“We traveled with a cooler plugged into the lighter oulet in the semi. Juices,fruit,milk berries held. Recipes originated in Door County when I picked up the sweetest, biggest rasberries this side of heaven. Enjoy!Recipe is for one big serving,We hauled part of a log home from Montana to the shore of Lake Michigan. The ridge pole was so long it stuck out over the truck hood and to the end of a 52' trailer. Not fun when you have rough roads the huge pole is bouncing on top, Enjoy! P.S. The bozo who owned the property opened our truck cab and jumped in and took a picture of the cab and sleeper without permission! How rude! I had unmentionables hanging to dry in the back! He said, I just wanted to see how truckers lived and to record this day. He wouldn't let us wash our hands, just for family use, we had to walk down to the lake!”
