We are currently working on a series of articles on scenic drives in Southwest Wisconsin. The landscape in this region was formed by a unique geological occurrence that escaped the flow of glaciers and as a result is known as the the Driftless Area. This has produced a landscape of rolling hills, steep bluffs, rock outcroppings, mixed woods and fields, lush valleys, and creeks and rivers abound. It is also a largely rural area whose villages have retained their character. The first three posts in this series are:

BentleyVille Christmas Lights Duluth, MN
The Bentleyville Christmas Lights Village uses 3 million lights to create a winter wonderland celebrating the holidays.

Last winter we continued our exploration of the Florida Gulf Coast Scenic Drive from Pensacola Beach to historic Apalachicola, Florida. If you are in the Florida panhandle this fall, plan to catch the Florida Seafood Festival in Apalachicola.

  1. Food, that we enjoy cooking, that’s are most favorite pastime no problem saving money there. As for places to stay, we plan on staying the vast majority of time in remote, mostly free or cheap sites (we hate commercial camp grounds so they are just not what we are looking for.

  2. Thanks for the tip Ron. I’ll take a look at your site soon. Sorry for the delay in responding. Somehow missed that this came through.

  3. rvcrossroads.com is a non commercial site written and maintained by Ron and Martha Hughes, a retired newspaperman and a school teacher. maybe you can consider adding it to your list of blogs.

  4. Thanks David for the compliment. The Trace is a neat ride isn’t it. We have 2005 QD which is now going into winter storage until we take our spring trip. If you ever do any traveling in the north central US you might also enjoy our SuperiorTrails.com website.

    Happy Traveling,

    Ross

  5. What a wonderfull site. I have a 1999 FD Rialta and just returned from a great drive down The Natchez Trace.Plan to spend hours here before I plan my next trip. Thanks, David Evans

  6. I’m in Sault Ste. Marie bicycling clockwise Duluth to Duluth. Wonderful trip. Thanks for the help you gave me earlier when I emailed asking for advice.

  7. Hi Marianne,

    Good to hear from you again. I’ve added information on your new boondocking website to our RV Camping & Travel Resources page.

    In two days we are heading for Wisconsin’s scenic Door County hoping to catch some nice fall color and explore the many interesting things to see and do there.

  8. Hi Ross and Jo
    About a year ago you contacted me to request a link to your site. I put it off at that point (can’t remember why) but have just checked back to discover that your posts have continued to grow and…Wow! Your blog has become a great valuable resource for RVers.
    Good job!!!
    You’ll find the link here: http://www.frugal-rv-travel.com/RV-Travel-Blog.html
