The town of Trenary, rather Mathias Township is approximately 554 people. A little gem of a community that must be darn near the geographic center of the Upper Peninsula. However, on the last Saturday of February the town’s size likely quintuples, if not more.

From the great Labor Day adventure and being a part of the MQT Plaidurday this year, I learned all about Yooper Steez and its beginnings.

“Something About a Pasty”

Nov 22, 2014 | Leave a comment

After walking up Sugarloaf Mountain to enjoy the sunset, I had built up an appetite. Where else to go for dinner than to Jean Kay’s for a pasty. Before feasting, I thought to myself, “Why not make a hyperlapse video of this?” The entire pasty took 11 minutes and 37 seconds to eat, or about 37 seconds in hyperlapse mode. When I got home I realized it needed some music and began some research. I found this amazing song … Read more
