Driveway Surfing in Wisconsin

One of my co-workers lives on a beautiful farm in Amery, Wisconsin.  She invited us to park on her property so we went there after Minneapolis.  I recently learned that parking at someone’s house is called “Driveway Surfing” or as another friend put it “Mooch-docking”. 🙂

Whatever it’s called I like it!  I need to find more friends that have room on their property for us to park.  This was really fun, and just look at this beautiful spot!



Jenna and Scott were such gracious hosts and we really enjoyed spending a few days with them.  We especially enjoyed evenings by the campfire!  We surprised Jesse with a birthday cake after dinner one night even though it was now past his birthday.



Jenna took us kayaking one evening.  That was so much fun and the lake was so peaceful and beautiful.



This was the first time Jake kayaked on his own and he did great!




The Amery Fall Festival was that weekend so we got to attend a small town parade and carnival.


As if the kids really needed more rides after Mall of America!



They tried to help Jenna win a goldfish with no success.


Jenna had a temporary roommate from Mexico living with her, a very sweet lady named Rebecca.  She made us a real authentic Mexican dinner one night that was so delicious!  What a treat that was!

We are so grateful to Jenna for inviting us to stay with her for a few days.  We all really enjoyed our time there!

  1. Lol, “Mooch-docking” and “Driveway Surfing!” You’ve introduced us to some cool terminology. (I still like galaxy schoolers!). Sounds like you had a very nice visit, your beautiful kayaking pics makes me miss it!

  2. I’d totally mooch-dock at a beautiful “campsite” like that one, too! That lake looks amazing–what a nice treat to kayak there with friends. It’s awesome that you’re able to work from the road and visit all of these amazing places at the same time!
