This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
The guys at DudeFoods.com love to fry just about anything. They recently ventured into new territory with a gift basket full of Beer-Battered Deep Fried Bacon specially ordered from WisconsinMade.com. After making up a batch, the DudeFoods taste testers report that deep fried bacon turned out to be one of their favorite things they have ever used a deep fryer for. When it came to the taste, they added that the crispy bacon "matched up absolutely perfectly with the crunchy beer and bacon breading". Are you man enough to try some?
