Jul 29, 2018 - Hayward, Wisconsin

We leave Duluth. I take us cross-country to Route 35. We are not on great roads but we see deer. They are in a cornfield. We see the two fawns but mama stays hidden. John gets a little concerned when I put him on Shortcut Road. It is gravel. “Don’t worry. It just cuts the corner to Route 35.” Route 35 south is in bad shape. We rattle and creak. John is not thrilled with my route. “But, we saw deer.” I cannot wait to get to M. We need to cross over to Route 53. M is closed. I cannot wait to get to T (That’s how the roads are named.) T turns...

Jul 13, 2016 - Not everyday is peaches and cream (No Pics)

So when I left Grand Marais, I was intending to go to Ashland, WI (Apostle Islands area). Some years ago we had stayed in a very nice municipal park (Kreher Park) right on Lk Superior. It's a nice town with lots of other nice towns in easy driving distance so I figured it was good for 3-4 days. BUT...the weather forecast showed story weather heading for the NW U.P. for Monday nite so I detoured down to the Escanaba area and northern Lake Michigan. After 2 nights there, I figured I head back north and west through Ironwood, MI and go to...

2016 Summer Trip

Aug 18, 2014 - August 1-17, 2014

Friday, August 1st made its entrance like a kitten, barely realizing another month had passed. We had been contacted by Marshfield Clinic yesterday afternoon about scheduling Benny’s MRI, x-rays and bloodwork ordered by Dr. Butler and today we took a few more phone calls about that, taking care of some of the preliminary questions so they could get insurance approval. I worked most of the day doing financial chores, setting up bill pay and such and getting my journal updated and getting some people that I thought would be interested...

Jul 31, 2014 - July, 2014

On Tuesday, July 1st we headed up the highway toward Hayward, Wisconsin. It was an uneventful trip…my favorite kind. We reached our destination around 4:00 and got our house set up. After getting set up, we went to Coop’s to eat pizza…one of the best pizzas we have ever eaten. Coop’s, Mike’s and Fast Eddy’s are probably our 3 favorite pizza places and unfortunately Mike’s and Fast Eddy’s are both in Alaska so we don’t get to go there often and they don’t have delivery…not to the lower 48, anyway. LOL Wednesday, July 2nd marks the first...

Jul 18, 2013 - Moving on to Hayward, Wisconsin

Today was our travel day to Wisconsin. Jay wanted to stop for breakfast at McDonalds which was right next to the fuel stop location. Although we still had quite a bit of fuel, I suggested we top off the tank, as we're going into some more rural areas of Wisconsin and I'm not sure how available fuel will be at truck stop locations, since we can't fit in small gas stations. When we left the campground, it was sunny but by the time we started to go to the peak of the hill where the fuel stop was, we were deep in fog. We could barely see...

Oct 1, 2012 - We seem to be in the peak of the fall colors

Today marks 2 full years out here on the road, exploring North America. What a ride it has been and we're still making lists of what we yet want to see. Everyday, we think the color can't get any better, but it does! I know I'm posting a lot of pictures and this about half of what I started with. Of course you have the option of not looking at them, I'm not taking record. LOL Saturday we rode the ski lift up the mountain to see the colors from that perspective and we found most of the locals and half of Wisconsin and Minnesota doing the...

Dream On

Jul 12, 2012 - Hayward, WI

We were in a lazy mode and left late morning to head towards Lake Superior. We took Highway 63 north, a scenic route through cornfields, small unincorporated towns, mountains and lakes. We stopped after traveling less than 150 miles. Nice, not to have to rush anywhere and take our time. We found a campsite on Lake Nelson just outside the town of Hayward. Our only complaint about the campground was the annoying Deer FLIES. Worse than mesquitoes in Minnesota and/or Alaska. Hayward had a WalMart so we stopped for groceries. Groceries may last...

Jun 21, 2012 - Chippewa Campground, Hayward, WI

The morning of June 21st we left Gull Lakes and drove 196 miles to Chippewa Campground near Hayward, Wisconsin for a two night stay. This campground is also located in a heavily forested area and the mosquitoes were as tenacious. Kathy was happy though because we had full hook-ups and she could get all our laundry done which had been piling up. Our next stop will be Iron River, Michigan and hopefully there won't be any mosquitoes there. This campground is packed with fisherman and their boats. I think the official sport of Minnesota and...

Jun 17, 2012 - Konkler's at Hayward, WI

Friday, June 15, 2012 -- Arrived at Hayward, WI and Lowell’s brother and sister-in-law’s home. After lunch we went to pick up the pontoon from another location. Actually, Bruce and Marilyn took the pontoon out a few days earlier and when they got out on the lake they realized someone had stolen their gas from the tank. They drifted for quite some time and then ended up across the lake at a friend’s dock. Bruce filled the pontoon with gas and Marilyn and Lowell headed across the lake and Bruce and I drove back. Later on in the afternoon we...

Aug 13, 2011 - Leaving Hayward, Heading East

Time to wrap it up here in Hayward and wanted to send along some of the “highlights” of our stay while here for a mere week. One thing we have decided in this lifestyle – one week is JUST not long enough to stay in any one place unless of course it’s merely a stop to reach a destination. One week is great if the weather cooperates and there are no RV mishaps that require attention; and of course you know we have had both (bad weather as well as RV mishaps). Several of you asked why we selected Hayward to stay in – and quite frankly think...

Aug 7, 2011 - Arrived in Hayward, Wisconsin

Awakened to overcast and drippy skies! Unfortunately, the usual progress we make on the day before we move was thwarted due to the heavy rains we had yesterday afternoon, so it all had to be done today before we could depart. So, we got off a bit later than usual, but still before 1100 and smooth sailing the entire route. We were a bit apprehensive going through Duluth after seeing how much construction and detours were all around the city, but fortunately, the route we took was easy enough to get over the bridge and into Superior,...

Aug 3, 2011 - Moose Lake

Moose Lake CG So the decision is to move westward. We'll leave plenty unseen back in the Upper Peninsula but we'll be coming back. Along the way to this National Forest CG we stopped for lunch at Sunday Lake, WI and had the entertainment of an hydro boat race. The photo shows the launch area and campground where the race was being held. We haven't seen hydro racing since the big boys were racing back in IL a few years ago. This time it was mini racers but the action was plentiful and we had a great time eating lunch and talking with other...
