I can't wait to head up there.  The family and I are heading to Branson for 10 days in July.  We will get home from that on Sunday and then I will head to Michigan on Monday.  22 days off in a row total.  Did I say I can't wait?

Never been to Michigan before....say a person wanted to get from this pig roast to Peshtigo, WI...how long would that take?

Google says 5 hours and 26 minutes....is that about right?

Maybe if you dont stop. no road construction and no problem at the bridge.  Most years menominee mich has a parade that can cause a delay that sunday.  What you doing in Peshtigo?  I grew up there.

planning on being there.  yes lots of distractions at work as we merged with USACS at my hospital and company.  Very distracted and lots more to do than I can fathom.  still planning on camping and spending some time.  my wife may not be able to get that much time off.  I may bring my daughter if she is not working.  I still have about 10 hours of onboarding and admin stuff still to do in my free time.

Gee if "onboarding" is anything like 'waterboarding' it sounds like your job is more interesting that I thought. :D :D Yeah, I am glad we are still in your plans because I am really looking forward to meeting up with you for more than a brief phone chat. I hope work goes as smooth as possible.

I kind of like the mom and pop motels if they are clean. Has anyone stayed at the Deer Trail or Wagon Wheel motels? If so, please comment or message me on your experience. Thanks in advance.

I just checked to see how Hidden Hill Campground is filling up that weekend and see that there are still spots available. I also noticed that they have added a second rental trailer. For hose comfortable with trailer life and driving a long distance and don't want to drag their own along this is a nice option. My wife and I got the first one reserved months ago, now they have a second one. Just bring towels and linens. Perfect for us.

My wife and I took a camping honeymoon (44 years ago) but we decided to stop and visit her cousin who was working for the DOS in DC at the time. We wound up in 5 Corners, VA and looked for a last minute motel to spend the night before moving on to Williamsburg. I was just 21 and when I walked up to the desk in this little place and asked for a room for the night I should have been suspicious when the clerk looked up and said "All night?!" Worst place we ever stayed and the worst night's sleep I have ever (not) had. I have slept better in a sleeping bag tied up to a rock to keep me from sliding off the mountain on a 10 night. Ah to be young and stupid  nave. We left that place at 4:30 in the morning because we couldn't stand it anymore and the next room over had 3 sets of occupants through the night, all of whom made a lot of noise.

my now wife, then GF were last minute invited to go on a rafting/gambling trip with my nurse and her family in Colorado.  they were all staying at the same hotel and got great rates.  we traveled in caravan, and all went to their hotel first. and try as we might, we were not able to get a room there and all stay at the same place.  called 3 times.  when we arrived, we could not get in the parking lot for all the police cars with light flashing.  we were happy to go on down the street.
