2021 lates restuarant

Lates has been around for a long long time. During the days when Gypsy went to high school this was the lunch time hang out.

The food is always good. Cheese curds and onion rings are very popular and quite delicious.

Gypsy and Lonestar at Lates. Visiting Lates is a tradition whenever we get to Manitowoc, WI

This restaurant is one of those small town icons that has survived all these years. It will be one of those places we visit anytime we are in Manitowoc, WI.

2021 POINT LABADDIE brewery

Inside seating. There are several picnic tables outside if you want to enjoy the fresh air.

Brewing Room

We had a great time here. We were there on a Thursday. On Thursdays they have a flea market and food vendors. There were several vendors with various products. We met lots of great people.

A nice variety of beer.

For the non-drinkers, they have a great root beer.

This is definitely a place where we will stop again. The owners are great. there is a huge parking area for RV’s. We were parked on one side and there was another huge area on the other side of the building. Four RV’s showed up while we were there.

Definitely a place we will return to.


A brewery with a generous selection of beer plus restaurant with a varied menu. The staff is friendly with great service. This brewery is owned by a veteran. Veterans who eat here get a discount.

We didn’t get any pictures but is has lots of seating at the bar and plenty of tables. We had some food and it was very good. This is another Harvest Host and it was worth the one night stop.

2021 hill PRARIE winery

Hill Prairie Winery is unique. The winery building is actually designed from an old barn.

Being an old barn you can still recognize where the stalls used to be.

. Wine Selection

There is a n upstairs where weddings and gatherings are held. The upstairs used to hold several hundred bails of hay

They serve food on Fridays with a very limited menu. We had the steak and it was excellent. The baked potato is topped with a very tasty garlic butter sauce. If we ever return to Prairie Hill I plan to try the ribs.

Couldn’t resist taking a picture of this sign.

We definitely recommend the Hill Prairie Winery.

2021 Apple creek, De PERE, wi

Once again we visited Apple Creek Campground. Its the perfect location for us because it is a short ride to my family.

Apple Creek Campground has two levels. There is the main campground then there is an upper campground. This is the campground we use because it can accommodate larger RV’s.

The newest thing since the last time we visited Apple creek is the new path at the upper level campground which lets you walk down to the lower level.

Footpath to pool

Creek Crossing

In prior visits here we had to down to the road and walk along a busy highway in order to get to the main campground. It is so much safer and the walk is great exercise.

On Mondays and Thursdays there are water aerobics classes. The class lasts about 40 minutes. At that time the pool is closed except for those who attend the class.

Apple Creek is a great campground. The lower level has a large play are for kids. Clean restrooms and showers.

Enjoy camping?? Come to Apple Creek.

2020 CMA Fall color run

Every year the Christian Motorcyclists Association holds a fall color run in Mena, Arkansas. The main goal is to raise money for the Run For The Son which involves various ministries. Their is lots of fellowship with other member throughout the United States.

Worship service. Great messages from CMA leaders and uplifting music from the worship band.

It is always planned during the fall color season. Groups go out viewing the fall colors.

A unique dining experience is enjoyed by members. This is an original train car turned into a dining car. Great food.

it was a great time at the CMA Fall Color Run and looking forward to the 2021 International Fall Color Run where CMA members from chapters around the world can attend.

Indoor Seating

Since we visited here during Covid restrictions it worked out well with the fabulous open air concept. There is seating inside and out.

The huge parking area has the plenty of room for Rv’s and local patrons.

It is an open air establishment with seating inside and out. Their home brews on tap can be purchased. Food can be ordered form an outside food hut with many choices. Staff was very friendly. This Host site is very popular with the locals
