Starting at 12:00 noon we will meet at Gus' Drive-in, East Troy.  Here you can enjoy a sandwich/burger or you can stop somewhere to eat later after completion of this driving tour.


After our lunch we will start our leisurely fall color tour of the Southern Unit, Kettle Morraine State Forest.  We will provide each car with an instruction sheet and  a WDNR map of this State Forest.


We will drive on six well-paved and winding scenic state and county highways past the Old World Wisconsin Outdoor Museum, farmlands, woods, lakes and thru rustic small towns like Eagle and Palmyra.  You can drive at your own pace and stop wherever you like for scenery, photos, etc.  The posted speed limits are typically 35-45 mph.  Total driving time is about 90 minutes.


At the conclusion of the trip, you will be on Hwy 83 in Mukwonago.  From there you can drive 2 miles on Hwy ES to the Elegant Farmer for some of their famous bakery or drive directly back home whenever you like.


Let me know if you would like to join us for this lunch by Oct 10, so we can notify the restaurant.  You can also just participate in the fall color drive.  Call, text or email me if you have any questions.  Hosts are Bernd & Christine Kampe at 262-492-4441 (mobile/text msg) or email  [email protected]
