Let's Ride!!!!!!


« on: August 11, 2017, 03:20:12 AM »

We are leaving Sunday, riding to Davenport, IA.  On Monday we leave and ride to the Machine Shed so Pete can pick up a cinnamon roll, after that we ride 12 miles west so I can see the World's Largest Truck Stop :-)  I love truck stops!  From there ride up to the Dells.  Tuesday will be a leisurely 180 mile into Minocqua.

Total miles 640.  We could do it in two days easily but we figured we would take our time going up and enjoy!

Well, I'm probably taking the most out-of-the-way route to get to Minocqua.
From Toronto I'm headed north to Sudbury, west to Sault Ste Marie for the first night, then a big day from Sault to Thunder Bay the second day. Long ride up and around the top of Superior (I'll dip my toes in the north side for ya Maggie). Then the 3rd day from Thunder Bay to Deluth, lunch with a friend, and on to Minocqua. I just hope it is reasonable weather. Not fun to ride that far in the rain.

You hit a weak point for me Maggie ..... cinnamon rolls !!!!  Found the ones at Costco, here, are even better than they look.  Best part - they don't seem to add any weight either.  Have Pete look at this one .... this is one of the best things when skiing at Sunday River. A stop at the North Peak lodge is a must for their cinnamon roll -- or as they call it, for good reason:  "sticky bun".  They even have a squeeze bottle of icing on the counter --- just if you need more.  YUM !!!  Do they have wonderful cinnamon rolls at the truck stop ?  Bonus if they do !!

Diane's working Monday so I'll run the camper up there & come home. If you would like to stop by Wausau & pick us up on Tuesday that would be cool. We live right off of exit 191B (Sherman St). We could go a senic route or directly your choice. Its only 70 miles from here.

Thanks, I already have a route set and we are skirting to the west of Wausau.  I have a few big ball of twine places to see ;-)

John, check with the Badger to make sure they have tie downs for your Scooter.  You may need to bring your own.  Be safe.

Head straight up, take a left at Lexington, a right somewhere around Joan's place sometime Monday, reckon to be skirting Rich's house near the clock striking Tuesday and Minacqua around first light + or - 8 to 24 hours if all goes well. No mammoth balls of twine, skillets or caverns on the agenda, just burning fossil fuel at a disgraceful pace while southward reflections expediently recede in the mirrors. Other than hopes of enjoying a few days riding Wisconsin for the first time, seeing some folks, meeting others the only other agenda item is stopping near Joan's place on the way home to finally visit with my great great great grandfather.
Wishes for safe travel and enjoyment to all!

Thanks Joan that will come in handy. I'm planning on stopping by there on the way home. See you in Minocqua (I can now spell Minocqua correctly 2 out of 3 times without looking.)
