We have been having a great time here with DJ and Amy. Jan and I and DJ went to visit a place called Little Norway today by Mount Horeb,Wi. It started out as a Norwegian family homestead some 100 or so years ago, very interesting. Hard to believe what our ancestors did to settle here and survive. Also in Mt. Horeb is the world famous Mustard museum and The Grumpy Troll Cafe(great burgers).
After we returned home Jan and I went to the rally again to see if we could get inside any more vintage trailers or talk to any more owners. We did get to talk to a local man who was in the middle of his restoration. It is fun talking to someone that is going through the same steps as us, he has been at his project for 6 years. That was not very encouraging seeing that we are planning the maiden voyage for our in 2010.
We spent the evening visiting with DJ,Amy and Amy's sister Nancy from Florida, it was a very nice time. We had a great supper at the Hubbard Ave Diner, followed by a tour though the rally to show off all the aluminum and then on to Michael's Custard and home.
