    And a band too?

    If I remember correctly, you weren't feeling much of anything.

    See you there!

    For us flatlanders from ILL it is a treat to ride in SW Wisc. I could not get enough of the scenery and the fun roads.

    On the way up from Bloomington, the Mississippi river provides some fun roads. Here is a picture of Blackjack Road which is just south of Galena. It is is hilly enough that it has the Chestnut Mountain ski resort.

    Thanks to the Madison club for hosting the rally and letting us FIBs cross the Cedar Curtain.
