After our showers we needed to get going so we dragged the pups away from their new chipmunk entertainment and headed for Prentice, Wisconsin. The Johnson family reunion was waiting and it would be nice to be in one place for a few days.
Along the way we found a Super Wal-Mart and believe it or not we hadn’t seen that many on our trip so far but we needed to pick up some potatoes for the meal we were making for our group of 18. We decided that the easiest thing to make would be a potato bar so we bought 20 lbs of potatoes, cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, broccoli and chili and would have plenty of extra incase anyone wanted more than one. It was a good plan especially since we thought we were cooking for everyone tonight.
About an hour outside of Prentice we stopped for gas and really needed a place for lunch. In this area of Wisconsin if you are not a local your choices are limited and even if you are a local your choices are limited. We found a burger and sandwich place about a block from the gas station. Sandra got a hot ham and cheese and I had a cheeseburger with some soggy fries. We didn’t worry much about the fries, we were in Wisconsin so the beef and cheese were going to be perfect, after all that’s what Wisconsin is known for. The food was messy but really good, when we get home it’s going to take quite a bit of fiber to set us straight after this meal.
Just as we were pulling into Prentice we realized we didn’t have cash to pay for our VRBO (the listing is on VRBO.com under Creature’s Retreat), we forgot to find a bank in time so now we were going to have to hunt for one in town!
We pulled up YELP! and searched for a bank, there were two. We mapped the address and drove 5 miles per hour through town looking at every building but no bank. We asked a local who told us it was where our map said it was so back we went at 4 miles per hour, searching… nothing. Then we looked across the train tracks to the little IGA and on the other side of it was a HUGE sign “Community Bank” (someone should update YELP!)
