    Thumbs up 10 Day Rally!

    Hey Jim,

    Looks like we'll need to stay a little longer or extend the rally to get them all in! Looking forward to seeing you in the Bier Garten! Can it stay open for 10 days?

    Bob

    Outstanding job!

    Very impressive, and I wish I had your eye for photography.

    "2beers" and I were supposed to have ridden thru much of the Kettle Morraine last Sunday in order to rough out a ride sheet for the 2007 Rally. To have such great riding so close to the rally will provide many people with incredible sights and fun.

    Unfortunately, both of my parents are ill, and my recent weekends have been busy with my parents.

    Hey, 2beers..how did you do?

    Cool Tour: Green Bay Heritage Tour

    Most Stagecoach routes are as straight and stop at as many towns as possible, and the Milwaukee to Green Bay Historical Trail is no exception. It travels north/south about 10 miles east of West Bend. I have never taken the whole ride, but I have taken pictures at various spots.

    In 1803-1860 the lands lying between the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers and encompassing the present states of Ohio, upper and lower Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and parts Minnesota were called the Northwest Territory.

    In 1849, President Zachary Taylor released some of these lands, thereby making them available for purchase for homesteads. Some of these lands were documented as purchased as early as 1847, although the State of Wisconsin was not officially formed until 1848,

    A good place to start the Ride is west of Cedarburg in Hamilton.



    1880 Stagecoach Stop in Rhine Center, Sheboygan County



    1891 Historic Meat Market
    Howards Grove

    Howards Grove Meat Market has been in continuous operation for more than 100 years, with only four owners. The Market makes German Style Products.

    This Meat Market is excellent, but too pricey for me, I get my bulk custom meat from Bernie's Meat Market in downtown Port Washington. http://www.berniesfinemeats.com/shop/

    Cool Tour: Horicon Marsh, the largest freshwater cattail marsh in the United States

    Horicon National Wildlife Refuse Area.

    The best place to access (and cross) the north end of the Parkway is Highway 49 as it cross the Marsh is State Highway 49, exit off of Hwy 41, and head west towards Waupun. Several scenic overlooks around the marsh allow you to view the marsh's different highlights, including the birds and animals that reside there. Follow the brown signs for the Horicon Marsh Parkway, an estimated 50-mile auto tour that encircles the Horicon Marsh, and follows state and county highways through Burnett, Kekoskee, Horicon, Mayville and Waupun.

    The auto tour provides access to facilities and sites in and around the Horicon Marsh, including Horicon Department of Natural Resources Service Center on Highway 28 north of Horicon (920-387-7860) and Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center located on the northeast side of the Marsh on County Trunk Z (920-387-2658).

    The Parkway is easily accessible from West Bend by following State Highway 33 to access the south end of the Parkway.






    And when you are in Waupun check out the End of The Trail Statue

    Overlooking two river systems, the Oconomowoc on the east and the Little Oconomowoc to its west. Both rivers are connected to a major grouping of lakes just south of the Washington County line. The whole area is filled with woods and marshes. Directly to the east of Holy Hill lies Glacier Hills County Park.

    # Turn left and head west on Highway 167 to Holy Hill. The exit for the shrine is Carmel Road. Some of the more scenic back roads can be accessed from county Highway K, county Highway Q, Monches Road and Hubertus Road, which is an extension of Freistadt.
    # Upon leaving the Holy Hill area, head west and turn left on Highway 83.
    # Follow 83 into North Lake, then turn left and head east on county Highway VV. Follow VV, which turns into Silver Spring Road, back to Highway 45.

    Cool Tour: Wisconsin Automobile Museum/Hartford/Hwy 60 west/15 minutes from Rally

    Auto enthusiasts can visit the Hartford Heritage Auto Museum and its collection of Kissel cars in Hartford. The Kissel family manufactured automobiles in Hartford through 1929 and "Black Tuesday"s crash of the stock market. KisselÔÇÖs were luxury automobiles purchased by the wealthy from coast to coast, including the Hollywood movie stars of the 1920s.

    Cool Tour: Mazomanie

    1857
    Mazomanie Railroad Depot
    Oldest Wooden Depot in the Midwest.





    Mazomanie, WI
    The slow growth experienced by the village has resulted in remarkably well preserved buildings dating back to the 1850's. Thirty-four of the commercial buildings in the downtown have been named to the National Register of Historic Places.
