You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

The Ugliest U.P. Ever!


Saturday, Nov 24, 2007 from Baraga, Michigan

There is no question about it, this is the ugliest and worst representation of I have ever seen of the Upper Peninsula, not to mention of Michigan. C’mon! (found it on google)

Upper Peninsula left off Michigan map

We are no longer a mitten, but the profile of a very sad man... perhaps Bart Simpson?

I agree with Stephanie.....sure does look like Bart.....and All we can say is yup, we get the short end of stick when it comes to map making....always.

Wow, to me it looks like they forgot us all together. That green blob,?the lakes Michigan and Superior. What a sad state of affairs.

That is the most ridiculous map of Michigan I have ever seen. Ummm I am wondering being there is no longer 'the Straits of Mackinac' does that mean I don't have to pay bridge fare anymore? Most of the people I talk to on-line have no idea there is an Upper Peninsula and a lower Peninsula to Michigan, so I guess it was one of them that drew this map.

Yeah, it's pathetic. The other states are at least recognizable! So now that we see that there's some YOOPERS here, we need to press Facebook for a UP NETWORK!!!!!!!!!

Comment by Rachael
From Marquette, MI

Haha. I agree that it looks ridiculous, but I figured out that it's because they just included all of the territory (land and water) that belongs to Michigan. They definitely could have just drawn a dotted line though.

Comment by Cecil
From THE UP, MI

UMMM that is NOT what michigan looks like. Whoever drew this map must have some serious problems.

Comment by Matthew
From Unionville, MI

Where did the thumb go? It's pretty bad when one of the most recognizable states from space is so deformed on a map.

Comment by Jessie
From Marquette, MI

Hey, at least we are ON the map! I've seen maps where the U.P. is melded with Canada :o

Comment by Samantha
From Escanaba, MI

i remember in back in Jr. High we spent all this money to get everyone individual desk maps and the U.P. was in Canada, honestly are geographical experts that stupid?

Comment by Kimberly
From Hermansville, MI

This has got to be the worst map I have ever seen, other than the ones that completely omit us. Wonder what the heck the maker was on, or doing at the time, I mean come on, seriously! Making a not never to use this person's maps in my classroom either!

Comment by Alicia

This means I won't have to pay taxes anymore! Hurrah.

Comment by Katie
From Sault Ste. Marie, MI

The U.P. is at least shown on this map. Sometimes we're not even included in the US!
