First Campsite

Image

According to AT&T tech support, I am camped in a dead zone, so posting is a challenge.  I expected problems like this because of the remote locations I would be camped.  I am currently unable to post photos to Twitter and opening e-mail is very difficult with sites taking as long as ten minutes to load a single page.  Early morning seems to help.

I took the photo above about ten minutes after setting up my camper; home sweet home for the next few days.  I’m not far from home.  Only about forty-five minutes away.   I wanted to stay close at first in case any problems occurred.  Everything was going fine.  My gear worked; my camper’s electrical systems worked so my refrigerator, lights and water pumps all worked.  However, when I hooked my truck to my camper and drove away, I discovered my trailer brakes don’t work.  I’ve made an appointment with a Chevrolet dealership to have the wiring checked next Tuesday, so, I’ll camp for this weekend and begin my trip, hopefully, next Wednesday.

Governor Dodge: Pine View Trail

Governor Dodge 005

Governor Dodge is one of my favorite Wisconsin State Parks.  The Pine View Trail completely circles the lake.  A branch of the trail will take you onto the bluff pictured across the lake.  It’s a five and a half mile hike over moderate terrain.  One of Wisconsin’s largest parks it features nearly forty miles of hiking trails and is accessible from the Military Ridge Trail, which is a bicycle trail that will take you forty miles back to Madison.  The park has two lakes and two campgrounds with over two hundred sites, but this very popular park fills every weekend, so make reservations if you plan to stay.

For more information about this park check out this link: http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/land/parks/specific/govdodge/
