Hope you all had a nice Labor Day weekend. We traveled north to Wilderness County Park north of Necedah WI. It is on the west side of Petenwell Lake. It is the second biggest inland water in WI. Being a flowage the algae bloom can be nasty and create some green soup. It was bad on our first day there but seemed to clear up the next. The wind direction really plays a big part in that. On Sunday some of us did get a swim in.

Now her dad is really something. 83 years old and lives to cut firewood. He probably has a couple year supply cut and stacked around the place. He also cuts and sells to some locals and campers. He is also an avid deer hunter. As I entered his garage I spied a ground tent blind. I thought to myself good, as it will keep him out of the tree stands. I could not have been farther from the truth. Seems he hoisted a pallet 15 feet up a tree, attached some plywood and has mounted the tent on top of that. He does all this with no help. I ventured out with him as he was setting up a trail camera. He also continues to do seasonal work during the cranberry harvest.
We camped with Colleen and her family and Wendy's brother Randy and fiance Lynn. Our grandson Alex also made a trip to see us. He is starting college at a La Crosse area tech school. The weather was very hot on Fri. to start but turned out to great the rest of the weekend. Good to spend time with family.
