In preparation for my first Saddle Sore 1000 Challenge, I’m sharing with you what to pack for an Iron Butt / Ride 1K in a Day ride. This means that I rode over 1000 miles in less than 24 hour timeframe, on my little (but mighty) Harley-Davidson Sportster 883. The route I planned was to […]

The little lady and I completed the Fern Dell Gorge Hike within Mirror Lake State Park. We absolutely love the Sauk County area of Wisconsin (aka the Driftless region). This hike was perfect for us. It is a short 1-mile hike (loop) on top of the standstone formations. We went on mid-week afternoon, not another […]

Just a few miles south of Sheboygan, Wisconsin is Kohler-Andrae State Park. We made a quick pit stop to stretch our legs out at the beach. Hearing the waves from Lake Michigan was so welcoming to us. Come to find out the water had been so high, it was hiding most of the actual beach. […]

How in the heck do you come up with family activities during quarantine in Wisconsin? It’s been hard to see our calendar so empty. We had so many travel plans, so many new adventures to take, date night places to try. All of that is currently put on hold. I am sure you are feeling […]

If you haven’t taken the Mitchell Glen Tour in Green Lake Wisconsin, do not wait. The Green Lake Conservancy only hosts TWO public tours each year. They sell out fast! This limited tour is something our family highly recommends. Both in the early summer and late fall, you will not be disappointed if you attend […]

When Winter arrives, it’s time to get creative with the kids. There’s only so much time you can spend in doors together, before you all go a bit stir crazy. Snowshoeing in Wisconsin is a great activity for any age and requires a lot less coordination than skiing. So the learning curve is very small […]

I took a short hike through Hartman Creek State Park in Waupaca, Wisconsin just a day or two after a snowfall. It was perfect to get out, enjoy some fresh air, the quiet and stillness.

Many New Year’s resolutions begin by removing something from your life. Lofty goals that are hard to maintain, we wanted to keep it simple. We sat down as a family and went through what we’d like 2020 to look like…it felt so “full” of new adventures, new experiences, and new memories to create.
