Putting Eddie to Bed!

We will be spending this weekend winterizing our “vintage” RV. We call it Eddie, my brother actually named it Eddie and it stuck. He says it reminds him of the RV in Chevy Chase’s Christmas Vacation. I don’t know, what do you think?

They even sell a Christmas ornament, now I know what I’ll get my brother for Christmas! Funny, you gotta love Cousin Eddie, I think we all have a Cousin Eddie somewhere in our families.

Crex Meadows – Grantsburg, Wisconsin

There are so many beautiful places here in Wisconsin.  A person really doesn’t need to go far to find a new adventure.  We drove about 40 minutes and spent the day at Crex Meadows in Grantsburg, Wisconsin.  Crex Meadows is a 30,000 acre wildlife area.  What will you find at Crex Meadows?  Over 270 species of birds, at least 86 butterflies, and 720 species of plants.  They have a beautiful driving tour, or if you’d rather hike there are tons of trails for that too.  Next time you’re in the Grantsburg area give yourself a little break and take a mini-vacation to Crex Meadows.  For more information visit www.crexmeadows.org

Remember this game?

I was thinking the other day about all the fancy games that the kids have now days and I remembered one from my childhood. This was actually the first video game I ever played, Asteroids! So simple but so much fun! Go ahead, give it a try, by the way I had to use my forward slash button to get it to shoot and my right, left, forward arrows to get my arrow to move. Enjoy!

A Hidden Gem – Straight Lake State Park

We went hiking on the Ice Age Trail yesterday at Straight Lake State Park near Luck, Wisconsin.  Wow, what a beautiful, untouched park.  We walked in about 2 miles to Straight Lake.  I wanted to fish but couldn’t get close enough to the water because of the marshy area by the shore.  Next time we’ll hike in from the south side and I hope to be able to fish.  There isn’t a boat landing that I know of so if a person wanted to fish from a boat you’d need to carry in a canoe or a kayak.  If I can figure out how to get close enough to shore to fish I think this would be a great lake to fish!

Here is a picture of Straight Lake, if you look closely you’ll see a small island out in the middle of the lake.

Here is a link to the Wisconsin DNR which will give you more information about the park.  I don’t think many people know about this park, we only saw 4 other people all afternoon and there was absolutely no one on the lake itself, except for a few swans.

The trails are dirt, about two feet wide or so, a very easy hike.  We will be going back soon to hike in from the south, I’ll let you know how we do fishing!

Project America Run II in Wisconsin

Mike Ehredt of Hope, Idaho is running through Wisconsin, literally! Mike is running to honor those who have served and died in Afghanistan. Flags bearing the Name, Rank, Age and Hometown of a fallen U.S. Military Member will be placed each mile, thus creating an invisible holding of hands from our northern border to the Gulf of Mexico outside Galveston, TX.

You can watch his progress on a map at his website which is www.projectamerica.com, today he is near Hager City.

My friend Jenna manages the Best Western in Spooner, she hosted Mike last weekend as he made his way through the area.  Her daughter, Chelsea, walked with Mike and even placed a flag with him!


Here is a the link to the story of this flag, SPC Joshua Lee Hill. Click here.

If you see a flag along side the road in Wisconsin it was probably placed there by Mike, take a moment to remember our fallen soldiers.  R.I.P. Joshua.
