Jul 14, 2013 - Wisconsin

We arrived and immediately the daughter and her husband was out to pick us up (no car, remember?). The family gathered and had a great meal at a Hurley favorite, The Iron Nugget. The food and service was super but the best part was family and of course the newest addition - Rylan. The next day we all headed out to The Little Bohemian Resort. This is the place where the feds had a shoot-out from the gangster, Dillinger from Chicago. Dillinger escaped and was later killed back in Chicago.

At Hurley, WI we are stopping to visit a fraternity brother I haven't seen or talked with in over 50 years. This guy reminds me a little of the John Baluchi character in Animal House. Jack hadn't changed in 50 years except he was a bit older and a little more worn down. We had lots to catch up on. Hurley is on the Michigan/Wisconsin state line and has about three bars for every registered voter. The town is located on one of the biggest iron ore reserves in the world and was a center for mining operations in years past. It was also a center...
