any chance you could be more specific about the route you are taking? Highway #'s and all... I'm trying to figure out if you will be in Minnesota traveling North to Floodwood or north thru Wisconsin and come thru Duluth? I know exact route could change but just a rough idea for now.

Leaving Madison WI at 3pm on Thursday Sept. 13th. Heading west on highway 14 through Richland Center to highway 171 . Take highway 171 west to Ferryville on the Mississippi River. Follow highway 35 north , The Great River Road, to LaCrosse. Cross the Mississippi into Minneosota heading north to Winona Mn.Cross the river back into Wisconsin camping at Perrot or Merrick State Park.Friday continue north on highway 35 to Hudson WI. From there we will either continue along the St Croix River or head over to I35 north to the show.

taking I35 in Minnesota would be the quickest option but there should be some traffic heading north on a Friday. Looking at the map there are some cool routes along the river in Wisconsin, you can cut over into MN East of Hinkley, MN and bypass most of the traffic or head up to Duluth and cross over there. Only adds 1 hour to the drive to drive up thru Wisconsin and cross over near Hinkley or Duluth. I haven't heard from any Minnesota Pinto owners so at this time no reason to consider a MN route for others to join the Pinto train north.

Depending on the route taken (I35 or thru Duluth) I should be able to head your way, meet up and travel the last leg with you into Floodwood.

Brian, I figure we will drive up the river till we run out of time and have to get to Floodwood in a hurry, then cut over to the interstate.

Finally got my camper fixed, bad storm with high winds did a bit-o-damage to the support poles and I finally fixed the issues with one of the beds sliding in. It's ready to roll and use again. I'm going to put some fresh wheels and tires on the other camper in case we need it and I have a 2 person tent. Pintony is planning on sleeping in his wagon on the way up, figured he can have his own place to sleep once he gets here. Also... in case there are any others that want to join us... I still have 2 beds in the camper and a conversion van available for campers if they don't have their own sleeping arrangements. Speak up quick so we can plan for you, the extra sleeping arrangements will not be there unless needed.

2 weeks before the Great Northern Pinto Stampede Roundup! let us know if you want to join or if you are even considering.

Darren and I will be leaving Hibbing today with 2 campers, conversion van and 3 Pinto's + all the camping stuff needed to accommodate any late comers that want to join us in Floodwood, MN. The City of Floodwood was gracious enough to donate some camping sites for the Pinto Stampede as they support what we do for the Wounded Warrior Project. Looking forward to seeing you all and hope the trip up is fun and uneventful for you 5 (Dave, Donna, Jim, Doreen and Pintony) as you head north. I'm sooooo excited, gonna be a great weekend!

The Northern Pinto Stampede Roundup Was A Huge Success! Everybody arrived safe and sound on Friday. Darren Johnson and I setup camp on Thursday with 3 Pintos ready to go. Jim and Doreen Madison and Dave and Donna Kawa were 1st to arrive with their Pintos and campers. The world famous Pintony arrived shortly after in his little red wagon for a total of 6 Pintos going to the Floodwood, MN Fall Color Festival and Car Show on Saturday.

Don Arro was a great help getting this setup with a prime spot for the Pinto Stampede and supporting our cause. I setup a table with water, hot coco & cookies with info about the Pinto Stampede and what we do + information about the Wounded Warrior Project all to encourage donations. Jim Madison of the Pinto Stampede and local supporter John Sharacky worked the crowd spreading the word and collecting donations for Wounded Warriors. At the show we raised $550.00 in donations and again worked on getting the word out about all the fantastic work done by the Wounded Warrior Project.

I also want to make note of a huge shock and surprise. Jim Madison, Pinto Stampeder Extraordinaire (yes, I say it again Jim :) and owner of the Bullet Stop Gun Shops in Illinois and Missouri has continued his fund raising handed me his latest efforts and added to our total for this event another $1,400.00 !!!

With another $1,950.00 added to this years Pinto Stampede totals we have raised over $30,300.00 for the Wounded Warrior Project in our 1st 2 years. Amazing! I never would have thought this possible.

I can't say thank you enough to my fellow Stampeders for making the long drive up to help support my local Stampedes and efforts for the Wounded Warrior Project. Also the local support I have received going to the cars shows, with people like Don Arro and John Characky this weekend and all the other locals that have supported this worthy cause all summer I am truly humbled and appreciative of the support.

I will still continue my efforts at work for the Pinto Stampede and Wounded Warrior Project this event wraps up my car shows and Stampedes for the year. It has been a long road I have traveled throughout the year and around the state of Minnesota and the many car shows. While I am sad for it to end and time to put the Ponies away for a long winters nap I look forward to next year... 2013 !!!
