Pretty active weather pattern today. It was clear and fairly warm and windy this morning and then thunderstorm development later in the afternoon. Had it not been for the wind and later rain, I would have been a hot mess. Here is the current radar image out of Green Bay.
We are staying in Appleton, WI which is a 40 minute drive to the event. Tomorrow will be interesting to see if we have any traffic to deal with. People are everywhere but it's nice that we are staying away from the main event as we can get dinner within a reasonable time frame without too much waiting. Last night a coworker took us to the Black Otter Supper Club in Hortonville, WI. This was a very casual place with people wall to wall (a sign the food is good). We had about an hour wait but access to a bar with reading glasses apparently (see left). The food was great, company better, and we managed to stay composed despite the long wait next to the bar. Must be a sign of age... for me anyway.
Here is a map of our commute every day.
We spent only 1/2 the day working the event today setting up our two booths. Both of them are in close proximity to each other so we can check on everyone as the day unfolds. Once we were done we headed back to Appleton to eat at a local brew pub. Burgers, beer and cheese curds were had. On the menu tonight... we dine at the lake.
We are back out at the event tomorrow early. Check back for move pictures. Be sure to follow me on my personal Twitter account for frequent updates.
Thanks for checking in!
