Monday, September 7th: Labor Day

The driving continued today, certainly labor for Dave. I am still yet to attempt driving the truck with the camper attached. I always offer but Dave is not a great passenger, can’t sleep, type or read and gets antsy to get back behind the wheel so he is happiest as the driver (I’m happy too actually!).

We left Sand Creek and headed northwards, back past Chicago, through Illinois, up to Wisconsin. It was a pleasant drive into the ‘state of cheese’ (this is what everyone said whenever we mentioned that we were going to Wisconsin!). We arrived at Devil’s Lake State Park late afternoon, having stopped on the way for groceries at a store called Piggly Wiggly – not your typical name for a grocery store!

The state park campground was beautiful, very spacious, we were reasonably close to the toilets and playground. We hadn’t remembered that we had no water hook-up until after we’d leveled and unhitched the camper, so Dave had to get creative with funneling water into the camper. It worked perfectly and we had a lovely couple of days.
