I think we all slept good last night and was up at 8am. We plan to take a boat ride today around 11. It is already getting hot out, some have sat out and some have been on walks. Bonnie and her mom picked a few blackberries. Of course Bonnie found a rock to hide away in the basement, another treasure. I caught up on email and managed to get the blog posted. Last night I could not connect.
Off to downtown Wisconsin Dells. I won't write much will let the pictures tell the story.

|Some of the boats behind us|
|Lots of interesting rock formations|
|Our boat was just like this passing one on the Upper Dells|
|This is a Bacteria that starts to grow once the water is 72 degrees it is not an Algae|
|Interesting Rock formations|
|Some of the ducks are used as shuttles|
|On the Original Ducks it was a good experience|
|Sarah our pilot for the trip did a good job|
|We even saw the Trojan Horse|
A front went through this morning a few drops of rain and a little thunder is what we got which is ok but this area needs some rain like most out this way. We are headed to Welcome, MN so better get moving and break camp.
The temperature was not bad most of the morning but we did have to start the generator after we got fuel as it was in the 90's again. The chrome tip came off the generator this morning, it looked funny when I did my walk around, when I grabbed it it came right off. It just needs a screw, I will take a look at it later tonight as it helps keep the fumes out of the coach.

|Road repair the screws come out so I put in bigger ones|
|Still mighty hot|
It took literally hours for the laundry to dry but Bonnie got it done. Dinner was a great salad she made and we all enjoyed that except Dad who said he was not hungry. We topped it off with some sherbet. Then they watched a little TV and we headed off to bed to read a little before going to sleep.
Wednesday July 4th
Happy Birthday to our Country still the Greatest on Earth.
I think we all slept good and were up a little early today, with will be good since it is to get even hotter today. Looking ahead we should get a little reprieve toward the end of the week. Time to pack up and head for Mitchell, SD home of the Corn Palace we should be there until the 6th.
Just a short run to Mitchell around 177 miles, we were in the campground around noon. This is a good stop over campground, we have a level cement pad to park on, the pool is 100 feet out the front door, and the office has super fast internet. I have lots of signal in the coach but seldom can I connect. They say they have trouble with the provider. I think the routers need reset but they are saying they know nothing about it. So here I am in the office where they have two nice recliners to relax in while I update the blog. Best thing is this is a Passport America member park and we get 50% off even on the 4th of July. The folks next to us are from Syracuse and just started full timing.
|Our site 104|
|I love their sign|
Even though the car thermometer said.
|Thats right 104 and the wind was like a blast furnace|
|The left spire is lighter and new the right side is last years|
|They have 13 colors of corn to crete the murals|
|Supper turned out great.|
Since the internet is fast here I will add a few more pictures from the last couple days.
Thanks for checking in.
