Oh Yah Der. Vamoose To Da Slide Pond?

Can you translate this sentence: "I'm gonna vamoose to the slide pond, but I hope I'm not looking like a strubbly stump mover."

i could not.  Not until I took the UW's Dictionary of American Regional English quiz.  It's a survey of how well you know the Wisconsin dialect.  I knew one of the words in the survey, but the rest were a mystery to me...and I've lived here for over 20 years.    That's one heckuva Uncle Arthur.
