Midwest Renewable energy Fair 2009

Wondering if anyone has been to the energy fair before. The family is going this year June 19-21 2009 staying in Steven Point WI, and the fair is in Custer. We'll go on Saturday so can check the area friday if we have time, later sat or early sunday.

Besides the fair, I'd like to check out the area a bit. I see northwest is the Mead wildlife area and if that would be good to see. We plan to stop then in Fond du lac wisc on our way to Milwaukee for a couple of days.

I really enjoy the energy fair, and can highly recommend it. There are a lot of exhibitors, and you will definitely learn more than you already know about the latest in alternative energy systems.

Stevens Point has a great walking and biking park, the Schmeekle Preserve, right near the campus. There are many parks along the Wisconsin River, too.

The Mead can be good in a rainy year, but the weather has been dry this year. I've heard mixed reviews when the weather is dry. The animals tend to be more active when it's wet, is what my friends in the area have told me.

There is also the Point Brewery, if you are so inclined, and Belt's soft ice cream stand, which has lots of good stuff to mix in with the ice cream, if that's something you enjoy.

The Farmer's Market downtown is also pretty good.

Hope you have a great trip!

We will never waste our money on it again. A lot of people smoking pot.

We are not the type of people who are into this but wanted to try it once (especially since we are only 15 minutes away).

The Portage County fair is going on that weekend as well in Amherst (east of Custer). Sunday is free admission day.

There is also Hartman Creek State Park.

I forgot about the green trail circle and also the tomorrow river state trail. These are real nice trails.
