....that people are leaving


Well, no big surprise here!

More people left Michigan last year than moved in, continuing a trend that has lasted almost 30 years, according to a survey from a leading moving company released Monday.

Of the 10,325 interstate shipments handled by United Van Lines in Michigan during the year, 66% were for moving people out of the state, putting Michigan in a tie with North Dakota for the largest percentage of outbound moves for the year.

Not once since 1977, when the company began tracking the data, has Michigan had more customers moving into the state than exiting it. But the 66% departure rate was just below Michigan's highest departure level of 66.9%, in 1981

I figured Ohio would be #1. The ultra-conservative legislature here has been finding ways to drive people out for almost two decades now. They've done a good job of it, too.

Between the auto industry and Pfizer, lots of Michigan residents have been getting laid off lately...

That's funny because people here tend to blame the liberal Govenor.

What a shame. Michigan is a wonderful state.
It's affordable, has four seasons, lots of wilderness/camping/fishing and surrounded by the Great Lakes.
Michigan is beautiful, especially the Upper Peninsula.

Thats to bad. We used to go to Michigan every summer for vacation when I was younger. Right off the coast of Lake Michigan in a little town called Ludington to be exact. As stated above, it is a beautiful state.


I wish UA flew mainline to MYR, that way you wouldn't be stuck in a smelly Saturn for 12 hours.

Where did you grow up?
When I was a kid, we lived in Gary, Indiana next to the Indiana State Dunes. .
Indiana sucks compared to Michigan. It was always nice to go drive up to Michigan.
I first learned how to ski up in the U.P. of Michigan.

Michigan is one of my favorite states in the U.S. If the job market was better, then I might make it my home. I actually like the Detroit Area specifically the northern suburbs like Sterling Heights and Utica. The scenery throughout the whole state is amazing and I love the 4 seasons.

Obviously hasn't been to Detroit in a while. I cringe every time I have to cross the bridge back into Canada, and whenever I can, I change the POE from Windsor to Port Huron. Detroit is so slummy these days the seagulls fly upside down over it, since it ain't worth crapping on!

Given how they played football last night, I'd be embarrassed as well. Perhaps they're leaving in search of a real football conference.

Michigan Tops List Of States..........

Sad, but not surprising, given the terrible unemployment situation there (as well as Steve Yzerman no longer skating for the Wings). I grew up in Oakland County and it was always touted as being in the top 5 of the wealthiest counties in the country. I wonder where it ranks nowadays. One claim to fame MI will always have over the other 49 states: You can use your left hand, with the palm facing away, as a pretty accurate map of the state. Gotta love da midden state. I hope things get turned around there.

Even better, though....if you hold your right hand palm-up and fingers pointing up, you've got the lower peninsula. Place your left hand above it, palm-up and fingers pointing to the right, and you've got the U.P.

And...when doing so, if you lower your left hand so that it makes contact with the middle finger on your right hand, voila'! You've got the Mackinac Bridge connecting the two peninsulas.

What are you writing with, your toes?

Lots of good camping in the U.P.. Detroit casinos are a joke. DTW is a cool airport. The drive along lake Michigan is neat.

I'm not a snowmobiler myself, but I was amazed to learn just how extensive a network of snowmobile trails the U.P. has. It's an entire lifestyle up there...from what I understand, entire families get on their sleds in the afternoon/evening and head out until the wee hours.

I understand there are restaurants and lodges where all of these people gather and hang out before bundling up and heading back home. Sounds like a fun time.
