Quietwoods Resort, Brussels, WI

Bob, Grizz and I got to Quietwoods Wednesday pm. We found a secluded area near the pond and setup our home. The campground is quite large. After going on a few small walks, we discovereed we had not even begun to see it all. There were numerous seasonal campsites in the woods that we walked by. Definitely looked like heaven to us-- if we were ready to settle down in one spot.
Rob arrived before 7 Friday night. After dinner we just kicked back and tried to catch up on each other's lives. Rob is in the "full-time working" world now. After doing work and college for so many years, this is a change for him.
Saturday Rob, Bob and I went to Door County in Rob's truck. Of course, we left our cameras back at the campsite. Saw a lot of people, as all of the towns were having some type of fall festival. Fish Creek seemed to be the most populated. It rained on and off all day, but did not dampen our enjoyment of sightseeing.
Sunday after breakfast Bob and Rob loaded up the kayaks and headed to Little Sturgeon Bay. The rain had ceased and the wind and sun were out drying up the area.
The guys paddled against the wind going to the bay but had a free ride coming back as the wind was at their backs and pushed them. The day came to an end all too soon. Rob had to pack up and head back to the real world.
We were leaving Monday, but since it was windy and rainy again, we decided to just kick back and do Nothing. By Tuesday morning, after being contained inside for too many hours because of the wet outdoors, Grizzly was chomping at the bit to get "on the road again".
We did spend some time Monday on the computer trying to decide where we are headed.
We headed to Nekoosa, WI from Brussels on our way towards Iowa. Since we have not done Iowa in our travels, we will try to make a trek into that state for a few days and visit some "Kewpie" friends.
Bob discovered frost on the truck's windows this morning so I'm suggesting a more direct route south to warm weather. I'm not sure why cold weather is a problem, I can stay in bed until it warms up. But am definitely in favor of going south......


  1. Hi, Bob & Jan! Our cousin Nancy McD B clued me in on your blog! I'm looking forward to following it when I can. I love this type of thing.
    Since we lived in St. Ignace for 8 years (seven years ago) and I covered the truck show when I worked at The St. Ignace News, it was exciting to read about your trip north! Thanks!
    Happy Trails!
