Born and raise in WI. Spent my entire life here with the exception of the time I spent in the USAF. And yes, there are mosquito's, but at least we have adopted them as the state bird . . . .

I lived there for 11-12 years. It’s a beautiful state except for the packers. Lots of lakes, can’t beat the Friday night fish fry’s, eager women, and fantastic hunting and fishing.

Ya'know, if they built really tall fences around Milwaukee and Madison , it'd be a nice state.

You do remember you were asked to leave...

It looks like our yellow "Don't Tread On Me" state flag has become pretty popular too. What's not to like? 16,000 lakes, miles of trout streams, great big deer, all kinds of free to the public recreational land, affordable housing, good schools, no hurricanes, earthquakes or tornadoes, low crime rate, available jobs, great work ethic, gun friendly, Packers tzone, great medical, friendly people, good infrastructure, smaller rural atmosphere, clean air, Great Lakes, scenic, low cost of living...


My other auto is a .45

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory

The 16,000 lakes is comical. WI counts ponds and wide spots in the rivers as a lake.

But some of them sure are fun.

When driving the back roads in Wisconsin, I was taken with the similarity to Missouri.

There’s a decent amount of Gadsden flags flying in Wisconsin.

And every person flying them wears a mask to the grocery store and takes their pistol off to drink a beer or go to the post office.

I’m trying to understand how this blue flag looks like Colonel Gadsden’s yellow flag. Thought I’d shoulder the task of asking the hard questions.

I lived in northern Wisconsin several years. I agree with all that. But also there are three seasons--July, August, and Winter.


Don't blame me. I voted for Trump.

I live in the central part.... and have just over 5000 acres of public land within 5 miles of my house.... I have never been with out work.. and the cost of living has always been cheap enough to save money after the bills have been paid... land has been priced within reach of the normal guy... I always have enough money at the end of the day to take at least one trip out west to hunt elk or deer, and some years, two trips, one to Ontario and the other out west.

The only down side ? You can't sell out and move away... houses every where else are 2-3 times the cost of houses here...


If a good dog will last 15 years.... and a pick up will last you 10 years... then, by my math... I'm only good for three more trucks and two more dogs before I'm done.

They only win.... when they cheat.
