Jul 26, 2013 - Big Cat Rescue and Railway Museum

We took another tour of the area and saw some hills as we drove to the Big Cat Rescue in Rock Springs. There were many tigers and a lion and panther in cages being cared for by a foundation that is taking in abused and neglected cats. Afterwards we drove to the Mid Continent Railroad museum in North Freedom. It is a small place, the railroad is the main attraction and it had left. We did look at some of the cars in the museum. We also drove through Devil's Lake State Park and took the Merrimac Ferry over the Wisconsin River to get back to I94.

Jul 25, 2013 - Circus World Baraboo and Crane Foundation

We drove into farm country to find the Interntional Crane Foundation in Baraboo. It is a very nice set up - cranes from various parts of the world are housed in native type environments and many are rare. There is a whooping crane exhibit, the johnson exhibit pod houses 15 species of cranes and the spirit of Africa area has ones from that continent. A film tells about the cranes and the efforts being made to promote conservation of their wetland and grassland habitats so that they may survive in the wild. Over 100 cranes are kept by this...

Jul 24, 2013 - Upper Wisconsin dells

This is like an old tourist district, the Dells have been popular since the early 1900's. The main street is filled with tacky gift shops, kind of like some of the older FLorida beach resort towns. It's hard to find parking and there are attractions everywhere looking for your business. We went to the H. H. Bennett studio to see the black and white photographs, cameras and photography lab of this man who generated tourism of the dells. He became fascinated by the formations as early as 1857 at age 14. He taught himself photography and...

Aug 8, 2011 - Australian Pride & Session Two

Here in America the Australian staff on camp celebrate half Australia Day on the 26th of July. It gives us a chance to wear with pride our flags and colours, play the Triple J countdown all day, and add a smear of Vegemite to every meal of the day. Lucky for me, mum had sent me to America with a number of outrageous Australia day items that i wore for the whole of the day whilst talking to the kids in my very best over-the-top Australian accent. We made all of the pool activities Australia themed, noodle/kangaroo bouncing was one of the...

Jul 23, 2011 - Lake Delton, WI

Sat, 23 Jul: A travel day after being parked for two weeks always requires diligent attention to our checklists. We have a system, but things can be overlooked. The checklists (hopefully) ensure that we don't overlook anything—especially anything expensive. After getting Carpe ready for the road we drove the short distance to Forest City's Pammel Park and took advantage of their free dump. We'd been parked for eleven days so our tanks were getting pretty full. We hooked up the car and hit the road about 0830. US 69 to IA 9 and then I...

Jul 22, 2011 - Lake House Adventures & Heat Stroke Prevention

I will pick up where I left off. It was July the 4th, in America it is go big or go home. The camp was awoken at 7am by golf carts blasting patriotic American tunes, and the internationals embraced the spirit as much as we could at this hour of the day. The rest of Independence day was full or themed specialties, meals and chants. Dinner was particularly American with Hot Dogs, burgers and fries on the menu. On Friday the 8th of July I celebrated my first ever summer birthday. The day was just as laid back as the previous month or so. I...

Jul 19, 2009 - day 35

we left following sandy and lisa. tony and i missed a turn, then when turning around tony noticed very low air in our front tire. we all got back together again and proceeded to a gas station for air, but the tire would not hold. sandy's son in law lived near by so we followed them there, where he was very handy and had all the tools to jack up the rv, take of the tire, check for a leak, but none was found. we determined it was the valve stem adapter, so the tires all got filled with air and we were on our way. mileage is 47072. we arrived...

Sep 4, 2008 - We are in Wisconsin

We made tracks through the rest of Minnesota today, and landed in Lake Delton, WI for the night. It rained most of the day, but the kids said that it did at home, too. Tomorrow they are calling for better weather, but it really doesn't matter if it isn't...WE ARE GONNA BE HOME! : )

Jul 20, 2008 - Up to Wisconsin

Country Roads RV Park-Lake Delton,WI This morning was moving day again. We got up about 8AM, had breakfast and got ready to roll. There was no sewer hook-up at Joliet so we had to make a stop at the dump station on the way out of the park. Then it was off to a nearby Sam's Club gas station to fuel up for the trip. With the member discount we got gas for $4.13. Of course along the interstate it was selling at $3.87 at Loves and Pilot. You only have time to check so many gas prices on the computer. It really beat the $4.45 we saw in Chicago....
