Jul 12, 2019 - I Want to Ride My Bi-cy-cle, I Want to Ride My Bike

For over a year, I have researched and consider purchasing an e-bike. An e-bike became the latest craze for owners of Travatos because Travatos (Gypsy) is small enough to drive anywhere, but not big enough to pull another vehicle for cruising around town once you are parked at a campground. So, e-bikes became the rage so folks could park the Travato and ride the e-bike around town. I became interested based on the stories I had read from this group. So, I purchased the folding RAD mini electric bike prior to this trip. I decided on the...

Gypsy Journey

Jul 14, 2018 - Door County

We headed north along I43 to Wisconsin this morning. Generally a smooth ride with only a little bit of construction and traffic in the Milwaukee area and some rain squalls north of the city. We passed the worlds largest flag pole at Acuity Insurance near Sheboygan. It's a 400 ft. pole built by wind turbine manufacturer Broadwind Energy. The pole has a concrete base that is 11 feet wide at the bottom. It replaced a 338 ft. pole erected in 2005. It's reportedly the tallest flag pole in the US. The flag flying from the pole is 9,800 sq. ft....

Jun 21, 2018 - Door County - Baileys Harbor

We said goodbye to Fond du Lac and headed northeast to Door County, which is a large peninsula between Lake Michigan and Green Bay…. the actual bay, not the city of Green Bay. We stopped just outside of the city of Green Bay for lunch to break up the drive and it was an easy ride after we got off the interstate and onto a Wisconsin highway taking us to our destination for 6 nights in Baileys Harbor. When we arrived, we found an older campground which means tight spaces for large RV’s like ours. But Jay managed to get us parked and even...

Sep 2, 2015 - Baileys Harbor, Door County, WI

Hi folks. It has been over a week since you have heard from us. Not to worry all is well, almost. We have been tramping around Door County, WI, doing the unthinkable, eating, touring, eating, fishing, eating, and more eating. If you are not familiar with this place you probably wouldn’t understand. Famous for their cherry crops, many locals make jams, jellies, juices, relishes, candies, cakes, pies and if you can think of it they make it with cherries. Tonight we had Door County sausage made with cherries, for dinner. We have been to two...

Jul 5, 2015 - Door Peninsula

We all survived the July 4th fireworks and we're convinced Foxy is becoming more tolerant of the booms than she's been in previous years. We had a little longer driving day than usual for us but we would gain an hour today as we go back into Central Time. We didn't need to get going too early. The road was relatively quiet and we made several stops as we worked our way south out of Michigan and into Wisconsin. We stopped at the Wisconsin Visitor Center to pick up some touristy propaganda and stopped again at a defunct bank for lunch. Banks...

Summer 2015 & Beyond

Aug 30, 2014 - Door County Shopping

Jerry and I have been amazed at the awesome shops in Door County. You have 18 villages to choose from. Every one of the villages has a shopping district or two offering an eclectic array of interesting and unique merchandise. From stylish apparel, jewelry and accessories to kitchenware, unusual holiday gifts, and more. Door County is a shopper’s paradise. There’s also a ton of goods from locally produced ciders, to jam, jelly, fudge and world-famous olive oil. Jerry bought a jar of jalapeno jam that is the BEST we have ever tasted, so is...

Aug 22, 2014 - Door Peninsula, Wisconsin

This is a quick update to let everyone know we have safely arrived. We had a much easier drive today, only about 160 miles. We did have a bit of construction and a couple of scary detours that took us down some roads with low trees, but after that, it was a piece of cake drive. We arrived in Door County, Wisconsin around three. We are all set up for a at least a week, maybe two. We have a nice wide pull through site with just the right amount of trees to enjoy and not block the satellite signal. This should be a fun week of exploring....

Aug 15, 2014 - Door County, WI

We continued our trek with a stop in Door County, WI. This is the thumb of WI north of Green Bay that juts out into Lake Michigan. It looks like a peninsula, but it is actually an island with a draw bridge connecting it to the mainland. Cherry farms and wineries are plentiful on the island. TID BIT - the island has 275 miles of shoreline and 11 lighthouses, more than any other county in the US. There are several little harbor and resort towns every 10 or so miles along each coast– Egg Harbor, Bailey’s Harbor, Gill’s Rock, and Fish Creek...

Jul 28, 2014 - Bailey's Harbor, Wisconsin

7/28 – 7/29 Another 74 miles brought the caravan to Bailey’s Grove Campground in Bailey’s Harbor, Wisconsin (CR P, SR57). Our passengers for this trip were Sam and his cousin Colin. Bailey’s Harbor is located on the Door Peninsula which is located between Green Bay (water) and Lake Michigan. Here we met up with Alycen (Tori’s mother) and Abbie (cousin) for a 3.5 star meal at Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant. The highlight of this restaurant was the goats that were enjoying the roof of the restaurant. Peter, Tori, Ken, Joe, Colin and Abbie...

Oct 17, 2012 - Green Bay

The day began with a beautiful sunrise followed by clear and sunny sky. The temperature actually climbed to the high 60s - how long has it been since we have seen 60 let alone high 60's. We drove into Green Bay mostly to do errands like banking and hair cuts but we also found a neat kitchen store that we perused for some time. After having a good lunch, we drove to Lambeau Field and took some pictures. We did a little more shopping then headed back to the RV.

Oct 16, 2012 - Baileys Harbor

Because it was supposed to be a rainy day, we decided to stay at the RV. We did go out for lunch and stopped at a field where we had seen some Sandhill Cranes yesterday. They were still there and we were able to get some pictures of them. They are quite big, standing two to three feet tall. After getting their picture, we went into Baileys Harbor for lunch. We filled up a propane tank at the True Value there and wandered through the store which was huge and had everything you could think of including clothes. Since we were right at the...

Oct 15, 2012 - Touring Door Peninsula

Today we woke to another cloudy cold day, but as the day progressed, the sun peeked through and then the sky cleared. It remained chilly but fine with a jacket. Our first stop was Egg Harbor where we found an olive oil and vinigar place called Fat Louies. Bought some Tuscon Oil and Pomegranite Vinegar. Yun! We also stopped at an orchard market where we bought some Honey Crisp Apples and some Garlic Italian Bread. Between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek is a State Park and we drove through it to get some pictures of the bay and a Eagle Bluff...
