U.P. North Today

Thursday, August 14, 2008 -- near Beaver Dam, WI

When we stay some place for more than just a week or two, virtual roots grow down into the earth and grow deeper and thicker with each passing day. While the mind says "come on... let's go already!" these roots have to be dealt with. But the bus-house has had enough power to pull these roots out of the ground and move us on to new unexplored places.

The drive today will be a bit less than 300 miles, so we'll be wanting to get started earlier than normal for us. If we're on the road by 10am, we should be arriving at Camp Soldner just in time for a late happy hour and dinner.
