End of Summer Update

After taking the summer off blogging, I am back at it. We had a fun summer in and around Wisconsin. We stayed in Hudson and New Richmond most of the time – thanks Mom and the Boardmans!

We closed on our lake lot in early July – we are landowners again. We have not started any improvements yet; we are finalizing our building plans with the County now. Our plan is to get all the approvals and start construction in the spring.

This summer we had a bunch of shorter trips. Door County, Minnesota, Southwest Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. We joined 3 Airstream rallies around the state; most of the blog posts are done if you want to look back at them.

We have 1 final local trip planned starting next week to Barneveld, Wisconsin for Pam’s Family Reunion. We will then spend a week in Baraboo with our friends Terry and Kirk and finish out with our final Wisc-UP Airstream rally.

Then, we are headed west (we think) on our way back to Arizonia. We have reserved Palm Creek for Christmas through the end of March.

Keep in touch!

Green Bay, Wisconsin

We spent 4 days in Green Bay on our way to the UP of Michigan. We stayed at the Brown County Reforestation Camp Campground. A well-run government campground. Large sites and nice amenities.

Our first day we toured Title Town and then took the 2-hour Legendary Stadium Tour. Fantastic. We saw the entire stadium including the Visitors Locker Room, Broadcast Booth, a couple of suites and the roof. We then went out the tunnel to the field.

We watched the first half of the Packers / Bears game at Lambeau field / 1919 Kitchen & Tap. We watched the second half at the Hinterland Brewer in Title Town.

Monroe Rally

In August, we traveled to the Madison, WI area for the Eat Drink and Yodel! Rally. Pam volunteered to write an article for newsletter. Click here to read.

We visited the National Historic Cheesemaking Center Museum and the Imobersteg Cheese factory. We went to the Alp and Dell cheese store connected to the Emmi Roth Cheese Factory. The next day, the group toured a dairy farm. Kelly went golfing at Monroe Golf Club. That evening we toured Turner Hall and then had dinner there with our special guest – Uncle Bob!

Ishnala Supper Club

Before the Monroe Airstream Rally, we stayed at Mirror Lake State Park. While there, we visited the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo. This is a global organization dedicated to saving cranes. They also rescue cranes around the world and have built fantastic habitats for them.

We had dinner at Ishnala Supper Club; voted the best supper club in Wisconsin. They do not take reservations. We had a 2 hour wait while we sampled their famous Old Fashions and walked the grouinds.

Pam and I were seated at famous table 15. The best table in the house (for 2 people). It is in the corner of the room and is featured on the cover of the book: Wisconsin Supper Clubs: An Old-Fashioned Experience.

Marge & Irv’s Cabin

Before heading home from our Door County travels, we stopped a couple of nights to stay with my Aunt Marge and Uncle Irv at their cabin on Long Lake. We “Mooch-Docked” in their driveway.

We had a great time. Took a pontoon boat ride around the lake; watched a sailboat race from the shore; had dinner at the Golden Nugget.
