More Badger Bar Tales

I met Bill Moen, the author of these two humorous and fascinating Wisconsin Bar stories books, at the Valkyrie Brewery in Dallas (Dallas WISCONSIN, that is). For any lover of good humor, these books are great.  If you love humor, beer, and Wisconsin history in all of its often odd realms, then these are a … Continue reading

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

Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival Fun

Curd Fest Banner

Ellsworth is, of course, the cheese curd capital of Wisconsin, and frankly, the world.  I covered how cheese curds are made at their factory for the documentary, and decided I had to check out the Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival to see just how much people love them.  They do, even having them on their pizzas, … Continue reading

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

Duel Cheesehead Connection To Shotgun Lovesongs Novel

Shotgun Lovesongs CROP

Interestingly, there is a duel Cheesehead connection to the recently published Nickolas Butler debut novel “Shotgun Lovesongs”, that being that the author lives in Northern Wisconsin (in a rural area next door to a buffalo farm), and that the books cover photo was taken by, well, me, also from Wisconsin and a proud Cheesehead.  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

Winter Sun & Sky

AWE Farm WINTER Sunset

Considering how cold and cloudy this winter has been, thought a few shots of bright sun, albeit low in the horizon and during winter, would warm the thoughts of some. * * * * * *

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

Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese

Cheese Underground Screen Shot

Here’s a killer article on cheese Terroir in the Drifless Region of Wiscosnin.  I’ve been to a good deal of these Dairies and Cheese producers, and I have to agree that the area has a taste all its own.  Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese. via Cheese Underground: Unglaciated Cheese. * * *

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
