Retire to the Northwoods of Northern Wisconsin? Are You Kidding!?

You wouldn’t think that many folks retire to the tip of Wisconsin. Most folks who are facing retirement look for some place warmer. But I’m retired and I live at the tip of Wisconsin in Iron County. I wouldn’t live anywhere else.

You can’t beat the summers in the Northwoods of Northern Wisconsin. It’s common to have less than a dozen days in the 90’s. But you can always count on cool evenings with some being a bit chilly. Who needs AC? With the windows open at night, and the cool night air and the sound of loons calling across the water, what can be better than that? Would I trade that for a hot, sticky night in one of the warmer southern states with the house closed up and AC on all night? Nope.

The winters can be long. But the winter temperatures are not much different than those in Chicago. What makes the Northwoods preferable are the opportunities to fly across the frozen lakes on a snowmobile cutting fresh powder. Or spend a calm, sunny, winter day on the ice catching walleye on a jig pole while listening to he football game on a radio. And to keep fit, the cross country ski trails and four downhill ski resorts are close at hand.

What do you suppose retired folks do in winter in the southern states? How can you do anything in winter without plenty of snow? Outdoor recreation, regardless of season (did I mention that we have all four seasons here instead of the two that they have in warmer climates?) is plentiful in the Northwoods. So if you love the outdoors, like me, you need to include the Northwoods in your retirement plan.

      No I don’t. Everything on my site is original. I always figure if someone wants to keep the material at their fingertips, they only need to link to the blog from their site and they have have it.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    I’m curious if it’s okay to borrow a paragraph of this article to use for my powerpoint project.
