Just to get this started, the content on this page is from home; from the north woods of the midwest. Life here presents unique opportunities and challenges that you don’t find in other regions. There are lots of recreational activities available here, in the many forests and lakes. It’s winter here as I write this, and we’ve just pulled through a “Polar Vortex” weather system. After several days with subzero highs, with little desire to spend time outdoors, it will be at or near 30F today. I’m looking forward to some alpine skiing this weekend, and perhaps some snowshoeing as well.
