      • Video of the underwater log segment can be seen at http://www.georgianbaywetwood.com/.

      • According to the St. Louis Business Journal, Mike spent 13 hours baling painted siding and aluminum cans, sorting steel, stripping copper wire and loading railcars when he worked at Cash's Scrap Metal and Iron.

      • In the credits, special thanks was given to Hampton Inn of Muskegon, Stu Block, Chad Billingsley and Heidi Deakin.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Mike is disappointed that chimney sweeping in reality has no top hats or kids singing and dancing. (He is given a top hat at the end.)

        This is in reference to the 1964 musical film Mary Poppins in which Dick Van Dyke plays a singing and dancing chimney sweep that frolics with the kids.
