Join us through the scenic Kettle Moraine along the Southeast Wisconsin Overlanding Tour for a day of trail and road fun! This is a full day of overlanding, and stock rigs are welcome!
Our adventure will begin for breakfast at the Riverview Restaurant in Kiel, WI, at 8 am (optional), and then at about 9 am, we'll begin our convoy north. The northern route takes us through many gravel roads and wildlife areas, including Camp Sinawa, where we will do a few laps of some slow speed trails. It's advised to have mud tires and a functional four-wheel drive for our tour's Camp Sinawa leg. We'll be donating $10 per rig to Camp Sinawa, and they will have an optional chili fundraiser where you can buy cold chili and cookies for home.
Next, we'll head to United Ministries, where we'll drop off non-perishable food for their 3 food banks, toys for underprivileged kids, and clothing for their thrift stores. United Ministries provides 300-500 meals for the poor in SEWI EACH WEEK year-round. We'll take a drive around their property and see one of the few registered historical landmarks in the area.
After United Ministries, we'll continue to weave through the beautiful Kettle Moraine roads and trails.
Around dusk, we'll end up in Sheboygan to tour the amazing Making Spirits Bright hosted by the rotary club to donate food and funds. We suggest having Christmas lights on your rig and turning them on as we enter the park. We usually do this after the Jaycees Holiday Parade, but since that got canceled this year, we'll make it part of the overlanding tour.
For supper, we will plan to meet at Luigi's Restaurant in Sheboygan, where we'll light up the rigs in the parking lot. Their menu is at - https://luigissheboygan.com/menu if you want to take a look.
