    Awesome trip! I can now definitely recommend the T.W.A.T. It's not overly technical, so anyone can do it. I think everyone on our trip had a great time. I know I certainly did. Probably the best adventure ride that I've ever been on. Thanks so much to @rokklym for establishing the route.

    I also recommend the TWAT ........and wisconsin cheese curds (filled a saddle bag on the way home). I had a great time! Big thanks for the miscellaneous help from orangecicle and ZLTFUL for things like water, burnt lighters, great photography (orangecicle) and much more!

    The cleaned up version of the shot from Crystal Lake -- one of my favorites from this trip. Wishing I was back there now.
