Sep 2, 2014 - Lambeau Field Stadium Tour

We visited Green Bay, Wisconsin today. We toured Lambeau Field, it was a fantastic tour. The Lambeau Field stadium tours allow fans to experience the Packer’s history-rich facility first-hand and see several behind-the-scenes areas. There are three different tour options available, the Classic Stadium Tour, the Champions Tour and the Legendary Tour. We took the Classic one hour tour. We didn’t want to spend too much time knowing we had to drive 80 miles back home to Ellison Bay. Our youngest grandson is a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan. I was...

Jun 16, 2014 - Green Bay, WI - Back to Wisconsin

(Ron Writing) Yesterday was another windy rainy day. We stayed in Escanaba and spent a nice relaxing day reading and playing games. This morning we had sunshine and calm winds so we continued our journey south on MI-35, which runs right beside Lake Michigan. There are many beautiful homes with large lots right on the lake or on the west side of the highway. Sometimes the highway was right beside the water with no houses between the road and the water. All over Wisconsin and Michigan we see so many of nice big homes setting on very large...

May 21, 2014 - Updated - Green Bay, WI

UPDATE May 30 from Green Bay. Our week in Green Bay flew by. 50th Class Reunion was really enjoyable and well put together by the people that made it possible. Had 2 visits with Kimi & Ed at their new home in Appleton, WI about 20 minutes South of GB. So nice to see them and will be staying in the area for the birth of grand daughter due on July 28th. Big thanks to Cal & Yvonne for putting us up at their home during most of our stay. Had some great 'eats' at some of our old favorite places and enjoyed some new also. Night before we left...

Aug 16, 2013 - on the res in enemy territory

Golf activities kept us so busy at Lawsonia, we wanted to stay one more night and enjoy Green Lake and some of the activities the complex offers. But between 800 and 1,000 good Christian folk were about to descend on the place and there was no room in the campground for heathens like us. We like to travel without making many plans, but it was Friday night and school has not started yet. This means you can't be choosy, so we ended up camping at the casino on the Oneida reservation in Green Bay. Out west Native American reservations look...

Aug 16, 2013 - Welcome to Glass Travel Log

Welcome to Glass Travel Adventure blog. We will be sharing our love of travel, towns we stopped in, pictures and our experiences. It has now been a month since we decluttered our lives and left Loveland. Our first task was to complete the process of becoming South Dakota residents. Many have asked why we chose SD as our state of residence. SD has tax advantages, we were able to license the motor home less expensively and we were able to manage our mail through Americas Mailboxes, a SD based mail forwarding service. Residence was...

Aug 9, 2013 - Green Bay Packers

Sitting in Lambeau Field, watching the Packers fulfilled a life-long dream for me! One more thing off the bucket list. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if the Packers had shown up to play. I really do understand that pre-season means they are looking at players to determine who to cut and who to keep, but this was a pathetic showing! However, that being said, the energy in the stadium was unbelieveable! I saw a sign that said, "Green Bay - Population 104,754 - Packer fans 100,000" and that's true. I bet 99.9% of...

May 10, 2013 - Day 12: Green Bay and on to Michigan

Marge got us off to a wonderful start with Denver omelets and English muffins! We warmed ourselves in front of their fireplace before we pulled out. Wonderful visit with great friends! One of my bucket list items was to see a game at Lambeau field. Well, I didn't see a game today, but we did tour the stadium! Grant, our guide, was so enthusiastic and made the tour fun and informative. Ralph took a ton of photos. We walked through the tunnel and heard the music they play for the team when they're heading to the field. We also got to sit in...

Jul 16, 2012 - Green Bay, WI

I posted the Green Bay city photos last as we were still exploring at the time I posted the Stadium and Train Museum photos. We visited Green Bay the city on a Sunday afternoon and it was very quiet with little to no traffic. It is not a large city and it does not seemed to be an "Urban" beehive. But it does have a combination of old and modern buildings. The University of Wisconsin- Green bay campus is substantial and appears to be able to provide a strong local educational presence. Regards, Carol and Steve

Jul 15, 2012 - Visiting Green Bay – Train Museum , WI

The National Train Museum is just a few blocks north of where we are staying. When you grow up just three blocks from the tracks with steam engines swishing and swooshing and clanging and banging you can’t resist peeking back into that history. There were three very interesting trains: the “Dwight D. Eisenhower,” the “Big Boy” and the French Friendship train. Dwight D. Eisenhower - Built for the London and North Eastern Railway in 1937, this locomotive was originally numbered 4496 and named Golden Shuttle. It was renamed Dwight D....

Jul 14, 2012 - Visiting Green Bay - Lambeau Stadium

Although we do not follow professional football closely, we wanted to visit the stadium of one of the National Football League’s oldest football teams. We were asked by the tour guide, who are the oldest teams? That would be (1) The Cardinals – 1898 - started in Chicago (2) the Bears – 1919 - started in Decatur, IL, (3) the Packers -1919 – started in Green Bay, WI. The tour showed us around the stadium, explained the team history and we even got to run out the player’s tunnel onto the field. The field is beautifully green and was installed...

Sep 21, 2011 - Lambeau Field

We began today in Appleton, WI, south of Kewaunee but still in Kewaunee County, as Dan visited The History Museum ($7.50 admission). Appleton is the hometown of Magician Extraordinaire Harry Houdini and the "Castle" gathers, interprets, and disseminates information related to his life and career. The A.K.A. Houdini exhibit lets the visitor experience some of Houdini's tricks of the trade through hands-on activities. We then drove to Green Bay for a tour of Lambeau Field, a mecca for Green Bay Packer fans! The escorted tour by stadium guides...
