POST 1342; JUNE 08, 2014; WEST BEND, WISCONSIN



48 hours ago, arrived at the home of Cousin ERIC and his family.

Except for 1.5 hours walking alone through the  city of WEST BEND, WISCONSIN, have spent the entire time with one or more of the family.

Plan to spend one more night before heading North to the CANADIAN Border via GREEN BAY, Wisconsin.

ERIC is Son of my Sister Carol.




Please say HELLO to Daughters KATELYN and NICOLE.

Eric and I exchanged various electronic equipment while he down loaded new GPS and Map software into my HP MINI Computer.

Discovered my Great Great and Great Grandfathers' Maynard both lived in the MILWSUKEE area very near WEST BEND.  Am tempted to stay a bit longer to follow up any descendents still living nearby.

Sad to have missed KATELYN's softball practice this evening.  This blog update was only 50% complete when practice began.
