Excel-lent weekend

Hi all,
  We spent the weekend at Country Roads Campground in WI. Dells.
 Country Roads is  a campground for adults only, which was a big change after camping in a Jellystone Park. It is a nice clean park and the owners and workers were friendly.
   We were camping with our Excel Club of WI. Our club is made up of owners of Excel campers made by Peterson Ind. in Smith Center, Kansas.

 We had a nice showing with 13 rigs attending. We camp twice a year officially, one weekend before Memorial and the weekend following Labor Day.We do fish fry on Friday and potluck or dinner out Saturday. We do like to eat :).
 We also have been having another camp out during the summer that is not official to club members only. One other thing we have been doing is having a winter icicle outing. No we don't camp but stay at a motel. We go out to eat (did I tell you we like to eat :) and find a tour or activity on Saturday.

  On Saturday we toured the International Crane Foundation located in nearby Baraboo. We took the guided tour which was quite interesting. The work they do there is multi purposed. They promote habitat conservation, assist endangered  species and education. They maintain a flock of over 100 cranes including the only complete collection of all 15 species. It was very interesting and a good time.

 On Sunday we had breakfast and said goodbyes. With handshakes, hugs, and all the well wishes it got to be a happy/sad moment. With our plans for fulltiming and workamping next year we do not know if we will be able to camp with them next year. Hey, you can all come and see us anytime!
 We came back home to Ottawa State Park until Sept. 21, then a Halloween camp out at Indian Trails in Pardeeville, WI.

  1. So nice to get together with other campers..especially when they have the same rigs. We've looked into the Montana Owners Club.
    Love the cranes!
