Loved it and have many good stories. But, at 69 I new those days were numbered. So, to remain connected with the world I bought a Wolf Pup 16 ft BHS. It is a good base unit that I can still claim some sort of minimalist experience.
I live in west central WI. Menomonie- Prairie Farm area. Grew up in De Pere. You?
Thanks! Ya I still like the roughing it type camping and go to the Boundary Waters often to camp/portage/fish etc. I just do not enjoy doing that with the family (yet) which includes two small children and a dog. The wife and I decided that if we wanted to continue camping AND enjoy it, something a bit nicer would be more manageable (under-statement!).
I live in SE WI in the Milwaukee area. We have family up towards Antigo and Rhinelander so we plan to travel around and visit those areas more with the camper. My wife is from Portage and I'm from Green Bay. I worked for the Packers while in high school as a "custodial engineer"
Best HS job a kid could have in my opinion, especially one associated with a favorite local sports team. I'm familiar with the Eau Clarie/Chippewa Falls area but I see Prairie Farm is a bit NW of that area.
