Leaving Michigan by boat was very exciting. We took the Badger across Lake Michigan, deciding to opt for less driving in order to arrive at Oshkosh, WI fresh and ready for the Airventure activities. What a great decision. The crossing was smooth, though a bit chilly, and beautiful. There are always characters to watch and conversations to listen to. We particularly enjoyed watching one of the deck hands listen to his IPod and dance to his own drummer through out most of the 4-hour voyage. He'd willingly dance with who ever wanted to join him, as well.
This particular trip took four hours, and the company made a great decision to make sure all passengers would enjoy the trip by providing activities for children and anyone else who wanted to participate: coloring contests, bingo, Badger "Idol," and a movie. There was also food....all bases were covered
We love the water and thoroughly enjoyed the voyage.
Currently we're camped and enjoying the air show...but Internet is spotty. More news from the travel front as soon as we can get back online. "Roamin'" loved getting up close and personal with an aircraft today - a Douglas DC-3 named "Douggie." Photos to follow!
