 One last entry on this adventure.  We left the Best Western just before 10.  About 30 miles down the road we stopped at the Norske Nook in Osseo as was my plan.     

I ordered the Steak Lefsa Wrap, steak, scrambled eggs, cheese, onion, hash browns with hollandaise sauce and one Norwegian pancake.  Lefsa is a Norwegian type of tortilla is the best way I can describe it.  My Mom would make a big Norwegian dinner on Christmas Eve for my Dad’s family.  She worked hard preparing this meal with 7 kids under her feet.  It would be lutefisk, which is a gross fish I would not eat, potatoes rolled up in the Lefsa.  Us kids ate it without the fish of course?   It was absolutely delicious.  :D.    Afterward I ordered a piece of Mint chocolate chip cream pie.  Again amazing.   Here are some pictures.

We got home around 5.  It was hot, had just a sprinkle of rain which cooled things off for a bit but it came back.  Rode a little over 300 miles.  Had a great trip.

Same here, if the Covid stuff gets worse that way I probably can't come. Just ridiculous that people just ignore every precaution.

It's starting to look not so good in some parts south of the Border. While I'm not too concerned about our group riding and socializing, for me the concern is the overnight lodgings to get there and back. I've met and seen some real #$&^! people on my travel back home from wintering down south. I'll withhold making a final decision until the beginning of September and see how things are looking then.

It looks like a great ride with some cool sites. I would have had the pie for breakfast like you did, too!

Today Our 4th and final loop “The Highgrounds Loop”

We headed to Osseo to have pie at The Norske Nook it was about 30 miles southeast of our motel.  Had I known about there breakfast I would of not eaten at the motel.  Bob didn’t eat at the motel.  Didn’t care for there selection.  I had blueberry pie he had an omelette.  There menu was to die for.  We are going back tomorrow on our way back home.

We continued on our route towards Neillsville.  Just before we arrived at the Memorial Park we came across the Silver Dome Ball Room.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  They still use it.  We then arrived at the Highground Memorial Park sitting on 155 acres in tribute to Wisconsin Soldiers.  There are separate areas honoring soldiers from WWI through the Iraq War.  They have two Honor Rides each year.  Memorial Day and in August.  Very well done.  

After spending some time there we continued our loop back towards Eau Claire.  The heat was a little less.  We lucked out and had no rain but we could see it around us.  A couple of county roads we were on had some construction.  We rode about 7 to 8 miles of different types of gravel/dirt roads.  The longest stretch about 5 miles.  All and all it was a good day.  

We head home tomorrow, after  the Norske Nook stop. 😊. We had a great 6 days riding and seeing some interesting sites.  When done we will have ridden close to 1300 miles.  Our Best Western Plus worked out well for 5 nights.    Here are some pictures from the day.

Our flowers are out in all their glory just now.  The peonies are amazing, and the lilies are turning out spectacular. So I grabbed a couple photos of the peonies and the lilies.  Thought I’d share them with you all.  Raindrops from the night before  made them look nice.

Fully faired bikes can be a real hassle when it comes to changing out a headlight bulb.  Neither the GL1500 nor the GL1800 Gold Wings were fun to change out the headlight bulbs.

Neither Alaska nor Idaho have motorcycle inspections.
