On the road again.....to Chilliwack

We are in Wisconsin Dells tonite, saw one fg on the road....made good time, 15 hours @20 mpg @ 61 mph avg=919 miles traveled, arrived here at 2 pm and took a long nap. Tomorrow we stop in Minnesota to see out E19 we sold last year to John and Marti, who will be joining us in Osoyoos this year, then off to Bismarck, ND.
Wisconsin has some great cheese and the Dells is very interesting area. May need to return for some camping.

If you have any time to spare you should hit Devils Lake state park.

And welcome to Wisconsin!

On the road again.....to Chilliwack

Also a welcome to Wisconsin from us: you are staying about 45 minutes north of us tonight. Sid Cook is a fourth-generation, Master cheese maker out of Lavalle, WI, and a family friend. Quite innovative, and sells his cheese under the Carr Valley brand, if you encounter it… Sid has about a million pounds of cheddar in his warehouses at any time.

Agree with Mike about Devils Lake. It’s Wisconsin’s most popular state park, followed by Peninsula State Park in Door County (the “thumb” of Wisconsin).

Wishing you safe traveling, a fun pickup for the new trailer, and a great rally. Look forward to meeting you at the Mississippi Rendezvous in September…

Wouldn’t you loooove to sleep in an “egg” instead of hotels?
Congratulations on your new purchase! Hope to get a “house tour” in Osoyoos.

WE made it here this am, Linda and Dave are holding down the fort, Monday is a holiday and Tuesday is our scheduled orientation and pick up. Had some bad storms Thursday and Friday so we decided to keep going from Bismarck and arrived here early in am.

I would assume that they have a reserved parking spot out front with your name on it....

No, but I heard about your attempt to place inside my unit similar to "Kilroy was here" when you were here....

I took the EcoDiesel over to Columbia the other day, about 140 mile round trip. Got home I was indicating 27.3 on the display. I was hoping I would do a little bit better.

That's about what I use to get with the Cummins. One thing I'm not a fast driver. West of Billings you're a little above 4000 feet. Then you have the climb up the Bozeman Pass. That climb up east of Butte will also drag down the mileage. I plan on setting the A screen for the trip up to Chilliwack with the B after I pick up the trailer.

It was pretty harmless, I was disappointed they wouldn't do a personalized photo for me.....oh well, it's the thought that counts!

I wanted to do the same with a friend who will be picking up same day, except he is still on the road and I'm here now. I sent an email saying since I got here first, I get to choose between his and mine (he ordered a carbon copy of my build, except maple vs oak)
