Turtle Lake, Wisconsin, to Wisconsin Dells

You have probably noticed that my posts are getting shorter. Well, the Alaska part of the trip is now history and I'm not taking many pictures. We also are wanting to get to Florida to see our new grandbaby and her parents, our son and daughter-in-law. To do that, we have to stop in Indiana and check in with our apartment manager. We also plan to get my knee checked out. Seems I blew it out on this trip and while I have the pain managed now, it wasn't for a long time and I was miserable. Terry also lost a crown that he would like to have fixed, so we may be able to get that taken care of. Tomorrow we plan to be back in Goshen, Indiana, to get some of that done.

Today we drove from Turtle Lake Casino to the Wisconsin Dells. There was little of note on that journey today except it was miserable. We were back in lots of traffic and we were doing the speed limit of 65 and everyone was passing us. The roads were bad, almost as bad as some in Alaska.

The one notable milestone today was that our trip turned 10,000 since leaving for Alaska on May 20. Terry had the camera all set up to catch the moment when the trip meter went from 9,999 to 10,000. Unfortunately and unbeknownst to us, the meter resets to 0.00 at 10,000. LOL so our moment was captured as "0.00." No matter. It's still 10,000 wonderful miles.

We are camped at Country Roads at the Wisconsin Dells. We have been here before, but it's been years. Still a very nice camp.

Tomorrow the journey officially ends. It's been a great ride.

Till next time. . .
