The U.P is an awesome place you are a lucky man!
Dan,I always say If you want to live here you just need to make your own job that's what we did. But a more honest answer is this is a rural area jobs are different. Many people work two jobs or seasonal work for the most part our work is not what defines who we are like it does in more metropolitan areas of the country. We work to take care of ourselves and our families and very seldom do we discuss it at all with friends or family. Some work, Medical, Trucking, Trades like plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and others are in demand and easy to obtain. Of my friends in the area I am the only one that owns his own business, The others are, mechanics, truck drivers, many of them are prison guards, few are teachers, and lastly medical. I don't think any of us are making a ton of money and if we lived down state it would not be enough but when you consider nice houses cost 50K in town the cost of living is different as well. Heat cost are high of course but I don't know anyone that does not supplement the heat with wood.Scott, I know living down south you wont believe me but the cold and snow is not that bad. You get very used to it. The dark gets old in December but that does not last that long. Plus think of all the carving time it creates.
