I lived there 20 or so years and may know you. :thumb:
Wow amasing. There are soo many trains that run through that city I figured someone would have at least been there.
Once I got soo fed up with a job I had there I hopped a fence and jumped on a train that was going slowly by.
And my friends and I almost always walked the tracks because they were safer than the streets where we lived and went to school.
I've been to Wisconsin. I actually have a lot of relatives there.
My Father is also buried in Appleton. He loved Wisconsin with a passion!
He was an avid hunter and fisherman you see and WI is famous for having more than it's share of each. You know, Land of a Thousand Lakes and all!
I swear, take a close look a map someday and you will find that 1,000 lakes is an understatement!
I have a lot of relatives in that area, including Illinois.
I see your in Denver. I myself was born in Colorado Springs while my Father was stationed at Fort Carson, many, many years ago!
My parents took me hiking and swimming almost evry weekend when I was a kid. The closest I ever came to hunting though was fishing. My parents are against guns because of a couple of family and friends deaths that involved them. Nothing to do with hunting though.
Some time I will have to google a good map of WI and get on the phone with my dad who did all of the driving and retrace all of the roads traveled, towns visited, and trails hiked.
I just remembered on trip where it started to pour down rain and my dad decided to take a short cut back to the car. Big mistake on his part even though I enjoyed it. We were lost for about 8 hours till we found a small road in the middle of nowhere and waited for someone to drive by and give us a lift back to the parking lot. I swear that was the coolest trip I ever went on.:thumb:
I have tried to get lost in the Rockies several times wich sounds stupid but I always go prepared.:mrgreen:
