Overnight camping trip to Medford WI. Saturday A.M. travel.

We decided to cut our weekend camping trip a little short. Although we did spend a very comfortable warm night in the camper once we were off the road. Finding a spot to park was quite an adventure. An early snow storm made camping in a state, county, city or private camp ground a little more difficult than planned.

With the weather forecast projecting additional snow and with the option of heading south to the gulf coast for the winter out of the question. We decided to head north to home.

We enjoyed our overnight adventure and have decided to set a new goal in our retired (semi) life. Our goal for this winter is to camp at least one night each month between now and June 30, 2010 in the camper. With a little planning I think we can do it.

Anyone have a heated garage we can pull the camper into for the January-March adventures?

If not could someone remind me.....what are the signs of early onset frost bite?

It should be an adventure.

The snow line on Saturday was just south of Mellen. From Abbotsford to Mellen we drove through snow and slush. The night before left a half a dozen cars in the ditch.

I couldn't have said it any better. Thoughts of a wedding guest.

I love this picture.
It shows a very happy groom, the brides lovely and tailored dress, the drums, the people.
Such a very nice time had by all.
Down to earth and very realistic.
Glad we were able to partake in its spirit.
Thank you
