The Northwoods in WI



6/1/09 to 6/4/09

We arrived at the Harbor Campground in Three Lakes, WI on June 1st. We will be here for a month. Joe found this campground and I give him 2 thumbs up. Before we came up here, we called T- Mobile, our cell phone service. They told us, we would have no service up here, because we were in the boonies. We called all our family, and told them to call us on my pay as you go virgin phone, for emergency only (25 cents a minute for the first 10 minutes, then 10 a minute there after for the day). But because God is so good to us, we have 5 bars of service. Praise the Lord! I have cable here and 80 % on the Internet also. We were told we would have to drive 7 miles to get Internet service. I am a happy camper. And when I am a happy camper, everyone is happy too ( the husband and the dog)! We are paying $390.00 a month for full hookups which comes to $13.00 a day (which fits in the budget of $25.00 a day, and makes Joe happy). The last four days have been sunny with temps ranging from 45 - 55 degrees at night( great sleeping weather) to 60 to 75 degree in the day ( perfect weather for us). The last few days, we have been driving around, and visiting the towns and lakes in this area. Joe and I have always dreamed of having a summer lake home. I grew up going to my Dad and grandmother's home on Clear Lake, Ia. Joe grew up going t0 Trout and Spirit Lake. We are finding that lake homes up in the boonies are just as expensive as farther south. It is very beautiful up here in northern Wisconsin. Many yellow maple, tall thin and lacy pines, and white birch trees. Thousands of lakes and streams as well. Last night, Joe and I were walking Mallery around the park, for her after dinner nightly walk. As we were walking a small white dog came running and barking at us, guarding her territory. Soon the owner came out to call his dog. We talked a few minutes, and then he invited us to join him, his wife, and a friend to their campfire. We sat and visited around the fire, till bed time. Most of the RV homes are permanent summer homes with their owners coming up on weekends. Most have been coming to this park for years. Each RV lot is groomed in their own taste. Denny and Shirly, (the couple we meet) have been here for two years, with deck, patio and landscaped, built around their RV trailer, as if they have been here for years. They invited us to go boating with them, sometime this month. Their friend Doug, who just retired in May, also has a boat, and said he would take us sometime also. Today after sightseeing nearby towns, lakes and the National Nicolet Forest, we pulled up to our nest, and our next door neighbor, whom we talked to one time, brought over a plate of freshly caught, fried perch, crappie and bluegill. This is why I love RVing. You see the true nature of people, who have time to breath. Oh, and the fish was awesome! Our parking spot for the month! Restaurant in campground Road trip to Eagle River (town north of Three Lakes) Lots of pines and trees Lots of flat bottom clouds here One of the thousands of beautiful lakes in northern WI Dark clouds that produced a few sprinkles A beautiful day even with these stormy looking clouds A beautiful creation waiting to mate- my presence keep scaring off him off Rhinelander's Hodog- town south of Three Lakes
