Zone 2 Turkey Hunt

For almost a year now I’ve been working with the Fond du Lac Area Convention & Visitors Bureau to highlight what a great area that is.  It’s close to home, they have wonderful trout streams and great hunting availability.

Memorial Day Camping Trip

You don’t always have to travel far away to enjoy time with the family outdoors.

For us this Memorial Day weekend we chose to go camping at Kohler-Andrae State Park, it’s only an hour away and provides us with a plethora of outdoor activities.

We do a lot with my first cousin and her family, I am grateful to have family that enjoys the outdoors as much as I do.  Zach and I both love their kids and we always have a lot of fun camping with them.

Comprised of 125 campsites, we made our reservations about 2 months prior.
