As a member of Club Burly Flow, you’re part of the group that makes all of this happen, and that’s no small thing. In fact, it’s a very big thing.

Without your support, Burly Flow would be a very different place, and I want to thank you for that support by providing exclusive access to me as well as an enhanced Burly Flow experience.

Club members receive at a minimum:

  • Access to the Burly Flow: Eric Stories Podcast, a twice monthly podcast exclusively for club members. Where the Burly Flow Podcast tells the story of me in Burly Flow, the Eric Stories Podcast tells the story of me — me before Burly Flow, me after I was here the first time. It’s a bit more intimate than the Burly Flow Podcast, and when the season is over and I publish the stories, club members will be able to purchase signed copies of the print version, should they decide that’s something they want.
  • Exclusive photo sets from the Good Enough Region twice a week.
  • Video content twice a month.
  • Random posts and updates.
  • Opportunity to purchase exclusive merchandise, when merchandise is available.
  • Signed copies of print material.
  • The ability to message me directly.

In Patreonspeak, these are among the things you'll receive:
  • Member's Only Podcast
  • Exclusive posts and updates
  • Merch
  • Complete post archive

About Burly Flow

Let me start with a profound “Thank you.” The fact that you’re here means you’re part of the Burly Flow family — someone interested enough in the stories and the place to investigate a little further, to poke around and see what else might be out there. As the writer and the creator of all this, that means more to me than you might imagine. So whether or not you go any further — you’re on board.

I’m sure you know the story, but here’s a quick recap: 25 years ago, give or take, an uncle left me a small inheritance that I used to move to Burly Flow, Wisconsin — a small town on the Mississippi River. I wanted to know what it was like to live in a small town, and for a few years, I did. But then life had other plans for me, and I moved away.

Now, I’m back.

When I returned to this place, I left just about everything I’d built over the last twenty years or so behind — a job, friends, family. I wanted to return to live here in Southwest Wisconsin, and that required determination; I also wanted to do this, and that required faith. If you’ve ever found yourself with one foot on the dock and the other foot in the boat, you know what I’m talking about: there comes a point when you have to choose where you’re going to end up. I chose the boat, but choosing the boat is always choosing the unknown.

If you choose this boat, I promise to limit the unknown to the fun stuff — the things that got you to step in to begin with.
