Gotta Love The New Wisco Hotel In Fond du Lac

An HI Express 01

I finally got to stay at the new Wicso Hotels Holiday Inn Express in Fond du Lac a short while back, and it was awesome.  Exceptionally designed for the business traveller such as myself, well not a business traveller so much as traveling on business.  But you get the point.  It has a flavor of … Continue reading

Ten Wonderful Wisconsin Oddities

Confused Arrows ELEVA

The title says it rather clearly, these are ten shots of some of the wonderful oddities I’ve encountered in my travels around Wisconsin making this documentary (that is now finished, working on release screenings and dates for this fall).  There’s a little note below each photo to let you know a bit about it. * … Continue reading

Wisconsin Senate Approves 70 MPH Speed Limit

Featured Image -- 4496

Nice to know, if you’re trying to get somewhere fast, but I prefer to drive the back roads of Wisconsin as you never know what you’ll find, be it interesting, odd, or fun. And then there’s that whole “it’s so utterly beautiful” thing. * * * * * *

Driving The Driftless

White Barn WOW

Here’s some killer shots I took while driving the Driftless Area recently.  On a sunny day, it’s really hard not to take a good picture in this state.  Honestly, it’s pointless in talking about it.  Just look at the photos and you’ll see what I mean.  So I’ll stop babbling now and let you enjoy … Continue reading

WISCO Holiday Inn Express Opening Soon

Wisco Holiday Inn  EXPRESS

Here’s some shameless plugging for my favorite hotel chain, – I’ll be in FDL for the grand opening of their new Holiday Inn Express at the end of April.  Looking forward to checking out their new location, and to get the now finished (minus legal and what not) documentary in front of a crowd. … Continue reading

Nice Houses In New Richmond

New Richmond Houses 03

I don’t know why I am posting this other than that I ran across these photos recently and thought what nice houses they were.  Really, this is probably the least important posting ever, but they still are quite lovely homes. * * * * * *

Yummies From New London

Sara Lee NL 05

Came across these pictures from at least two years ago when I drove through New London at dusk.  I had no idea Sara Lee and Hillshire Farms had such a big pressence in Wisconsin.  But it makes perfect sense since making great food is second nature to us.  Got a pile of brand new photos … Continue reading

Military Pride In Appleton

Appleton Legion 02

These were taken a while back (I can tell from the camera used).  You see these types of military displays and tributes all around Wisconsin, as it should be. * * * * * *

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

My travel sidekick Lexxy (the blow up cow to promote Wisconsin Cheese), always seemed to get the best view of everything.  Ok, just having a little fun with her.  Ashland was definitely my kind of town, and South Shore Brewing my kind of place to grab a great Wisconsin Beer.  Another neat thing are the … Continue reading

Travel Wisconsin “Airplane” Spoof Is A Fun One

TW Airplane Spoof

Check out the new Travel Wisconsin commercial, a fun tribute to the Airplane franchise brought to the world by theZucker Brothers, dear and proud Cheeseheads.  The Zucker brothers were born and raised in Shorewood, Wisconsin, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar played for the Milwaukee Bucks, helping the Bucks win their only NBA championship. * * *   … Continue reading

Harley Davidson Despite The Winter Snow

Harley SNOW 04

I know, we gotta pack the Harley Davidson up every winter and leave it be in the garage.  But you can still stop by the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee in the winter and get your fix.  Here’s a few cool shots from last year. * * *   * * *

The Hazelwood Historic House Museum In Green Bay

GB Oldest House 01

Known as the oldest home in Green Bay, the Hazelwood House, now an historical museum, has a pretty awesome view of the Fox River, though since I was there on an overcast day, the photos don’t do it justice.  It’s one of those neat little delights you can stumble upon, nestled away in a place … Continue reading

Wisconsin’s Very Own Freedom Tower, Well Sort Of

Freedom Water Tower

Freedom isn’t just a word, an ideology, or the name of a skyscraper in New York City, it’s also the name of a small town straight north of Appleton if you’re taking the back roads up to Green Bay.  It’s a fun little town to stop in on, and the local grocer (like every small … Continue reading

The Morgue Haunted House

MORGUE Oneida 05

I know it’s not Holloween, but stumbling upon some fun pictures while driving back roads near DePere, I came across an old school house renamed The Morgue, and took several photos of it.  Interestingly enough, there was also a church right next to it.  After finding the pictures, I looked up what it might be … Continue reading

Blacktop Back Road Beauty

Blacktop 01

Nothing much to say about these shots other than, damn Wisconsin can be beautiful to drive around.  Even the blacktop roads can be a thing of beauty.  Enjoy the summer travel views during this cold winter. * * * * * *

Fifield – Phonetically Funny

Fifield 01

Found these shots I took as I drove through the very tiny town of FiField and the name struck me as phonetically funny.  Of course Wisconsin is no stranger to odd sounding or hard to pronounce town names like Lac Du Flambeau (Yeah, we who love Lambeau Field understand that one, but to an outsider, … Continue reading

A Snow Covered Small Town

Impact 7 Building

Almena is a small town that you’ll miss if you blink off Highway 8 in Barron County.  One reason to keep your eyes open and pull over if traveling that way is the Almena Meat Company.  Try the double smoked beef snack sticks and, if you love smoked sausages, you’ll love these even more.  I … Continue reading
