I started this travel blog when I picked up my Oliver Legacy Elite, "The Wonder Egg", in March of 2008.  As a recent widower and retiree, I found it very cathartic to share my wanderings with anyone who happened to come upon this rather quirky journey of a guy "Pete" and his dog "Oscar", both of whom made blog entries and generally "smack talked" one another.

After  ten years and 120,000 miles of rolling across the US and Canada I have acquired a new tow vehicle, and a new traveling companion, "Bosker".  Bosker and I are on our second year of long wanders and shall continue taking long trips during the Spring through Fall timeframe.

Short, pithy postings of our adventures now appear on my facebook page, which is found at:

Save travels, and may all of your wanderings be joyous!

Ancient, Giant Fisherman spotted . . .

Here we are on the last leg of circling Lake Superior.  Munising is a great tourist destination for folks looking to Kayak at Pictured Rocks or take a boat tour.  It has been a fun trip around the lake.  Wind blowing off the waters could instantly lower the temperatures by 30 degrees!

As we drove towards Duluth, MN Bosker yelled . . .

"Hey Pete! Did you get a load of that?"


"That giant, ancient fisherman back there."

"What's so special about a fisherman?"

"This guy is old, I mean really, really old.  He's even older than YOU and 
the fish he caught is bigger than any you you'll EVER catch."

Well, taking the bait I made a quick U-turn and went back to find this guy.  We found him in Kenenland.  He stood 30 feet tall and he caught a 25 foot long fish.  They stood still and  posed so long for someone to invent a camera to get his photograph that he, and the fish, sort of petrified.

This is no fish story, we have a picture to prove it.

Lake Superior.  Here we are, camped on a small inlet that feeds into the great lake from Wisconsin.  Huge, north, cool, noteworthy.  The largest of The Great Lakes, it deserves to be circumnavigated by The Wonder Egg.
And so it shall be.

Go away Pete!

Have you ever had one of those mornings where all you want to do is reach for the coffee to get your brain cells moving while someone else is bouncing around the room, all happy and animated, telling you "Wake up!  Lets get going! We've got lots to do!"  ?

Well . . . . today is one of those days.

Back to the Mother-ship

Every so often, The Wonder Egg rolls back to its birthplace for a little TLC and some modification updates.  This is one of those times.  We are camped out at an exclusive, members only campground in Hohenwald, TN ready for tomorrow's factory appointment.

Bosker is getting back into the swing of being on the road, smelling new smells and breaking new hearts.  If you put on your imagination cap, he even looks a little bit like a heart in this picture.
