    I live close to the UP border, just south of Marinette WI/Menominee MI. So Pasties are not hard to come by around here. Although there is a place in Marquette (and Ishpeming) that has ruined them for me. After eating their pasties no other one is good anymore. Lawry's. http://www.lawryspasties.com/ But if you can recommend a shop near the Houghton are that is good I am all for it. I get up there more often than I am over by Marquette.

    Decent pasties at Toni's Country Kitchen in Laurium (next to Calumet) for under $4. Great breakfast with homemade bread there and cheap. Won't eat breakfast anywhere except there unless it's closed. Pick up a dozen 4-5" peanut butter, oatmeal, raisin or spice cookies with no preservatives for under $4. Kids will love them. Loading Zone in Lake Linden - take M-26 to Calumet/Laurium instead of US 41. Hut a mile north of Calumet along US 41 has pasties and many other things. Ambassador on main drag in Houghton. The Library has food and brews own beer on road down towards canal from main drag in middle of Houghton.

    Now for the real pasty lover test. Do you use gravy or ketchup on your pasty?

    When I was a kid we went up to Copper Harbor for vacations. I absolutely love the up. What was the name of the mountian there, sugar loaf I believe?

    Fished Lake Fanny Hoe there at Fort Wilkins in Copper Harbor many times along with the Harbor and the creek going into Lake Superior. Used to live my weekends and evenings out in the Keweenaw County where Copper Harbor is located. There's a total of only 2,500 people out in that entire county.

    You mean Mountain Drive right out of Copper Harbor? They have a ski hill on the Lac La Belle Road about 10 miles back towards Calumet now.

    You didn't go all the way up there from Texas, did you?

    PS: See you do cycles. Ever think about coming up to the big Fayetteville Arkansas Bikes, Blues and Barbecue Event in October? 1,000's of bikes here over the 3-4 day event. As I understand there are some nice rides out into the Ozark foothills and other hilly places. They should have a web site. Check it out.

    Neither. I eat them plain. Wash it down with some Birch Beer soda.

    That's a long day trip to Houghton or Calumet if you go back and forth and work on units besides. Add a little snow anywhere north of Crystal Falls and a few deer herds along the way just adds interest. Do you have to draw the short straw in order to get to do that ride?

    No, I have to fight other guys to get it sometimes. Except in the winter. Most of the trips up there are for part or all of a week. We generally do the Marquette area for a few days then over to Houghton for a few. We go as far east as Manistique and Munising, and west to Ontonagon and Ironwood in the UP, and do the entire state of WI.

    It's Brockway Mountain, I went to Tech for a few years and went up there several times.

    You are correct, that is another name. My reference should probably have been more correctly stated as "Brockway Mountain Drive" which is the scenic drive and not the mountain (but is it really a mountain and at least 2,500' high?).

    When at Tech? Engineering? Sounds like you are from the Mitten - i.e. NOT a Yupper. I graduated in Math sometime in the middle of last century although I took some EE stuff including EE for dummies.

    PS: Just checked your local out on Mapquest. We used to drive right past you on the way to our RV between Newaygo and White Cloud. Also checked out answer to my question about mountainhood. Not!!!!!!

    Not even close to mountainhood. For all of the mountain looking hills in Arkansas, there is really only one mountain, Mount Magazine. But it looks like a good sized one due to the relative difference from peak to river valley below which is maybe 400-500' above sea level. You can look the turkey vultures in the eye as they cruise by. The relative height is over 2,000' whereas Brockway is a mere 600-700' to Lake Superior. But it still looks high for that area.

    To show that one does not need a mountain to endanger oneself, college students have either injured or killed themselves on The Cliffs closer in toward Calumet in the past - site of one of the earliest copper mines in the area. A little bit of booze and poor preparation/training is all one really needs.
