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. * * * * * *
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
Here’s some shameless plugging for my favorite hotel chain, Wiscohotels.com – 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
Sweet! Now onto the Final Four again.
I shot these quite some time ago, but just found them. While the interior tour of House On The Rock is used in the documentary (to humorous and a bit eery effect), only a smidgen of the exterior, also an awesome place to visit, is used. That place just keeps going and going. Enjoy, and … Continue reading
Awesome Huge Sun Dog Above Rice Lake that I caught a couple of weeks ago. It was one of those too big to be real sort of moments, until you realize what it is. For a brief second I almost thought I was on another planet with two suns, until my fingers started to freeze … Continue reading
No words really needed here. I just find snow on trees fascinating and beautiful. Trees are awesome no matter, snow on them makes it even better. * * * * * *
Had a chance to visit the Northwoods Brewing Company in Eau Claire, which is inside the Northwoods Brew Pub (Near Oakwood Mall). Great beer, great atmosphere, and if it had been summer, a grea view of the river. Love the decor of this place, real Northwoods (of course), almost like something out of Twin Peaks … Continue reading
Wouldn’t that be a blast.
We should be seeing a lot of this during the week as it’s getting warmer here and we Cheeseheads have to represent with what we have on hand.
Driving Highway 25 near Rice Lake and happened to get a dash-cam shot of a snow plow doing its job, and splashing my window. * * * * * *
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. * * * * * *
No surprise there.
In honor of all of those who have served our country on this Veteran’s Day, I’d like to honor those in my family who have served, in particular my Uncle Forest, who was a real badass as can be seen by his numerous medals in the photo below. My father also served (pictured here with … Continue reading
Only fitting, considering he was and will always be the Wizard Of Waukesha.
I met Tim at his studio in Sturgeon Bay and found out that he was also one of the originators of the Ducktape Guys and their series of humorous books on all the things you can do with duck tape (and it’s a lot). Google them when you get the chance, but meanwhile, enjoy some of … Continue reading
