Re: Wisconsin Escape Buyers - License and Title FYI

Now that we are home, I fully expected to find the title and license at the Post Office when we picked up our mail -- nope, nothing. So now it has been more than 4 weeks since I was in the DMV office. I emailed them to see what is happening.

Re: Wisconsin Escape Buyers - License and Title FYI

Let me give you guys an update on my DMV experience after they send me home without plate with the excuse they would'nd know how to calculate from Canadian into US Dollar for tax purposes. They kept my application, I paid back then only the title and plate/application fees. My application went to the "research" department for a few weeks.

Few weeks later I got a letter from DMV saying that I should calculate the tax due, fill out the form and send it back. They left the how to convert Canadian into US dollars now to me, hehe. I took a favorable exchange rate, and they accepted. Less than 2 weeks after sending off that letter and check I got title and license.

Just for the records, when crossing the border back into US the border personnel almost assumed that Cafe Egg was not registered yet. They were just very helpful and telling me: "Let me stamp and sign all the paperwork for you, so you can register your trailer back home!".

Of course they only do that for attractive young ladies! Old, stogie types (men), they put through the paces : - )

Re: Wisconsin Escape Buyers - License and Title FYI

Ok, today it all got weirder. I got an email reply to my email from the DMV - stating that they have no record of my paperwork - (even though they have cashed my $1400+ check for the tax and fees.) They said to send a copy of the check. So I called the phone number that was included in the email and the guy I talked to said that the reason I had not heard anything is that they are 8 weeks behind in processing due to all the layoffs from state budget cuts. He said the paperwork was probably sitting in the pile that they were working thru. But then after I hung up it hit me - how could the check get cashed if they have not even gotten to it yet? So, anyway, I sent them copies of my copies of the paperwork plus a check image my bank sent me.


To be continued....... unfortunately!

Re: Wisconsin Escape Buyers - License and Title FYI

The title and registration finally arrived on July 1. But the license plate is still not here, an enclosure said it would be sent separately......

There is something wrong! I got my plates just a day after the title.

Re: Wisconsin Escape Buyers - License and Title FYI

"Blue" finally has a license plate! It arrived on July 23rd, wow those DMV budget cuts have really changed things!

On the positive side we found a beautiful (primitive) campground up in the Northern Highland/American Legion State Forest. It is called Big Lake Campground near Presque Isle - almost to the Michigan border. It is probably the quietest campground I have ever been in during summer months. We camped next to the campground hosts and they said that it is rarely more than 1/2 full - that most people go to the campgrounds closer to the action around Minoqua or some of the other resort towns. Also there are no electric sites, and only pit toilets. But the campground hosts keep the pit toilets immaculately clean. We paddled our new to us (used) kevlar canoe around Big Lake, listened to the loons and sat around the campfire of free wood provided to us by the campground hosts.
