Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, totally worn out, shouting "Wow...What a Ride!"

WI...Part 2

Our next stop was less than 100 miles away but it was all hilly back roads through the WI Driftless Area. The area's terrain was the result of escaping the affects of glaciers. If interested more technical information can be found on Wikipedia. Suffice it to say it was hilly. Two hours later we arrived at our friends DuWayne and Jackie, whom we've known since the first day we drove into Gulf Waters RV Resort in Port Aransas TX where we both own rv lots. We're sad we won't be spending the winter with them so made a slight detour north for a visit. Our first evening at their home they took us out to dinner to celebrate Dave's retirement...thanks for a wonderful evening.

DuWayne & Jackie have lived in the Prairie du Chien area for a number of years. They once farmed their property but now lease some of it to other farmers. They have lots of stories to share of the area and showed us their part of Wisconsin.

In this hilly terrain contour farming is utilized to prevent erosion.

With only electric available we stayed at our friends home but what a beautiful setting for our rig. Though next time we may try and stay here too, just have to plan it right.

Located on a ridge what views we'd have of both sunrises and sunsets. Excuse the bugs on the front nose of the rig...seems there's lots of hatching going on right now.

A beautiful fall day with warm temps, time for a bike ride. Thanks DuWayne for a great fall ride.

A few pictures from Dave's UTV tour of their property.

Dave's new love...

A beautiful sunny day for a boat ride on the Mississippi...too bad the battery was dead.

Lansing Iowa

The next day was cold and cloudy but the battery worked. 

A little lighthouse on the Mississippi river. 

The reward for being out on the river on a cold, windy and cloudy day.

Thank you Jackie & DuWayne for your hospitality and for sharing your home with us. Maybe we'll see you in AZ this winter.

Until next time...


Thanks for stopping by;We'd love to hear from you.
