Hi Everyone! I'm new to the U.P. My husband and I just moved to Gladstone in June when he started a new job in Escanaba. Originally for Mt. Morris, north of Flint. I loved my first summer and fall up here.
Happy New Year!

hi, newbie here from iron county trying to figure this site out. i really wanted to chart and journal my progress. im having a hard time figuring out the nutrition because i make everything from scratch and takes time to chart the nutrition,is there an easier way without buying prepackaged. exercise is easier to chart. well i think i can discipline myself on the foods but i like a cocktail thats where my true discipline will be focused.
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL AND GOOD LUCK IN YOUR GOALS

Merry Christmas to all. We can be grateful for a Christmas that wasn't 0 degrees. No blizzard or 40mph winds. Could have been just a teeny weeny warmer but hey, its the UP right? I'm in the Ishpeming area, it was sunny which was a plus. I'm not an outdoorsy person but I should be, at least in the winter anyway. I usually leave the house for work, the store and once in a while on a warmer day, I go see my horse. Snowshoeing, skiing ... sound like fun. My friend tore all the ligaments in her knee skiing and she was off work for 3.5 months. I can't risk that. If the weather was more like today, I think I'd be more likely to venture out. Well anyway, Merry Christmas.

Sault Sainte Marie chiming in!

Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome
danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly
that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful
even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always
tomorrow.

Christmas greetings from Marquette. . .
There are at least two sparks people here. As for where to snowshoe in Marquette, try the Fit Strip at Park Cemetery, the bike paths or the road/trails around Presque Isle park. I've been in the UP for about 33 years. The trick to surviving winter is good quality warm jackets, pants and boots. It also helps to have an indoor hobby, and to go somewhere without snow for a week or two in Feb. or March!

Snowshoeing rocks! I don't really know the best places to do in Marquette though. I just moved here about 8 months ago from a different part of the UP so I still need to explore the area.

Ice skating is also noteworthy. And I love the outdoor rink here!

I'm in the Marquette area...just inland enough to bear the brunt of the infamous "lake effect snow". I do like winter...to an extent. I like to snowshoe but I'm not real wild about snowblowing. Of course, this is December...ask me how much I like winter in February/March and I'll likely have a very different answer. :)
