Tuesday Notes.

We were up at 05:00Am and had coffee, about 06;30Am we joined Karen & Linda for some more coffee, Karen made some of her world famous Northern Wisconsin French Toast for breakfast, it of course was great. it was a cold dreary day, So no sightseeing was planned. On the way ip to Wisconsin I noticed that a repair I had of a scrape on the edge of the front of our roof had started to peel back.Sam went to the RV dealer with Karen and bought some Eternabond tape and two tubes of Dicor self leveling sealing caulk. On the way back we went and saw Karen & Steve’s old house in Green Bay.

When we got back we had to wait until Steve got back from work and then he put the ladder up and we looked at what needed to be done to fix the fiver. Steve had the neatest ladder that folds up and stores in his motor home.

He climbed up and took pictures and noticed that the caulk installed from the factory on the top at the front cap was starting to crack and peel from 5 years of hot sun so he decided we would repair that also.





          Every job needs a Sergeant to supervise.



The Lieutenant named Karen came out to help make sure Steve was working.

Anyone who reads Karen & Steve’s blog will know that Steve is a meticulous craftsman in all the work he does, His modifications to their Motor Home are legend. We were so glad he made the repairs for us since Sam is to heavy for the roof and doesn’t like ladders, The finished work was much better than you could have expected from an RV Dealer. it is so nice to have friends like this.

For supper we had some salmon off the grill and leftover spaghetti. Is this high living or what. a little after 08:00PM after another night of great fellowship Sam was tired out from all his watching Steve work and called it a night. Hopefully the rain will stop on Wednesday for a trip to the train museum.

Rigg’s is having a ball with  his new friend’s Duke & Ducky get along great with him are are playing with their new toys. I know he loves his vacation and isn’t looking forward to going home to soon.

Got a call from Adam and wanted to know when Grandpa was coming home, I told him soon and that when we got home he would be going to the Lake again for some more camping.

We are enjoying our stay in the north woods of Wisconsin, even though it had rained everyday, there is no 100 degree heat index ,little humidity, and the nights are cool so no A/C is needed in the fiver and you sleep like a log.

Well that’s about it for today, Be safe out there, Sam & Donna…..


  1. RV repairs are just a part of camping, eh?? Seems we always need to tweak something! Have fun..ya, hey dere!

  2. Sounds like your having a good time with Karen and Steve. To bad about the rain the weather here is perfect mid 70's.

  3. It's great that Stevio was able to help you out. :)

  4. Glad you all are having a nice vacation!! Cool temps would be nice here....send us some!! LOL

  5. I'm so glad you made it to WI. Steve does a wonderful job on the motor home. I've been following them for a long time. We'll be parked in that spot next month. Have fun!

  6. Happy to tell you I received your comment just fine. Thank-you.

    We too have friends in Wisconsin, Tim and Vincetta at Monster Truck World in Wisconsin Dells. That's only 160 odd miles from where you are. *smile* We tried to fit in a visit with them when we were in the States a couple of years ago but limited budget and time meant we had to forget it and hope there'll be another opportunity.

    It's hard to believe that only two years ago we were on the road from San Fransisco to Vancouver. To be more precise we were somewhere around Silver Falls NP and Salem Oregon. It seems a lifetime since that trip.

    I can see you are enjoying every moment of your holiday. Keep up the good work.


    PS I've just added another Blog to the ones I follow. It's a wonder I have time to live but I couldn't resist following your link to Karen and Steve .... Now I can enjoy their Blog too. MargieAnne

  7. I'm with ya on that staying off of the roof stuff. I'm sure I would probably just fall right thru if I went up there much.

    I did have to put a tarp on the broken skylight one night, but scurried right back down as soon and my stubby little feet would carry me.


  8. I keep trying and trying to get a blog post done myself of our visit so far, but you keep me hopping!!!
