See our list of Best RV shows for 2018 winter & spring.

Two of our recent posts review some of our favorite restaurants along the Great River Road north of Dubuque, Iowa. On the Iowa side of the river is the Breitbach’s Country Tavern in Balltown, Iowa, Iowa’s oldest continually operating tavern, currently operated by the sixth generation of Breitbachs. On the Wisconsin side is another piece of history, the resurrected Potosi Brewing Company (1852) has an excellent pub and restaurant within the brewery, in addition to brewery tours, the National Brewery Museum, and of course excellent Potosi beer on tap.

We also recently finished posting our Fall Color Trip along the Upper Mississippi  Great River Road and our spring trip to the Florida Panhandle (Destin HarborWalk) and along the Natchez Trace Parkway.

  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. 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 website.

    Happy Traveling,


  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

    Good job!!!
