Apr 7, 2014 - The Adventure Begins

Dave and I have begun our new adventure and we have a new little friend. Henry the hedgehog will be going everywhere with us and he loves to have his picture taken. We left Green Bay on Sunday March 6th. My Kia Forte was loaded to the roof so that we will be prepared for anything. In addition to the usual vacation clothing we brought our cameras, computers, phone, i-pod, roller blades. roller skis & poles, swimsuits, SCUBA gear, bikes, work clothes and rubber boots. Dave also brought 2 coolers full of food as he will be doing alot of...

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...

Aug 25, 2011 - "Titletown" - Lambeau Field!

The winds have died down and it was an absolutely gorgeous day here in Kewaunee! Today was our day to drive into Green Bay and visit Lambeau Field and tour the stadium. We are NOT Green Bay Packer fans; but truly football fans! And even if NOT a Packer fan, how can one not appreciate where it all really began for those of us who love the game? A bit about Green Bay though, even though we devoted our entire day to the stadium, its history is certainly an interesting one. Originally called La Baye Verte and was a safe haven on Lake...

Aug 15, 2011 - Green Bay

August 13, 2011 We had a great breakfast (brunch) with our hosts family. This was departure day. We were going to do a little more water skiing, but the weather did not cooperate. We departed about noon and traveled to Green Bay. At Green Bay we walked along the lake front and through the very busy amusement park. It was so busy, we wondered if this was a special day. We asked at the ticket office and we learned that almost every day is this busy. We then looked at ticket prices and discovered why it is busy. Tickets sell for 25 cents!...

Jul 23, 2011 - West by Northeast

After a day of rest during which we mostly avoided being in the car, celebrated my younger sister's birthday, and apparently, on my part, became a terrifying figure to my nieces and nephew, we started in earnest today on our westward journey (yes, we have already traveled about 1,000 miles of the 3,000 or so it takes to cross the country from coast to coast, but the first part sort of doesn't count). We picked up our niece, henceforth to be referred to as G, at Midway airport, and hopped in the car, heading... north. One of my perhaps more...
