    I spent every other summer of my childhood in this area, and a few of the places the Gerald overlooked would include the Kettle Moraine with great hiking and views; Fond du Lac which is home to a lakeside park with a miniature train ride and small children's zoo, a real old fashioned drive-in with car hop service and the only saloon which Carry Nation really did attack with an axe; and Appleton which was the boyhood home of Harry Houdini.

    Buck, maybe you can get you to write one of these routes to cover some of those areas of Wisconsin that Gerald missed? That would be really swell!

    Buck beat me too it, but I was going to mention Kettle Moraine.

    Specifically, I'd start actually heading towards the village of Eagle and tour the "Old World Wisconsin" historic site. then go north through the Kettle Moraine State Forest, and rejoin this route near Oconomowoc.

    I'd also mention that in addition to the annual Fly-In, there is a fantastic air museum at the EAA site in Oshkosh.

    Coming back, there are several great state parks right along the Lakeshore. I'd also consider a stop at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc which has a featured attraction of a WWII sub that is available to tour. That's actually on my list of places to visit here yet this summer.
