      Milakokia to St Ignas

      Day 6!

      What a day. It began at a lovely rustic campground with a weird little breakfast of half a Backpacker's Pantry meal I didn't finish last night, half of a Butterfingers bar, and some buckwheat tea that Emma got me from Japan. Thanks, Em!

      My first stop was King Fish Market to pick up smoked salmon and crackers for lunch. It's been there since 1951! I opted for Cajun despite the shop owner's brown sugar recommendation. I ended up saving it for dinner and having a pastie instead (pass - tee. I was corrected multiple times).

      These Yoopers take pasties seriously! It's basically a hot pocket... but don't tell them I said so. I got my pasty from the world renound "Letho's", which has been around since even before King's. And guess what. While I was checking out, the man behind me offered to buy me lunch! But there's more! HE'S FROM THE LEHTO FAMILY! And also, the shop owner, Bobby, gave me an apple and three pears. These Yoopers, folks. Mm.

      I then biked down a road called Cheeseman as I studied football podcasts so I had something to talk about at a bar tonight during the Packer's/Lion's game. My studies were a little fruitless 🤷‍♂️

      A bike mechanic from Escanaba recommended camping at Straits State Park, so I got myself a campsite, set up my tent, and have been hanging out at a quaint little bar ever since. Listening to live music and charging my battery. No football conversations yet... I'm still working up the courage...

      Tomorrow - the LP!

      🍎 The Pasty!
      🎶 Great be the Lake, Ben Lamar Gay
      🙏 The Lahto's, of course!
