First time I went up after the charge I found no teenagers or idiots hanging out wrecking and littering like before. All the cheapskates went elsewhere. Became our favorite place to go!

I am very strongly opposed to any kind of toll road that should already be covered by taxes and fuel taxes. Not to pay a toll for all the workers who have to be paid to maintain the collection of the tolls and the toll system. Heck, WI even has a highway ferry with no toll (Merimac), really cool.

Living near Sturgeon Bay, we were very interested in joining everyone but are too busy to camp in the Scamp that weekend in Egg Harbor. We hope to stop by though to see and meet a few of you over the weekend. Might just drag the Scamp around the camp to say high. Sure are glad we are not FGlass wannabees anymore.
Who knows?... with a little breeding we might leave the riff-raff and become full fledged members of the "Hoi-Polloi"!
Especially if (like a deer with a little doe) we can come up with two "bucks"!...

From what I hear, on the bike paths they don't charge for pedestrians or any kind of skates even "cheap" ones

Thanks for the laugh Floyd.

If you have not yet been to Door County and biked you are in for pleasant surprise. It is a very conducive area for biking on both trails and roads. The only place in the whole county that I know of that charges a fee is just the mountain biking trails in Peninsula State Park. The regular trails in the park, which there are miles of, are mostly shaded and very well maintained. The views and sights are outstanding. If you like biking of any kind you are coming to the right place. And, because of all the water, it's typically cooler in temp so you are not usually baked when riding.

We like to bike through the park up to Ephriam, get some ice cream(not hard to know what place to go, just make sure to grab a number at the counter first thing). Head back and hang out and swim at the beach in Nicolet Bay, pronounced without the t for the MN tourists, (picking on my wife, lol). Ride back over to Fish Creek around 4pm. Pick a bar around happy hour time and get a table for dinner beating the rush around 5-6pm. Try a fish boil at Pellitiers in Fish Creek. Endless things to do, especially with bikes.

You want to have some real biking fun?

- Drive up to the tip and take the ferry to Washington Island with just your bikes for a whole day. It's a big island and yes, there is a toll for bikes and yourself. But a lot cheaper than taking a car across.
-ride from Sturgeon Bay to Egg Harbor on Bay Shore Drive
-ride the Ahnapee Trial from Sturgeon Bay - Algoma, Free!! Not much shade though.
-ride anywhere around northern Door and Newport State Park
-ride any road hugging the lake shore side on a hot day
-ride the roads near Whitefish Bay and Cave Point County park.
-Bike Potawatomi State Park, the forgotten park. It has 99.8% shaded roads that are quiet and great biking. We live a mile from this park and use it as a workout with our road bikes.

You could come to Door County for years and never stop finding cool things to do. And, you will have a hard time not coming back every year.

Illinois charges no reservation fee and requires no park sticker when camping in their State Parks and the camping fee is often less than Wisconsin's . Floyd , Illinois could take lessons from Wisconsin on fees and tolls but it would only be for the worse !!!

PS By the way I paid close to $ 4K in Wisconsin taxes last year

Wow Steve, $4K in taxes! $11 bucks a day. I see your unhappiness but you do have a choice. Sell the property and camp in IL. I pay the same and am perfectly happy with the police, fire, no toll roads, services and they still educate my kids yet, though that seems to be changing so I may join you.

Good biking suggestions, thanks for the input and recognizing the other state parks, other than Peninsula
We've arranged a fish boil at Pelletiers for Saturday night, Home
They will give us a good price of $16.00 for the regular fish boil, but that includes desert (cherry pie!), tip, tax and nonalcoholic beverage. We will need a firm count as early as possible.

We need a total on Thursday (June 12th), we only wanted to have folks think about it sooner rather than later. Sorry if I made it sound more urgent than necessary.
They are planning on less than 60 so we have to give them an early heads up.

Eggstravaganza in Egg Harbor

Check this out-http://www.eggharboreggstravaganza.org/ We have to admit we considered this name for the rally, but feel fortunate that the art will be on display around the village when we are there.
Current forecast is 60s and low 50s.

Take the "tony" off and it works better:

Door County Beer Festival - Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin

I may have to go. I (modestly. Right) admit my Pat's Porter was #1 in the AHA US competition back in the day. My IPA was #2 the year before.
