HI THERE FELLOW TRAVELLERS & PERHAPS, YOOPERS. YES, YOPPERS. THAT'S SOMEONE FROM THE UPPER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN ------ IN CONTRAST TO SOMEONE FROM LOWER MICHIGAN -- WHO WE WOULD REFER TO AS A "TROLL" -- LIKE, IN DOWN UNDER.

I'M BORN & RAISED FROM ESCANABA (ESKY) & ALSO SPEND MUCH TIME IN THE HIAWATHA NATIONAL FOREST (CAMP 7 AREA) NOT FAR FROM THE STURGEON RIVER, WHERE FAMED AUTHOR HEMINWAY, OFTEN SPENT TIME IN HIS YOUTH & WROTE THEREOF.

ESCANABA IS OFTEN CALLED THE BANNA BELT, GIVEN IT'S LOCALE BETWEEN LAKES MICHIGAN & SUPERIOR. WE HAVE COOL SUMMER TEMP'S & WARM WINTER TEMP'S IN THE WINTER, IN COMPARISON TO THE REST OF THE U.P.

THIS LAND, MUCH LIKE THE GREAT LAND OF ALASKA, IS AWESOME -- ESPECIALLY FROM MID-AUGUST TO LATE NOVEMBER.

ON OCCASION THE REGION HAS ITS "MOMENTS' BUT NOTHING LIKE FURTHER NORTH IN MARQUETTE (70 MILES) WHERE THE SNOWFALL ALMOST DOUBLES IN THE WINTER, OR THE COPPER COUNTRY (HOUGHTON/HANCOCK/CALUMET) WHERE AVERAGE SNOWFALL IS 300 INCHES JUST 180 MILES TO THE NORTH. YES, I'VE SEEN SNOW BEHIND THE FORD GARGAGE IN JULY !!
