My vacation to Green Bay training camp, Packer 5k run

July 31, 2014

It all started July 23 when Richard Reif picked me up at 4 a.m. and drove to Tulsa to pick up Richard's brother, Jim, as we were on our way for the opening of the 2014 Green Bay Packers training camp as well as run in The Packer 5k at Lambeau Field.
We got to St. Louis by noon on July 23 so we could eat lunch at Cousin Hugo's, which is our traditional lunch stop on our annual trip to Green Bay so we can enjoy its wings and burgers.
After lunch, we arrived at Brad Kraemer's house in Prairie du Sac, Wisc., at about 8 p.m. It only took us 16 hours to get from here to there.
