Wisconsin

I think you will go right past the "House on the Rock" in Baraboo, Wisconsin. Always a great place to stop and look. If you want a little more life than somebody's excentric life you can stop at the Wisconsin Dells and take a Duck ride. Truely one of life's greater experiences. One thing is for certain you are going to see some of God's most beautiful country in Wisconsin. When you are there be sure to pick up some fresh cheese curds. You'll know their fresh because they squeek on your teeth when you bite into them.

We lived in Wisconsin for 14 years in a prior life. Both of our children were born there.

Good luck

Not really, just on a caravan. It it is a trip you enjoy with others seeing the sights as you go! Full timing is a bit of a different lifestyle. We found that we tended to stay in one place for a while before moving. On a caravan you can be left yearning for more time, so a second trip is sometimes in order.

2 good all day stops in mid-Nebraska are the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island and Pioneer Village in Minden (just off I 80). If you just want to stretch your legs and kill a few hours, and get a good meal, stop at the arch in Kearney, and eat at Whiskey Creek, about 5 min N off the highway.

You Juney Mae lovers might want to give Ole's Big Game Bar in Paxton a try next time: http://www.olesbiggame.com/ You've got to drive into town (Paxton's pretty small though), and don't get the Bar confused with the gas station/rv park just off the interstate: http://www.olesbiggame.com/rvpark.htm Although it looks like a swell place to overnite.

Wish I was going with you, it makes me homesick - I grew up in Cozad. They are filming a movie there right now called "Independence", which will probably be out sometime next summer.

The Keep Nebraska for Nebraskans Committee would like to remind everyone to keep their heads and hands inside their vehicles at all times, don't stray off the interstate, only stop for gas and snacks, and continue to believe that NE is flat, windy, boring, and of no importance. Whatsoever. That is all, Good bye.

There is another Cabela's in Dundee, Michigan. Place is huge. Something for the folks out East, that are going to the International.

I would agree with maxandgeorgia on the side trip through the Snowy Mt. Range. just outside Centennial WY would be worth the extra time if you have it. ...hiking from 10,000' to 14,000' on trails laid out and made by the CCC & camp in the National Forest campground there if needed.

Well I'm one of those sort of brainwashed Californians that believes that this is the best place to live, etc. etc. but we're isolated from everybody by mountains or ocean, so the "word" that there are other beautiful places doesn't get through to us easily. I'm looking forward to a ride through the countryside and breathing fresh air for a change.

There's a pretty funny TV ad campaign in California about how our cheese is better than Wisconsin's because our cows are happy cows, etc. There's one where these two bulls are standing there ogling other cows walking by, "Hey, woohooo! Do you work out?"

I'll just have to see for myself!

Keep writing everyone, this thread is definitely printout material.

Thumbs up Snowy Range

maxandgeorgia and zamboni are DEAD ON about taking 130 across the Snowies.

[URL=http://www.byways.org/browse/byways/2054/]

The only way I can convey how beautiful they are is to tell you that my husband and I camped all over the US for a year and the place we always return is the Snowies (went there for Valentine's day this year!).

Our goal is to be campground hosts at Sugarloaf Campground up there, at 11,000 feet.

Connie

Connie, good luck at 11,000 feet! We spent the night in the Snowies at an elevation around 9800' and didn't do so well. Just up the road from Centennial, we found an old lodge and cabins site that had once been a University Field Study center (I've forgotten the details) but the lodge had just been reopenned as a restaurant and a few cabins had been renovated, so we elected to stay in one. (Realize, many of the old cabins had returned to the forest floor, leaning, decaying--really showing that time had passed it by.) We found the place delightful, but the altitude had us swimming! We felt pretty light headed and didn't move very fast, but the strangest was when I'd find myself waking up in the middle of the night, gasping! Anyway, we thought this range was beautiful. Our son and his family went back a year or two ago panning for gold and camped way back in. Remembering the Snowies always reminds me of Matt Shepherd and how his last views were looking out over this range that he loved. Well, off topic again. Breathe well and enjoy

Are the cows happy because all the carbon monoxide in the smog is making them loopy?
I don't know if you all are drinking folks, but you could probably tour a couple of breweries in Wisconsin, if any are open for tours the days you are there.
Umm, JohnHD will probably know the names and locations and hours of operation, if you ask him real nice, he may tell you.
Good luck on your trip.

I'm a wine drinker, husband is a drinker of very cheap american beer. Drives my german father crazy, but it's just the way he is. Grew up on Schlitz and Rainier.

But ach ja, die kase, voll gut! I'll definitely try some. We're leaving June 10th now!

I'm a little bit jealous! I want to take my trips and everybody else's too. Does that mean I really want to be on the road full timing???

I don't know about the jealous part...no trailer remember, and on the way home, it's too dirty to camp in. See photos...
