Island Bike Shop. This shop offers some of the best deals – no deposit, free water, basket and bike lock. They also offer $1 off the first hour rental. A Comfort/Mountain (7-21 Speed) is $8 p/h, $28 h/d, $44 f/d.
If you are looking for full day hire try Ryba’s Bike Shop. Click here for $1 off coupon (2nd hour) A full day is $45 with a $50 deposit. The Island House Bike Shop offers this coupon, which will get you $5 off each $8 hour rental.
Orr Kids offer a free helmet, basket and trail map. The manager here is nice, he fixed my bike for free! A mountain bikes will set you back $8 hour or $48.00 daily.
Mackinac Wheels offer free helmet use. A Mountain bike is $8 p/h, 30 h/d, 48 f/d

Raffle...

Good News for our door prize raffle drawing!

I received word from Airstream Life and they are donating a one year subscription - thank you Rich!!

Also, Vintage Trailer Supply is sending a few items for us and some coupons - Yay!

I think I'm bringing a fish...

I still can't figure out what we're going to do for the potluck... Main dish, side dish, dessert, main dish, side dish, dessert... oh my. My potluck history has always been the fruit salad. I just feel this time I should change it up a bit, but I don't know to what. I'm still thinking...

Here Fishie, Fishie

Thought I'd give all the fisherman out there something to drool over! Captain Adam got this large mouth bass today, on our lake at home. It qualifies for a State of Michigan DNR Master Angler Patch!

When we stopped hyperventilating and went to remove the hook, there was a surprise! A fish tail was sticking up out of this big boy's throat. He had just swallowed an 8" fish! Captain Adam got a two-fer, a double, a bonus, a whale of a tale to tell.

Hope the second picture will show the unlucky fellow's tail. It is all the black you see in the throat. It was dusk out and so the picture is worked over pretty good just to get what we got. Enjoy and looking forward to fishing and cruising with you as we Explore Under the Bridge.

Tina...did you say FISH? Our raffle has just the filet knife to use on every keeper. Check out these close ups.

Great job on getting with Airstream Life and Vintage Trailer Supply! Lets keep these vendors in our minds when we need something and support those who support us.
