    I should be picking my vacations very soon. I was planning one of them to start a weekend with this ride, ride the twat and goof around the UP for a couple of days, then head home.

    I figured that I would do it if there is an official ride or not and if there is not an official ride, planned on posting my deets if others wanted to come along.

    Is this a one day ride? It looks like it is about 1000 miles. Anywho, I have a house in Galena that backs up to US 20. It looks like a fun ride. I'm a maybe (too far in the future to make any promises).

    This last years thread, the tracks that are posted above are a combination of the TWAT (Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail) and the TMAT (Trans Minnesota Adventure Trail) I think, not actually the GRGR. but the post above yours is a link to this years GRGR.
