O.K. Went for a walk today and saw trucks,people and snowmobiles on the lake. Hmm, today my dog and I start our diet!

Well we went for a walk on the lake yesterday and to our surprise in spots where we walked under our feet we could hear a kind of drumming and than ice cracking. It even happened when our dog was rolling in the snow. Unless I feel like speed walking I don’t think I will do anymore walking on the lake. Being at the lake has been very relaxing.

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your site. It keeps me informed as to what the area looks like at any given time. We have cottages up there and I love the area so I truly enjoy seeing the lake whenever I’d like when I don’t have the good fortune to be up there. Thank you

Hi, Jerry! Setsuko and I returned to Osaka/Nara, Japan safely. The visit to the lake was awesome. It was really nice to meet you during our visit. We will keep watching the lake through the WEBCAM.

Thanks Hiro, I am the only one on Trump Lake that had 2 (two) Hiros across the street. The other one was Hiro Nakashima. He has two very fine restaurants in the valley. Everyone reading this should dine at “Nakashima of Japan” when in Appleton or Green Bay.

We just got dish network for TV. Must have 2-year contract which is ok, but the good part is you can turn it off for up to 6 months of the year. We only go up in summers, so this helps. Be aware though, the 2 year contract is 24 months of “on” so it s really like a 4 year contract. They also offer internet, but it was like $50 a month and could not be turned off for winter. Let me know if you find a better price for internet, I would be interested. TV costs we signed up and first 6 months at 19.95 then it went to 34.95 for 120 channel package, also first 3 months included every pay channel!!! That was nice. Good Luck and keep me posted!!

This great bunch of folks will be performing some of Dan’s Radio Reader Theater scripts for a fun filled Valentine event. Be sure to check their website (bigeaselbistro.com) for details. We’ve had some pretty chilly winter temperatures here in Oklahoma but we’ll be sure to prepare ourselves for the much colder weather we’re seeing on the Trump Lake webcams. Can’t wait to see everyone!

Hi Mary, just a short note to say hi and a Merry Christmas. I watched the video of the house being
taken down. You do know that my Uncle Clarence and Aunt Kay lived there. I believe the late 30’s
or early 40’s. Not sure if they had it built but think they did. Will have to check with Marv and see if
he has any info. Enjoy the cold weather, last weekend it was 70 degrees out here. It’s cooled down
now. I enjoy seeing the snow on the lake from the WebCam.

Yes, the old house is gone. I knew your aunt and uncle owned it before my folks. Dad bought it in 1946, just before I was born in ’47. Did the Reetz (sp) farm there. I think we had a chicken coop for a while but only my pet Easter Rooster occupied it @!!

I have a few pictures I’d like to share with you and also see if you can identify 3 kids that we played with. Could you email me at [email protected]?

Have a great year!

I can’t believe it’s almost tax day, and the lake is still covered in ice and snow!! We’ve kind of gone by the guideline that the ice is usually off by, or around, tax day. I guess I needn’t rush there from CO to get the lawn raked just yet. 🙁

I still so enjoy the cameras Jerry, and really appreciate your effort, and the assistance you get from others, to keep them up and running!

Jerry, is there a chance that the order of the comments can be changed from the oldest comments at the top, to the newest comments being at the top? It may encourage more postings if viewers see the latest comments posted at the top…..it might appear more ‘current’…..just a thought.

See you all soon……it won’t be long now!

What a coincidence, this very morning on our way to Menominee, Mi we stopped in Coleman and bought an antique from a fine gentleman with the same last name as yours. He told me he had grandchildren in Portland. Is there any chance that you could be related to this very fine man in Coleman. I have a kid sister in Oregon City who checks the cameras every day.

By nine in the morning, two cameras WILL be back on Trump Lake. I have been to busy going to funerals so my advice to you is: Do not get old!

Reply

Debbie Lee April 7, 2013 at 6:52 pm

For all of us that aren’t as fortunate to be there can you please point one of the cameras at the lake so we can see when the ice finally goes off!

Jerry Diny April 3, 2013 at 9:18 am

We were at the Kress Inn, when I discovered late one evening the two lake cameras suffered a big fall. I called our lake association president Rich Wickersheim and asked him to check them in the morning and keep them from getting wet. Rich went over there in the dark and picked up the winter heated camera box and cameras and returned them to my garage. That saved me from having to buy new cameras, THANK YOU, RICH!

I have them in my basement right now, looking out the patio door. Tomorrow or the next day I will have them in their summer box and back on the lake. It got down to 7° last night, Spring is not here yet. In De Pere we saw many flocks of Robins but not one here at Trump Lake.

Jerry, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of so many loved ones. Five funerals must set some sort of record (not a good one). Hopefully, you are done with those for awhile.

I will check in at night & hope to catch the foxes!

Oh, foggy morning! Love it! The snow has fallen….. beautiful! So fun to watch the change of seasons. I am still hoping to see some wildlife one day.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season… thanks for the cameras… love them!

Reply

Jerry December 3, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Hi Lorie,

I just have not had the time to do justice to the cameras. I have spent all my time going to funerals, all my ol’ working buddies and cousins are checking out on me. Last week alone we went to five funerals.

Today, I just got the cameras in their heated winter box. I ran into a few problems as it was misting all day, so I brought the lake cameras to our front deck. Tomorrow I will tune the focus, it is too dark now, then bring them back to the lake.

As far as wildlife goes, we always have deer in our back yard, but I have not seen one since deer season. However the foxes still come every night out in front. I do have a flood light that comes on automatically when the fox comes. We usually see the mama fox and four young ones. So if you check the cameras at the right time, you will see them tonight.

Oh, the leaves are definitely falling…. I can see the thinning, especially in the 2nd & 3rd cameras. Looks like you are working on taking out the dock…. good luck to you! I hope that we can see some wildlife… I’ll be watching. In the meantime, thanks for the cameras. Your fall is far more beautiful than fall we have here in the city of Chicago! : )

Jerry September 27, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Thank you Lorie. Yes, the cameras will be in a heated box as last year built by my friend, Quentin, around the corner. I have been having some modem/router problems and I have been busier than a cat on a hot tin roof. But I will get caught up, I want to move one around more as we have a lot of wild life in our yard all the time.

Reply

Jerry June 14, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Hi Lorie,

The cameras are located 20 miles north of Maiden Lake. We are exactly 2 miles from Hy32 on Trump Lake Road. My father bought the Dunn cottage in 1952. We are across the street and the camera that rotates is in our front window. I missed the first Trump Lake Association meeting since 1952 this year as we had to attend a graduation in Virginia, I do have more cameras that I move around for people to see work on their places or to see the foxes or bears or whatever, but I have been to busy to get them set up this year, but I will when I get the time.

Thanks for your interest and input, Lorie, my kid sister checks on me everyday from Oregon.

I love to see that your boat is there & then not there, imagining that you are out on the boat enjoying a wonderful day. Thank you for allowing my imagination to go to a happy, peaceful place ; )

Hello. We often have enquiries about local history and families related to original Trump Lake residents. A gentleman named Peter Noer, who is 80, is the descendent of the Dr. who founded the first hospital in Wabeno, and the family had a cottage there. He is looking to find out if anyone remembers the Noers, or the Bierbaums. The Bierbaum’s had a local business and also had a place on Trump Lake. If anyone knew them, you could contact the library art
the email above, or 715-473-4131, or contact Mr. Noer directly, at his email address:

Several months ago Iserve formerly ez-net stopped offering DSL in this area so I had to go with another internet provider. I spent many hours and dollars to get people in here to get their modem/router to work. You can never talk to the same person more than once. About thirty different people could not get it work properly. Last Friday with the help of Jason Boor (Wisconsin Computers), we have it running about as good as with ez-net with a modem that a good neighbor offered me.

I have four more cameras that I would move to where ever people would have an interest, like fox and other animals. I would put a camera for people who are having a new septic or building going on as long it was within 400′ of someone with a good router. These were by invitation only and they were live 24/7. I hope to get the other D-Link back on line from the other end of Trump Lake.

I must give a big thank you to Greg Tice, the very kind gentleman who helped me originally purchase the equipment and set it up and piggy-back on his website. And Mary and Bruce Beck for getting it to: http://www.trumplake.org

Today I will go out and check the ice thickness and post it on camera #2, thank you for the input.

I too would like to thank you for this site. As a child my grandparents to me to the lake from town. Now my parents live on the lake year round and this is just a nice way to check in on them. I often kid about seeing them on this end of the lake in their boat one of these shots. Thanks again-Appreciated!!!!

I also look daily at the lake, can’t wait for the ice to melt off. Summer is right around the corner.

Great job with the camera’s, it brightens my day.

Summer awaits!!!!! See you then!

It is nice to know that someone else enjoys the north woods as much as we do and also checks the ice from Colorado. we are in the foot hills and have watched the ice leave Evergreen Lake while it is still frozen in Wisconsin

Hi David,

It appears we may be assembling either a Colorado East or a Wisconsin West faction!! We have not yet been to Evergreen, but are determined to get over that way soon, if not before summer, then fall for sure!

Well AJ……we live in Larkspur!!!!! Although we prefer winters in CO, you have to drag us away from the lake in the summer! 😉

I love the lakes…so DRY out here and I love when people say it is “green” here too! ha! Our house is in Townsend. Mary lake is the lake we are on. How far away are you from Townsend…?

Ann April 18, 2011 at 6:13 pm

I look forward to seeing your happy face every summer as you ‘patrol’ the lake. It’s especially nice when we have a chance to chat now and then!
Hope you & your family are well.
Take care!

Hi Folks,

Sure do enjoy looking at the lake via your cam. I moved away from Trump lake when I was about 20 years old. Lots has changed since then. I remember MANY days fishing, swimming and cruising for chicks. I had a great youth on that lake. I keep the cam in my “favorites”. Thanks again.

We just got home from from Waubee Lodge. All I can say is: it was good but it has gotten better, now it is superb. Everything was 5 star+!

First of all I want to thank Greg Tice for inviting me to piggy-back on his web-site. He told me what to buy, then I brought them to his office and he set them up for me with my router. Then I added a third camera which Greg set up for me.

The first year I had the lake camera in our son’s place across the street from us as he is on the lake side. I had bought rotators which are 240 volt, so I had to buy transformers and take them apart and re-wire them to go from 120 to 240. And then buy timers to turn the rotators on for 1 second every five minutes to always give a different view of the lake. The rotators failed often. So, I asked Greg if I could add another camera and abandon the rotators for the lake cameras. He said, “Fine” and helped me out.

So I built a weather proof box with a glass door and moved them down to the lake side. All was well until I read that the cameras were good from 32° to 104°. As you know sometime it does get colder than 32. So I went and checked with my friend Quentin Velicer a retired home builder as to what to buy to build a box for the cameras for the winter weather. Quinten said: I will build you a box. I left with him a 12” x 12” therm o pane that I got from Old Castle Glass in Green Bay. Quint built a 4” thick foam box for me and I installed a Honeywell Weather Watcher thermostat with a 7½ watt light bulb and a thermometer. It worked just fine all winter.

This morning I had noticed that Cam #1 was not transmitting just as we were getting ready to go out of town to visit two different relatives in nursing homes. I have a feeling that it got too warm in the box for the cameras. So having no time to spare, I went to the lake and removed #1 from the box and brought it across the street and it started working over here so just stuck in the window of our lower level looking south to Terrians property.

In the morning I hope to re install the two lake cameras in their summer box and all will be back to normal. And with Greg’s permission I am in the process of buying another camera to move around Trump Lake to who ever had a router. I have more ideas, hang on, it will be a fun ride!!!!!

Jerry
