Sep 9, 2010 - Timber Twister

The Timber Twister races along a 3,200 foot track, through the forest, and down the mountain in individual coaster cars. Unlike an alpine slide, the alpine coaster makes hairpin turns, is elevated off the ground like a roller coaster, and operates year-round due to its unique track system. It is a thrilling six-minute journey down that overlooks Lake Superior if you look quickly as you fly past. At the end of the ride down the mountain, you stay in your car for a scenic return trip to the top. There are only four alpine coasters operating...

May 26, 2010 - Driving on

Today was a long driving day, up to Superior to visit Cousin Marjie, then to Duluth for lunch and a walk on the Lake Walk, then on around Lake Superior to Bayfield, a resort town on the lake, and on to the little town of Ashland, an old iron ore shipping port, where we are spending the night. I can't leave Wisconsin without mentioning the dandelions. I have never seen so many in my life everywhere...fields, yards, and roadsides. Tomorrow, we start some real driving as we want to reach Augusta, ME by a week from Friday. That will take some...

Aug 9, 2007 - Ashland, MN

9:30 46536 we arrive at the Prentice Park in Ashland, Michigan. This is a city park with electricity for $15.00 a night. No water, but we are ok on that. A fast run through Ashland to locate the Laundromat and we head back to the RV for the dirty clothes. Good thing the park is cheap it is $7.50 to wash 3 loads of clothes. Ashland City Park is quite nice. The local community college, high school and FFA group constructed walking paths and viewing platforms in 1989. The park is also filled with artesian wells. On my walk I saw, ducks,...

Aug 2, 2006 - Moving day again

Today we just drove into our new site at Iron River Wisconsin. So we have finally left our first state and on our way. The drive was nothing spectacular, but when we entered the road that led to our campsite we saw a deer and her fawn and they just stood there while I fumbled to get my camera ready. But got a good picture. Hope you enjoy it. More tomorrow.

7-31-06 Greetings from Washburn, Wisconsin the dairy state! Ironically the only cow we have seen was a bull! Hey!! I can tell the difference. Today was a retirement kind of day. We got up late. Left late. Arrived early. Ate lunch. Went for a walk. Went for a ride. Our ride took us north to a quaint little town called Bayfield. It reminded us of a small fishing village on the east coast with colorful shops and narrow streets and sidewalks. Small shops and restaurants with decks overlooking Lake Superior lined the shore line and surround...

Jul 2, 2006 - Iron River, WI

Sunday, 2July06 Arrived here at 'Top O'the Morn' campground and RV resort after a day of driving through beautiful rural northern MI and WI. The last time we came out this way, we were on Rte 2 almost the whole way. This time, we've been above Rte 2 (on Rtes 28 and 141, among others) - just bordering the waterways. What a difference looking at the scenery through the big coach windows vs. the truck windows when we had the 5th wheel or the truck camper - a whole different experience! Checking in here at the campground was like taking part...
