Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

Getting off the road

After Barbie suffered from a stroke earlier this month, we have decided to retire from being full-time RVers and signed the lease today on our "new" home in Oak Orchard, Wisconsin. 4BR, 2BA, 2 1/2 acres with 300' of the bay of Green Bay shoreline in the back yard. The house has not been lived in for some 25 years but the owners are going in doing some renovation and wants someone in it to take care of it. If we could come up with some $400k we could buy it.

Sault Sainte Marie

We were on the road again this morning leaving Marquette around 9AM heading to Sault Sainte Marie, MI/Ont. The city of Sault Ste. Marie is a multinational city whereas part of it is in Michigan, USA and the other in Ontario, Canada separated by the Saint Mary River between them. The city dates back as far as 1668 when the area was first settled by French Jesuits. The name translates to "Saint Mary's Rapids" or "jump Saint Mary's".

Upon enter the city, we first found a parking lot and had a picnic lunch. Suzi and I first then went to the Soo Locks and watched a ship move from the lower Saint Mary River to the upper river then on into Lake Superior. Barb wasn't feeling well so she stayed behind with the truck. Afterwards, we crossed the International Bridge to the Canada side where we checked into the Bel-Air Motel.

Marquette, MI

We got on the road at 8:00 this morning heading first the Da Yoopers Tourist Trap & Museum in Ishpeming, MI. This is a must stop for anyone coming to Yooperland. Then on to Marquette where we found a picnic table along the shore of Lake Superior for a picnic lunch. We opted to stay at the Americas Best Value Inn in Marquette. Tomorrow we'll continue our road trip to Sault Sainte Marie in Ontario, Canada.

Door County

We took a road trip to Door County today stopping in the Village of Egg Harbor for lunch then on to Fish Creek. The Egg Harbor/Fish Creek area is a 100 mile road trip but only 30 miles by boat.

While there, we visited 2 wineries and had lunch at Shipwrecked Restaurant, Brew Pub & Inn. We also checked out the marinas for a future boat trip.
