Marquette, Mich., has long been one of my favorite destinations for recreational travels.
On each trip, I've been impressed by the local enthusiasm for outdoor ventures, from paddling to ice climbing.
Somehow, I've missed out on the skateboarding.
Students at Northern Michigan University set a record over the weekend for most participants in a skateboard parade - 341.
The achievement is almost enough to head north and tip a pint in salute.
