Door County by Land, Sea & Sky

Host:Dennis & Jane Schmidt
Ginger & Brian Carney

Update #1 (February 7,2023)

In the past 12-14 years of our Door County adventures, we have offered rides, rallies, photo challenges, a GPS challenge, a "zoomazing race", and a ferry trip to the roads and lavender fields of Washington Island, but – even as those weekends were lots of fun, our days were packed full, and there was little time just to shop, visit galleries, swim, hike, nap, or lie around the pool visiting. So because there is so much to see and do in DC, this year we have planned plenty of room to "explore the Door" on your own. Specifics for the long weekend Social will be posted soon, but here is some general information so that you can start planning:
