To Haugen

Once I got off busy SR 8 and started following the rural county roads, today's ride got better and better.

The terrain is much hillier than what we've been riding recently.

Wisconsin is America's dairyland.

In Cumberland, we had brats with sauerkraut to support a local fundraiser and because they smelled so darn good and had a great drive-up window.

We're camped at Shady Rest Campground and Bar - what a combination! It's decorated with George Jones memorabilia and hundreds of fishing lures on the ceiling.

Our campsite is close to the edge of Bear Lake. It's a very quiet spot, unlike the bar where I'm posting this entry. It's shoulder-to-shoulder, people are shouting to be heard, and David Allen Coe is blasting from the jukebox singing "You Never Even Call Me by My Name." Uh-oh, the live band is arriving in 5 minutes and the lady sitting next to me just asked me to smell her wonderful perfume - bug spray. Time to end this and leave.

Miles completed = 2474
