Monday August 12, 2013-Country Roads RV Resort

Well, the Wisconsin is over and it was a rousing success. We had another great time with the folks from the cheese-head state and met some new friends. The Wisconsin chapter leader is Tom Weber and he has done a fine job for several years, but he and his wife Gerry have decided to go full time in their new Bighorn and they want to step down. I met the new chapter leaders, Terry and Jackie Spencer at this rally and have been really impressed with them. I'm looking forward to working with them in the future.

As usual at a rally, there was plenty of good food. Tom and his daughter furnished a lot of sausage for a breakfast potluck breakfast on Friday morning. Dave (Cookie) and some other volunteers prepared the sausage and the rest of the group brought other fixin's for breakfast and we all had a good time. 

We had a pig roast on Saturday evening. Tom found a couple of guys that agreed to roast a pig (offsite) and bring it to the park for us to dine on. Again, the group supplied the side dishes and desserts and everyone had a great meal. 

Every evening we had a large campfire with firewood brought up from Michigan by Dan. There are at least two group campfire areas in the park and the weather was perfect for a fire in the evening. It warmed up nicely during the day and was cool at night. It certainly made for some good sleeping!

Almost everyone left yesterday but about eight rigs stayed until Monday to leave. The rest of us will be leaving in the next couple of days. This rally starts the second half of the rally season for us and we are looking forward to more fun times with friends.

So long.

Don't move firewood. The ash borer has wiped out most ash trees in Michigan. Wisconsin doesn't want them.
