Neenah Foundry 01

Okay, so the title is silly, but there’s really only one place in the United States that makes manhole covers for pretty much everyone all around the country, and that’s the Neenah Foundry in Neenah.  I got to take a tour of the place with camera in hand, got exceptional footage (like one of those … Continue reading

Goodbye My Texan Cheesehead Friend

Craig_Jen_13

To All,  Our “Cheeseheads: The Documentary” Co-Producer, and one of my closest friends Craig Miller decided not to wake up on the morning of November 7th 2012 (he died in his sleep, but I’m trying to be humorous about it like he would expect of me), so I’m a bit down for the time being. … Continue reading

The Painted Steers Of New Glarus…

New Glarus Steer 03

When visiting New Glarus Brewery a while back (photos of the brewery coming soon), it was evident thay they love their steers, likely because of the Swiss heritage the town relishes, being known as Little Switzerland.  Further, our Minong friend Jack Link’s Beef Jerky also has a factory in New Glarus.  Whatever their reasons for … Continue reading

Dufeck 03

We stopped by Dufeck Wood Products in Denmark Wisconsin to see how they make the wooden cheese boxes and get some heavy machinery cutting wood as terrific B-roll.  Turns out they make a heck of a lot more than cheese crates and boxes.  Check out the photos below and if you are interested in getting … Continue reading

Rhinelander’s County Fair: It’s Good In The Northwoods

Rhinelander_Fair_02

We went by the Rhinelander County Fair last week in order to see how the Northwoods people do it, and they certainly do it their own way.  It was like being in the woods, but with ferris wheels and carnival games, and of course Hodag’s hiding in the trees (more on that later).  It was … Continue reading

Packerpalooza – May 1st At Will’s Northwoods Inn In Chicago

Will's_Northwoods_01

Super Bowl XLV – Super Bowl Victory Celebration Cheeseheads Style!

SB45_Victory_01jpg

Super Bowl XLV rocked on many levels, but it was a nail-biter as well.  To that end, we spent so much energy and effort filming the glorious happenings all around Arlington these past five days that we barely have the energy to say anything in words right now, so we’ll let these fellow cheeseheads tell … Continue reading

Wisconsin Tree House Redefines ‘Hideout’ in Onalasak (Video)

Treehouse3

When we were young, we had to build our own tree forts in the ravine behind the back yard of our Cameron house.  Nothing near as luxurious as this one, but then we also had the pride of building it ourselves from things we found around the yard, or all over town for that matter. … Continue reading
