The Jackson & Clark county July 2006 DS ride: Nobody died... Actually there were only a few crashes, but nothing serious. This ride is called "Wisconsin Death Trip" in reference to the Static X song and the book by the same name which chronicles the secret history of life in Black River Falls, Wisconsin, circa the late-1800s and early-1900s. For whatever reason, the seemingly cozy hamlet of Black River Fallsits population largely comprised of Germans and Scandinaviansbecame a haven for the mentally ill, teenage random murderers, lovesick suicides, baby killers, a brick throwing, coke-snorting anarchist, and a host of other bizarre and aberrant behavior that ultimately said more about the populace than any sentimentalized portrait of earnest, God-fearing country people ever could. This ride takes place in the same area that the book talks about, so thats how the ride got its name. The book is basicly a collection of photos and related newspaper clippings that document the strange happenings in this area and show that the "Good old days" may not have been that good at all. Our ride was the result of a few PM's thrown around last winter between two strangers on this forum, rokklym and KTM300. Shawn ( KTM300 ) had a place for us to stay so we decided to get together in July and ride Clark county together. We finally met at the Enduraid Rally and Shawn talked to DruiD and I think he was thinking about throwing something together also, so the stars aligned and everything fell together. Jay ( DruiD ) said we could base out of his cabin and even ride some of his land too, this was shaping up nicely! We met up a few times for some pre-riding and got a route figured out and actually got our only death, a BMW!
