Mississippi River: End of Scamp Season

From October 2021 We started and ended our 2021 camping system on the Mississippi River.   We had one last brewpub to visit:  608 Brewing, named after the area code.  In most parts of the country, you would never see children in a bar.  Wisconsin isn't like most parts of the country. There were actually many kids running around in both the outside space and the inside space. The beer was pricey here, but I have to admit the hazy IPA would have my nomination for beer of the year.   With the Scamp put away, we stayed close to home until December.  The blog will pick up from there. 

Upper Peninsula: L'Anse

 From August 2021

I was at the L'Anse Township Park because it was the only place that I could get a last minute reservations for the weekend of August 20th.  I found many uncrowded places to hang out during the day in the L'Anse area.  


Blueberries were in season.  These were picked from a lady's backyard that morning and sold from her driveway.  The maple syrup had the finest provenance.


My campsite was not one of those uncrowded spaces.


I had a better plan for the next week at a campground that probably has the strangest system for securing a campsite that I've ever encountered.  In my case, it worked out rather well and was the highlight of this trip. Sometimes, good things do come to those who wait.
