June 25 — After spending most of June in Illinois, we are venturing north of the Cheddar Curtain and are now in Wisconsin. We will spend a couple of weeks here camping (of course; that’s how we live now!) and visiting with friends and family. Here’s our itinerary while I’m back home with my fellow cheeseheads:
June 25-26 – Lake Kegonsa State Park – Kelsey & Timmy will come visit us to get a flavor of how we’ll be living for the next two years, and we’ll also join them at some of our favorite haunts in Madison
June 27 – Bill & Lisa F’s lake house in Stoughton (south of Madison) – morning bike ride through the beautiful countryside that, God willing, will be our home roads in a couple of years; afternoon boating on Lake K; Friday night fish fry with them and Kelsey/Timmy
June 28 – Bob & Diane C’s lake house in Mauston (near Wisconsin Dells) – a continuation of all of the fun things you do at a Wisconsin lake house
June 29-July 6 – Zander cabin in Elcho (up der hey by Rhinelander) for a week of BFF/hubby/family fun; more surely to be written (if remembered!) on this week together to celebrate and mourn the three of us girlfriends being 50 now!
July 6-7 – Appleton with Mom/Sis/DJ/Patrick/Liz/Nat – visiting the family and having fun
July 8-10 – Peninsula State Park in Door County – camping with the two youngest nieces – can’t wait for the hikes & bike rides, the play in the park (“Guys on Ice” at the American Folklore Theatre), campfires with s’mores, and other fun stuff with E & N!
… and then it’s on up to the UP, or Upper Peninsula [of Michigan], we go! Are we having fun yet? Yes we are, and with lots more to come!! Now please pass me some cheese curds!
