I was taking the most epic road trip of my life.
Along with my dog Starla, I planned to wind my way up through the US and cross into Canada.
Since I just retired I had plenty of free time and extra money, so I thought just taking a long, leisurely road trip to see new places would be a lot of fun. Starting from my home in the deep south I worked my way north. When I crossed into the state of Michigan I noticed my engine making a funny noise. I made it as far north as Muskegon before the car died. I took it to a local mechanic, who said the entire engine was shot. That meant until I could figure out my next move I would have to stay in Muskegon. At first I was bummed out, but after a few hours of walking around Muskegon with Starla I realized that my car trouble might be fate. Perhaps I was fated to find the town of Muskegon, which loves dogs and art, and has multiple cannabis dispensaries. We found a dog-friendly beach on the Muskegon waterfront, where Starla and I spent several hours. Luckily, the beach was right next to a cannabis dispensary, so I bought some edibles and a few grams of a locally grown strain called Muskegon Ox-blend. Of course I can’t just pick up and move to Muskegon on a whim, but I surely am tempted to do so! I could see Starla and I leading a long and happy life here in Muskegon.
