    Sounds like another great trip! Been to all those places except the campground in Oregon. Can't say enough good things about Pictured Rocks and the UP! Love it there!!! Make sure to post up pictures :D. If they have Belgium Red in stock at New Glarus I would recommend picking up a couple bottles to try. It is very sweet (not everybody's thing) but something I would recommend everyone tries at least once. It is like a blend between cherry wine and beer... Are you en route now or is this trip coming up later this summer?

    The first 425 miles brings us to Terre Haute, IN.
    It's a convenient stop over putting us 300 miles from Madison. Lake Farm Park is quiet with RV and tent sites. It sits along an extensive trail system used primarily by cyclists.
    It's busy this time of year in concert with UW events. There's a nearby boat ramp.
    I've not seen the New Glarus Red so I'll be on the lookout.

    A rather abrupt end to this trip. A bout with Omicron. Both Wife and I tested positive with the home test and an additional test. Worst part for me was 48 hour raging sore throat. Three weeks later and I'm still coughing. No fever, some taste loss and O2 level didn't drop below 95. We isolated for five days and our friends brought us food and items of need. Think but not sure we probably picked up the Virus at a rather crowded pizza joint in WI.
    Did get back out and did some Jeeping before returning home.

    You had any sitings Class A or signs?
    Our only siting in all our travels was in BC south of the Nass River Bridge in 2019. It was a road crossing. Perfect conditions. Mind expanding experience.

    4 days to departure. Very stoked.
    Front end of the Jeep tow points were recently rebuilt by Maximus-3 and a mod to the Blue Ox tow bar giving it more stability. I rewired the electrical plug RV to Jeep. It was getting intermittent.
    Installed a TPMS.
    Jeep is loaded.
    This will be the longest trip for us in the new to us Nexus. 2.5 months.
    Looking forward to beating the east TN heat in the UP of MI.

    Nice! It's 67 degrees in WI right now with a high of 71 for today. Took a bicycle ride to the shore of Lake Michigan this morning :).

    We spent four days in the Copper Harbor area. Lots of ATVers, and back country bicyclists.
    We did some woodsy Jeeping. Some dust and some mud. Beautiful area.
    Favorite areas, Eagle Harbor and Lac Labelle. We've moved on to Manistique and Lake Michigan.
