Have You Been to My Church? Pictured Rocks’ Chapel Rock

You can absolutely decide what kind of day you're going to have. Will you choose to be disappointed in the 40-degree September weather, the wind, the still surprising throngs of humanity parked and hiking everywhere, as the water bottle you spilled in your backpack leaks through to your ass, or will you stop to admire the beauty all around you, [...]

Don’t Be a Fun-Sucker! Be the Change.

I got the coolest, most inspirational, fun idea from a Facebook friend last night that I couldn’t wait to participate in - the Secret Sister Gift Exchange! That is, until some people tried to suck all the fun out of it. Fun suckers. If you remember my Yooper Postcard Experiment from earlier this year, you’ll know that I totally dig [...]

Christmas in Rapid River

I just love it when I have one of those “unexpected” days - when you have a whole day of fun-ness planned, but along the way an unforeseen hand grabs you and guides you to people and experiences that you never would have found on your own. And it makes your day better than you could have ever planned or [...]

Yooper Social Experiment

Has this ever happened to you? You have what you think is the most original, bestest idea ever, only to Google it and find out that someone totally one-upped you years ago. Yup. Happened to me today. I was thinking about a thank you card I received recently, and it reminded me what a wonderful feeling it is to be [...]

The Eagle Has Landed – Or Was He Abducted?

  Strictly speaking, the eagle in our story never really "landed." I just really like that phrase. More like, a climber carefully scooped him out of his nest up high in a tree, tucked him in a rucksack, and lowered him down to the ground where the other researcher was waiting to take speedy measurements and samples. I guess you [...]

Why I Haven’t Visited Antarctica…Yet

“So what places haven’t you visited yet?” one of my co-workers randomly asked me the other day. Funny he should ask, because recently I’d been thinking about Antarctica, one of the two “A” continents left on my visit list. I tell myself that it’s the trip I’m planning on taking to celebrate my retirement, but in reality, I’ve been putting [...]

A Hiawatha Horror Story

“Sixty seconds my ass!” - and a picture of a tent in the text message - is how my story began. Spring has sprung in the Yoop, which means it’s that time of year again: Cooter Camp! Each April on opening trout weekend, a bunch of my girlfriends and I (Mumma included) take to the Hiawatha National Forest armed with [...]

Da Best of Grand Cayman, Yooper Style, Eh?

Fellow Yoopers, I know you can relate. Each and every one of us probably brags to our warm-weather friends how “you gotta be tough to live in the UP,” and that “winters up here serve to weed out the weak.” But by the time February rolls around, what we’d really like to do is take that millionth shovelful of snow [...]

Yooper Pub Crawl

Maybe it was because my parents said they were going on a beer run, or maybe it was because no one in our family has done anything truly crazy lately. Or maybe it was just because it was frickin’ 65 DEGREES outside on Saturday. Whatever the reason, I had this brilliant idea involving booze and the great outdoors: I didn’t [...]
