Talking with author Kath Usitalo about the 2nd edition of "100 Things to Do in the Upper Peninsula Before You Die"

Whether you're a native Yooper or a visitor, there's a new edition of a book out now to help you complete your bucket list.

Author Kath Usitalo's second edition of "100 Things to Do in the Upper Peninsula Before You Die" is out now and holds a wealth of information about Michigan's U.P. The book is designed to help those who've never been "up north" to plan outings and activities, while containing enough hidden gems for a Yooper to discover. It's divided into destinations, attractions, food and drink, and more.

Bi-peninsular Kath Usitalo spent time across the state of Michigan in various places but now lives in the Upper Peninsula, in Naubinway. She writes about the Great Lakes State for a variety of print and online publications and her own e-zine, GreatLakesGazette.com.

Kurt Hauswirth chatted with Kath by phone:
