The Last Alaskans

Wednesday, Jul, 1 2015

Appleton native Heimo Korth, one of the stars of the hit reality show "The Last Alaskans" on Animal Planet will be on the PhilCast at 4:30-ish today.

I'm now hooked on the show, and I'm not quite sure why. When you think about it, there isn't much to watch.

One episode was mostly following around a couple of guys in the woods trying to hunt down an animal to kill for food....with no success I might add.
Not exactly griping content.

But the scenery is wonderful and there is an attraction to the craziness of the lifestyle out there in the middle of nothing.

For instance, how Heimo was so excited to be washing out the stomach of a caribou in a river so that he could munch on it raw as a tasty snack. I'll ask him about that today, and he better not tell me it 'tastes like chicken' either.

New at the airport

Tuesday, Jun, 30 2015

We all know what a pain it can be these days when flying.

But I stumbled across an article that lays out a few new trends at the airlines.

And guess what?

There are actually a couple of things on the list that make sense for air travelers.

I'll go over the list on the Tuesday PhilCast.

Not surprisingly though, several of these services come with a cost.

Spark plug spirit

Monday, Jun, 29 2015

It's the 4th of July countdown week already!

On Monday's show I'll be talking about my weekend at PhilCast SW where something very inspiring happened to me.

I feel it was a pretty special moment, and it involves something as ugly as this mouse nest-infested old drawer filled with time-capsule spark plugs.

Why this made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, when I tell the story to open the Monday show.

I don't believe in ghosts, but....

Another bear

Friday, Jun, 26 2015

Holy cow....I mean, BEAR!

This picture from someone's garage in the Antigo area, where a bear took cover in the rafters.

Of course this, plus another story I have, will prompt a PhilCast ArmBEARgeddon 2015 Alert to be sounded on the show Friday.

TOAD comes to Neenah

Wednesday, Jun, 24 2015

It has nothing to do with the frog-like creature.

It has everything to do with big-time bike racing in our state.


Tour of America's Dairyland

Riders from around the world compete in a series of bike races across Wisconsin, and Neenah hosts on Thursday with the "Neenah Rocket Criterium" event.

Races will be held throughout the day for various categories/levels of riders.
If you have never experienced the sheer speed and excitement of watching a bike race in person I urge you to attend. It's a blast. I'll be there hanging out before the PhilCast on Thursday to watch. If I was faster, thinner and younger I'd be racing myself!

CLICK HERE to see the complete schedule and learn more about Thursday's TOAD stop in Neenah.
