Any Yoopers on the boards? Besides me?
I know 7 yoopers (none are in my family), but they don't frequent this board. Does that count?
Certified natural born Yooper here, but living below the Mason-Dixon line now.
I'm from Pelkie.
Yooper in the house. The outhouse. Because we don't have indoor plumbing.
I am fueling the fire that burns bright from the gasoline of ignorance by double posting. Yoopers can't use computers. Yoopers double post.
Hey, at least you own it.
I've been a troll since the day I was born.
Aw, I'm sorry, man.
Who has been a converted Yooper for about 12 years now. Went to NMU and now live in Marquette. Summer and fall here rule.
Reside in FL now, but my first 20 years were spent on Drummond Island
I spent six years of my life at Michigan Tech does that count.
Anybody that went through 6 H/H winters has got to be an honorary Yooper and no doubt a successful engineer.
for a yooper because i have a accent from living the majority of my life in canada....
what do you mean, eh?
I practically grew up on Lake Superior, spending every summer there between Marquette and Munising by the Rock River (where HO1 comes out of the wilderness). I am hoping to inherit my grandparents cottage there one day. Best beaches on the lake.
My grandma is a yooper from Newberry. Thank god she decided to move to Florida...
Wish I was still living there.
I grew up in Escanaba and lived there until I went U of M. I am now living in the LP and reporting all technological advances and suspicious activity back to headquarters in Munising.
I'm calling shenanigans. Every Yooper knows that headquarters are not in Munising anymore!
Shhhh! We've already said way too much.
but my Finnish is terrible.
Sort of an honory yooper; my dad grew up in Trout Creek/ Bruce Crossing, and went to NMU, so we went up there 2-3 times each year to see family. Great place for kids to have fun.
My family has a cabin near Bruce Crossing. (Norwich Road between M-28 and Lake Superior ring a bell?) Bruce Crossing is a classic U.P. town - it's like stepping back in time while you're there.
We always looked forward to stopping at Gramma Grooters for the Granny's Omelette after the 9 hour drive. It was a sad day when it burned down.
My dad also grew up in Bruce Crossing, how funny
Have lived away since '96 but get back every summer.
We've own a family cottage on Sugar Island (currently my father's summer home) that we get to as often as possible (all summer as a kid). It's awesome for "White Thanksgivings" as well.
We have a summer home near SSM on the Canadian side; in 20 years I've been scouting the UP one golf course at a time...
I thought the UP only HAD 1 golf course?!
appletown,i have friends in wakefield.Reveal yourself if you will.
who do you know in Wakefield?
around Cedar Lake, and on Drummond Island...
I was born in raised in Marquette, and am currently a student at U of M. Just got back home to God's country for break.
My NCAA created school is the Upper Peninsula University Yoopers, who play in the Big Ten with a main rival of Wisconsin. Our logo is a buck deer, and the colors are Superior Blue and Copper.
Does this count for anything?
I've always wanted to check out the UP. Farthest north I've been is Traverse City (embarassing, I know). One of my brother's friends goes to Northern, says the summers aren't much different than they are back home (SE Michigan) but the winters are absurd.
I graduated from Tech and am awaiting a job while living in Marquette. Get me the hell out of here!!! ;)
I'm a part time yooper...currently go to Lake Superior State
Does that count?
Dad is from Marquette, we'd travel up there for christmas to see a lot of family there. They would welcome us by putting us to work shoveling the driveway.
...spent last two years of HS in Houghton and am a Gremlin, Class of '88.
You missed out on being taught history by my grandfather by about two years, he retired in 1985.
No, but my mom is, so I've learned the correct pronunciation of "sauna" and "pastie" - and it's always bugged me when people draw a picture of the Lower Peninsula alone and call it a "map of Michigan."
a seriously mangled left hand to do a 2-handed map of Michigan for someone.
No, you can just turn your hand sideways and stick up your thumb. But I'm talking more about businesses.
I live under the bridge (therefore a troll) but enjoy hunting up North. When we reach Deer(beer)camp, the locals like to remind everyone that the "turdy point buck" likes to roam these here woods, eh.
Someday I hope to see this legendary monster.
