"Communities all throughout the lower peninsula in Michigan. Of course we Talked about my hometown, Muskegon, known for peer Marquette Park and the Silversides and all those really cool things on Lake Michigan. Patoski very well known as that northwest sector of the Lower peninsula, and this really Really cool place with all those those cute little towns, the L. Pena area not as busy as the West side, but just as cool place as so many other places up north, and now we're going to go to that blue water area. You might be saying, What's the blue Water area? Well, I think it Really describes the area quite well. And to tell us more about let's just say Port Port Huron and more. Let's bring in Katy step. She is the marketing manager for the Blue Water Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. Katie, It's good to have you on the program. Thank you for having me love Well, let's let's talk about the region that you cover first, because blue water area people might be wondering where that is. Yes, it's Michigan's thumb Coast, Michigan's thumb Coast. Yes, so it's basically let's say From generally the Port Huron area all the way up to the kind of the tip of the thumb and you guys do such a great job to promote the area. It is I guess I'll say, eclectic area because even though you're all on the waterfront, you have some really different communities all along that area. Me too. I think we have a really good, um, region from, you know the lower end, which is closer to Detroit Almanac area. We've got that island maritime feel with the freshwater Delta down there, which is one of the world's largest And then you get all the way up to the tip of the thumb. And you've got more of a sand dune aecom mountainous area, So everything in between now most people when they're on the water in your area. Would you say most people will experience it by kayak or do people go power boating or they go sailing or, you know what's the water experience there? Oh, that's a tough one. I think it's a really good mix because you know, Lake Huron coming out of Port Huron is really popular for sailors. You will constantly see them out heading under the bridge. But down in the ST Clair River. It's really big fishing around Horsens Island is this Delta area that's very popular for water trails, kayaking, canoeing, You're going to see a lot of fishing right along their car. Voting, of course, is it's just as I'd say. It's a really good mix of all of them. Yeah, probably is that would I'd characterize it that way as well. Now, Katie, you mentioned water trails. I know on your website, blue water dot org. You do have a little feature on water trails makes a lot of sense because you have so much water in the area. Tell us what we should expect to see when we go to your website. Yes, so blue water dot org. If you click on the recreation tab, it's going to give you all of the water trails the hiking trails that are popular in the water trucks category. We have 12 different Paddling routes. One of the most popular one is actually a national water trails. 10 Miles. It's the island loop route to me, That's my favorite because you're getting that slower paddle section. We're going through this lush tropical area under the tanner Gate. And then you're going to end up going under the blue water Bridge back around into the urban paddled through downtown port here on it's very beautiful. Yeah, I like that kind of paddling myself. I've done Whitewater peddling. Um, yeah, It's kind of fun, but you don't really get to see the area. So it's nice to be in an area where you can really enjoy the entire atmosphere, the entire experience and you can certainly do it that way. And the blue water area now, uh You know, I want to kind of give people a little more insights and what they'll find when they go to blue water dot org Because you do very smartly have like a kid's section there. Tell us about that as well. So that's new for us this season, we created a activity blog essentially our activities guide for just the younger Children, So it's right on our front page. You'll see there and it's going to give you All of the great things across the entire thumb coast to do from petting farms to the fun super slides They've created down in Port Huron, and I think it's really great to see this for your young ones, and they will enjoy pretty much anything on there and really a lot of it's going up to Big kids, too. So you're gonna geared towards the entire family on this one, and there's going to be so much to do on there. You're going to want to stay the night. It sounds good. Now you have been doing so much work both on the website, Social media and such so that people can learn more about Visiting the area. I understand you put some videos together on tiktok Tell us about that. Tiktok has been a really great resource. We started our tiktok page last spring. So it's been I guess, a year over a year now, and it has been wonderful. And at first I wasn't sure like okay, Well, how audience are we looking at here? But we're getting a lot more interaction with it now from local saying, Hey, I'm coming to the area. Where can I rent a boat? On on each of the video. So right now, when you go to our tech tech paid to discover the blue Michigan thumb Coast You're going to see over 200 little short video, so pretty much every area of the thumb Coast has had a short little video clip, and it just gives you that that sense of what to expect when you get there. I was there last summer with the under the radar guys, Tom Golden and Jim Edelman. And let me tell you I really enjoyed visiting We, uh, we saw the not only the coastal area but kind of went inland as well. And one of the things that I really enjoyed was just kind of exploring the history of the area you mentioned. It's a Mariners kind of like, uh, you know, culture and history. The area is really all about ship shipping and boating and such So there's a lot of history there to enjoy as well. Yeah, We have a really fun heritage tour that we created also this year, and it's going to take you through. I forget how many points it's something that 30 some points of interest. Throughout the thumb coast, So we've designed in a way that you could do it on your own as a road trip. You could do a couple things at once, and then it picks back up.

S. Air Force test pilot school back in nineteen eighty eight U. S. navy test pilot of the year in nineteen ninety one he was selected to be an astronaut in nineteen ninety two the first Canadian commander of the ISS the New York times bestselling author he is also a YouTube sensation and engaging speaker Chris welcome to the program colonel so great to have you on the show George is a pleasure to be talking with you heard so much about you years ago years ago I had the opportunity of interviewing the astronauts on the ISS and it was just that the light the way that was set up and everything else and you have three missions use what about what about a hundred and sixty six days up there yeah just a little under half the year the error I helped build the Russian space station mir from space shuttle Atlantis on the first flight and then I did space walks to build the international space station from space shuttle endeavor Humm my second flight and I was the pilot of a Russian space ship on my third flight to go up and as you say a live up on the space station for five months or so and then and then command the international space station so pretty amazing sequence of events when I look back to what I was thinking about when I was a nine year old boy my gosh we all want to be astronauts when we were kids and you went and did it and you you grew up just just down the river from where I grew up here I think you're originally to try it now yep just up the St Clair river there on the other side in Sarnia so yeah similar background but I I've been so lucky to have done the things that I've done and the perspectives that that come from all around the world two thousand six hundred times I go to Windsor a lot as a kid just love that place greet people up there we've got a huge audience a Chris in Canada right now listening to you worldwide as well and when you first became an astronaut what was it what was the R. modus operandi a what was it that pushed you to want to become one I never thought that I would I would be an astronaut I mean that's what I wanted to that's what I decided to do when I was just upstream of Detroit and Windsor there and in the summer of sixty nine I was just a little kid nine years old but watching the race to the moon reading science fiction watching Star Trek on TV watching two thousand one a space Odyssey it was all a big amazing blur in my head but I realized if I actually want to be an astronaut then I need to change who I am you know I need to do things I need to learn to fly a need to go to school I need to keep my body in shape I need to start doing things now if I ever hope that that someone's going to be to command a space ship and so I really started with that mixture of science fiction and fantasy and then the reality of watching the first astronaut sly and and George it turned out to be better than I dreamed it would be it's an amazing human experience and the six people are up in the space station right now they their their early pathfinder is to to the rest of the universe in a life that is just an amazing thing to be part of that used to be flat impossible when you first went up there did you have butterflies you mention what I did before that I was a test pilot with the airforce and a test pilot with the navy and normally you know butterflies are are such are sort of like here I depending how your body reacts and I try to never be a so in a position where all I got really going for myself is here I I try and get ready every single flight I did as a fighter pilot intercepting Soviet bombers during the Cold War or as a test pilot which is one of the most dangerous jobs going I spent as much time as I possibly could to get myself ready for those things and as an astronaut basically the twenty one years that I served as as one of NASA's astronaut just as a Canadian basically just got ready every day study of trying to get ready for those three space flights so I was excited I was I was an eager nine year old boy are ready space flight but I was also ready George so that I wasn't afraid I was aware of the danger but there's a difference between danger and fear they're not really synonymous and and I think the greatest antidote for fear is competence and so I've worked really hard my whole life to get get competent that the things that are important to me what's your first launch for yourself Chris up to the ISS yeah my first flight was in Atlanta space shuttle Atlantis and we were going that was before the ISS was was even built as so I was going to the space station before that space station mir with the Russian space station first launched in eighty six and that actually use space shuttle Atlantis and then the big Canadian robot arm the Canada arm build a big Russian built section for a real you know for a guy who used to be a fighter pilot pretty amazing job to be and to use the Canadian armed to build a Russian space module from an American space shuttle onto the the Russian space station we learned a huge amount from that and and it kind of laid the groundwork for for building the fifteen nation international space station what was astronaut Chris Hadfield his book is called a national

"The first Canadian commander of the ISS a New York times bestselling author he is also a YouTube sensation and engaging speaker Chris welcome to the program colonel so great to have you on the show George is a pleasure to be talking with you heard so much about you years ago years ago I had the opportunity of interviewing the astronauts on the ISS and it was just the light the way that was set up and everything else do you have three missions you spent about what about a hundred and sixty six days up there yeah just a little under half a year year and I helped build the Russian space station mir from space shuttle Atlantis on the first flight and then I did space walks to build the international space station from space shuttle endeavor Humm I second flight and then I was the pilot of a Russian space ship on my third flight to go up and as you say a live up on the space station for five months or so and then and then command the international space station so pretty amazing sequence of events when I look back to what I was thinking about when I was a nine year old boy my gosh we all want to be astronauts when we were kids and you went and did it and you you grew up just just down the river from where I grew up here I think you're originally to try it now yep just up the St Clair river there on the other side in Sarnia so yeah similar background but I I've been so lucky to have done the things that I've done and the perspectives that that come from all around the world two thousand six hundred times I go to Windsor a lot as a kid just love that place agreed people up there we've got a huge audience a Chris in Canada right now listening to you worldwide as well and when you first became an astronaut what was it what was the R. modus operandi a what was it that pushed you to want to become one I never thought that I would I would be an astronaut I mean that's what I wanted to that's what I decided to do when I was just upstream of Detroit and Windsor there and in the summer of sixty nine I was just a little kid nine years old but watching the race to the moon reading science fiction watching Star Trek on TV watching two thousand one a space Odyssey it was all a big amazing blur in my head but I realized if I actually want to be an astronaut and I need to change who I am and I need to do things I need to learn to fly I need to go to school I need to keep my body in shape I need to start doing things now if I ever hope that that someone's gonna pick be to command a space ship and so I really started with that mixture of science fiction and fantasy and then the reality of watching the first astronaut sly and and George it turned out to be better than I dreamed it would be it's an amazing human experience and the six people are up in the space station right now they their their early finders to to the rest of the universe in a life that is just an amazing thing to be part of that used to be flat impossible when you first went up there did you have butterflies you mention but I did before that I was a test pilot with the airforce and a test pilot with the navy and normally you know butterflies are ours are sort of like here I depending how your body reacts and I try and never be a in a position where all I've got really going for myself is here I I try and get ready every single flight I did as a fighter pilot intercepting Soviet bombers during the Cold War or as a test pilot which is one of the most dangerous jobs going I spent a lot as much time as I possibly could to get myself ready for those things and as an astronaut basically the twenty one years that I served as as one of NASA's astronauts as a Canadian basically just got ready every day study a train to get ready for those three space flights so I'm I was excited I was I was an eager nine year old boy ready space flight but I was also ready George so that I wasn't afraid I was aware of the danger but there's a difference between danger interfere they're not really synonymous and and I think the greatest antidote for fear is competence and so I worked really hard my whole life to get get competent that the things that are important to me what's your first launch for yourself Chris up to the ISS yeah my first flight was in Atlanta space shuttle Atlantis and we were going that was before the I. S. S. was was even built as so I was going to the space station before that space station mir with the Russian space station first launched in eighty six and that actually used space shuttle Atlantis and then the big Canadian robot arm the canon arm build a big Russian built section for a real you know for a guy he used to be a fighter pilot pretty amazing job to be and to use the Canadian armed to build a Russian space modul from an American space shuttle onto their the Russian space station we learned a huge amount from that and and it kind of laid the groundwork for for building the fifteen nation international space station what was astronaut Chris Hadfield his book is called a national it's guide to life on earth website linked up it coast to coast am dot com what is it like if you could describe it for us to be out in space looking back at planet earth it's the most amazing moment George's I've done two space walks and it all on a spaceship looking back at the earth is cool but you're looking through a window it's it's sort of like it imagine if you went to the Grand Canyon but but you could never actually go stand outside and stand on the yet you're like you're looking through the window you lose a lot of the visceral feel but to be outside on a space walk inside your little space suit where the only thing between you and the universe and the world is just the curve of the plastic of your visor that it's really personal and and to look at the world you're going around the world every ninety minutes so it's this gigantic silent incredible kaleidoscope magnificently and on top of Billy sort of turning underneath you you're gonna cross at five miles a second she crossed the U. S. from for where I am tonight in San Diego all the way across to Long Island whatever you cross it at nine minutes across the U. S. hello so that is a roaring by silently it's it's it's as if you were standing at Niagara Falls right at the foot of it and there wasn't a sound so it's it's all the visual and you're you're trying to absorb this incredible overpowering silent spectacle in front of you and then you're also weightless so that's kind of a magnificent almost like a super power feel like and your when you look the other direction you're in the three dimensionality of the universe itself we always look up at the sky for birth like you're you're sitting in the in your mother's lap in your lap of mother nature and there's a certain comfort to that the sky is not where you are you're looking up at it but to be outside on a space walk you are forever struck with the immensity of everything the tidiness and and rare preciousness of the earth that's nearby it and and the fact that we're now starting actually physically step beyond and permanently start living off the planet on the space station it's it's an amazing moment in history when you're out on a space walk you really get a sense for what those footsteps feel like and I think Chris to one of the most dramatic things for you up there in space is here on planet earth we have all the strife in the troubles that we have between countries yet up there in the international space station there are Americans Canadians Russians everybody like brother and sister up there and why can't the world be like that well you know I I think it's proof that we can and yeah I'm I'm kind of a classic example in that in the eighties I was flying and arms interceptor an F. eighteen with with missiles on it and bullets in the nose to go intercept Soviet bombers that were practicing cruise missile launchers in North America that's what I did for a living and she she's and yet that same little kid I'm just a decade later was flying another American built aerospace vehicle but this time the space shuttle but with a different set of objectives to go and try and cooperatively start exploring the rest of the universe first with on mir and then subsequently an international space station it's really just sort of a question of how we choose to organize ourselves and and one of the things you get orbiting the world every day is yeah there's strife you fly over Syria or or or the scars of the Gulf War or the or the drying out of the Errol see at some of the stupid in her respect human decisions we make but you also fly over.
