Toivo, near Chesterton, Indiana on Saturday, April 19, 2003 - 12:19 am:

How refreshing to see these waters after driving through hectic Chicago this afternoon. As you can see, I decided to push on instead of going back up north for the weekend. Besides, if I ever miss home, I just take a 'virtual tour' through the Pasty Cam, next best thing to being there.

We've had Bond Falls on these pages in the past, but I don't recall this wooden bridge in any previous shots. Maybe Z-Man or some of the folks at the Road Commission can enlighten us about it.

Charlie will be along with a shoebox memory on Sunday, Lord willin' and the creeks don't rise. So let me say an early Happy Easter to everyone.
Goodnight from Indiana and good morning from da U.P. trip notes in

I was just thinking (which can be a dangerous thing)
about your 50 state visit. Now it's possible for the beater to make it to Alaska I'm sure, but how are you gonna drive it to Hawaii?

On this Easter weekend, may the gods bless you, and may you be happy!

Toivo, Welcome to Indiana. Chesterton is about an hours drive from my hometown of Mishawaka, home of the Cavemen. I hope you enjoy your trip thru IN as much as I enjoy PastyCam and the UP.
Happy Easter to all those who make this site so great and to all who enjoy it.

On my annual spring trip to bond falls I was presented with the new bridges (2) at the bottom of the falls. The old bridges took a whooping last year during the spring melt down and were in poor shape. Looking down into the falls the view has really changed with these new additions. I think there was a story in the Ontonagon herald last week about this, but I have not read it yet.

Hello Toivo from Chesterton! I'm enjoying your trip too! Hope you can head to Lake Michigan and take a peek at the Indiana dunes! (Loons have been migrating through lately.) Chesterton is the "gateway to the Indiana dunes." Happy Easter everyone!

Alaska? I want to see him DRIVE to Hawaii!

Hmmm... There's hope for that Pasty sharing event in Georgia!

Wow what a picture of Bond Falls Looking forward to seeing it again this year one of my favorite spots. Best ice cream cones too.

HEY Toivo, You can put your car on a steamship in AK, 10 days later you have your car in Honolulu. Only bad thing is there is no place to park it! I think it would be easier to fly and then have dem bro's haul you around Kalakaua Ave. in those rickshas. Now that would make a cool photo! Practice the Hawaiian "kuinka se mene" by holding the hand down and shaking only the thumb and pinkie and say "howzit bro?" If you do drive to Alaska, can I be your navigator? I have driven it three times, it's only 6000 miles from Covington. The only place I got lost was in the underground parking lot of Saskatoon(don't ask). The ferry from Seattle was memorable. The stop in Haines in October was when thousands of eagles were feeding on the nearby river. The drive over the Elias Mt. range was scary in winter but beautiful. Everyone should do this trip for sure and plan on at least the whole summer to get to see the vast land called the last frontier, the most incredible place, Alaska.

Haypress Dam. Does anyone have any pictures they'd like to share? We'd love to see some.

By Jim, Twin Cities on Saturday, April 19, 2003 - 03:05 pm:

I just had my first taste of Trenary Toast. I ordered some after the conversations about it a couple of weeks ago. I dunked them properly in coffee. FANTASTIC! I enjoyed the cinnamon best, the sugar next, and the plain would be a good base for a nice marmalade. Before they got here, I found some cinnamon toast made locally and some rusks imported from Holland. NO COMPARISON! I guess that the birds will benefit from those two. I now know what you all meant. I'm a fan from now on. Thanks for the tip.

Once again, Happy and Blessed Easter to all.

By Doug - Wixom, MI on Saturday, April 19, 2003 - 05:05 pm:

Try that trenary toast with a bit of butter warmed in the microwave for just a few, and then settle down with a coffee and the taost and browse pasty.cam for a while. Can almost feel those pictures! :o)

THANK YOU Pine Street Boy for the Slovenian Easter Sausage. ....My mother used to make this sausage every year for Easter before she passed away 12 years ago. Have not had it since and I am not a cook, but will have my sister copy the receipe from this site. Thank You! Thank You!

Wishing Everyone a very HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER!!

By Proud Yooper - MI on Saturday, April 19, 2003 - 11:31 pm:

Wow! Beautiful bridge and the falls. We haven't been to Bond Falls in over 20 years. We'll have to put it on our agenda this summer.

By Bob- farmington Hills on Saturday, April 19, 2003 - 11:43 pm:

To John-Canton
Go to http://www.michigandnr.com/parksandtrails/ParksandTrailsInfo.asp?id=412 for directions to the falls.

I was reading the WLUCTV6 website and it said the DNR was making a parking area for the handicapped. I'm definetely going up there when I'm home in Oct.

By Ray Don Gass on Sunday, April 20, 2003 - 06:19 am:

Any fish under the bridge? Probably. Some of the biggest speckled trout I've caught (and kept and took home and ate) have been under the shady waters of bridges like this one. Catch one, come back in an hour or so and maybe you'll catch another that was among the many spooked by the first one leaving.

By John-canton on Sunday, April 20, 2003 - 09:00 pm:

Thanks Bob!

Really nice that the Power Company tranferred the poperty to the State. Looks like our tax dollars where well spent. However, as my dad would say, the transfer pays no taxes to Ontnogan County now. Tax dollars lost in a county where we need revenue. Jim Johnson Bruce Crossing, Mi........

To PINE STREET BOY--Imagine my surprise
and delight when searching for anyone else
who had heard of Easter Sausage and finding
my dad's own recipe! Awesome to see--glad
that others are enjoying it as much as we do.
