Where I'm From


I am from the northwoods of Vilas county,

from lake water to the woods snowy trails (clean crisp water and freshly fallen snow).


I am from boats to snowmobiles,

From eighty degree weather and swimsuits, to fifteen below zero and snowsuits.


I am from moving to Manitowish Waters from Presque Isle,

from having no friends to ones that are sisters.


I am from trying new things,

from jumping off a 80 ft cliff to learning to wakesurf, to pulled on paddle boards behind a ski boat.


I am from make the most of my 24 hour day,

from boating on the ten lake Manitowish chain in summer to snowmobiling to three towns in one day in winter.


I am from Beeler and Peterson,

from getting the job done to take your time.


I am from appreciate everything you are fortunate to have,

from having my own car to snowmobile.


I am from my time being absorbed with basketball,

from it consuming my life to not enjoyable.


I am from a close-knit but standoffish family,

from knowing all family members to a handful.


I am from the outdoors,

from lake water to the woods snowy trails (clean crisp water and freshly fallen snow).
