I hear ya about being crazy for the U.P.  upnut. I try to get up there once a month I have dome friends near the town of carney on the west side and near rudyard on the east. ive been looking for a farm to buy up there for quite awhile. just kinda hard to find a operating dairy farm or one thats close to being functional.

I certainly miss the UP, my father would be happy if I moved back.  He would be so happy that he probably would sell the snow plow that he has on his ranger and invite me over for coffee every winter morning!  :snowball:
My brother sold me on doing a sawmill road trip to his land to saw white pine for a new camp and sauna.

Welcome!

This thread sounds like a Michigan conspiracy.

I have an old Michigan up on the hill.

I remember our trip through the UP a couple of years ago ...

We kept seeing these signs for pasties.  What are pasties, the Mrs SawyerBrown asks?  Beats me!  Let's stop for lunch and ask!

So, the Mrs, being the fearless soul that she is, saw a bunch of nice older fellows sitting in a booth, and she walks right up, and asks, "Hey, could you tell me what PAY-stees are?"  Well, that brought quite a laugh from the whole crowd, the one gentlemen said something to the effect of, "Well, these are PAY-stees ... " as he swung his upper torso in a whirling motion.  "Pah-sties are ... " and then he proceeded to tell us the whole story of pasties as the vegetable and meat pies that miners used to carry in their lunch. 

We had to have one ... they were delicious! 

Still haven't got the Mrs SawyerBrown to try PAY-stees, however.   ;D

Yup, I did the same thing at a restaurant at the Soo.  The good part was that I was pointing to the menu.   ;D

As we are going from welcoming michiganmilkman to Michigan slang and food I would mention that Cudighi is another good food found almost exclusively in the UP.  My favorite way is mozzarella, onions and mustard.  Likely only found in the central UP at Ralphs and Lawerys Pastie Shop, both right on Highway 41.  Not the most health conscious food, but when your a hard working yooper, you need the calories ;)

Welcome 3m from da beaver state.  I originated from the frozen part of the land of cheese, lived in da UP for a time,(Iron Mtn/Kingsford) then went to the "great land" (North to Alaska), then ended up out here where the trees touch th sky.  Your procut will do nicely with the 880 providing the heartbeat.  8)
