Well, spent the last hour and a half on a post, and thought it was saved as a draft for review, and it is gone! Good grief! My fault I am sure. In any case, it has been a great three days in Wisconsin. We were up early on Friday, and took another long hike and enjoyed everything this park has to offer:
We had an early lunch and got a few things done around the coach, then headed into Kenosha to get Toby from school and bring him back to the camp site to spend the night with us. Ashley was due back from Switzerland this night, and Garreck had a hockey practice, so we got the L’il guy. The place was nuts when we got back. I mentioned earlier this week that we were some of the only ones here, but that all changed on Friday night. Apparently everyone in the area wanted to get a last weekend of camping in, so there were folks setting up until well after dark. We had a blast:
Saturday morning was a blast…what morning is not when you wake up and see a beaming two-year old-looking at you! We played for a while, then headed into Kenosha so his mom and dad could spend some time with him and so I could help Garreck (well, it was mostly Garreck) take down two parts of a three-part Birch tree that has been dying over the years and actually getting too much into the wires heading into their house.
Toby was taking a nap so the ladies went into town to get some stuff so we could grill some burgers back at the camp site and we could spend some time with them there. I’ve raved on about this camp site before, and really wanted them to see it so they can take advantage of it with their camper next year. After we got back to the camp site, Terri, Ashley, Garreck and Toby took a hike while I got the grill going and got some things squared away for our move on Sunday.
We were up early again on Sunday, and took a walk. We then started to get the rest of the Coach ready to roll. We didn’t have sewer at the site, so we tried to time it to hit the dump station without a wait. We did have to wait, but not too badly. Most of the folks that showed up late on Friday seemed to be the first to leave on Sunday. We got in and got our “business” done and got on the road. We had a really nice trip up to the NorthStar Mohican Casino and Resort in Bowler, WI. None of these Native American Casino’s existed when we were growing up, but they are all over the place now. There is a lot of reservation land around where we grew up. Nice place, full hook ups, and 50 Amp service.
We were able to get set up in time to watch the last quarter of the Packer game, and we were pleased to see them win in a come back victory over the Fish. Sorry Justin and Darren! After the game, we headed to Terri’s sister and brother in law’s cabin which is located not too far from us. We are always grateful to share this little piece of heaven on earth with them:
What another wonderful time in the Home State. Badgers and Packers both won, the trees are turning, and as I finish this (for a second time) a light rain is starting to fall…a great way to lull off into a great sleep. We will see what the next few days bring.
