    It was a nice weekend. I left home in a sprinkle on Friday around 8am, and wandered out I-88 and up I-39. The weather cleared out nicely before Rockford, and I had sunshine the rest of the way to Chuck and Dawn's house.

    I stopped for lunch at the "Coffee Cup" in Rosholt for a fish sandwich.....and I found out why they call it the Coffee Cup, because they only give you ONE cup of coffee. :lol3 The rest of the trip to Mogs went pretty quickly.

    I think I only arrived about four hours ahead of everyone else, so we had a nice chat and walk around the property before the first of the KLR posers arrived. Chuck is also selling a bike, and somehow I managed to get half of it clean and detailed before the buyer arrived. And of course the guy didn't buy the bike......I'm fairly sure this was an elaborate ruse to get me to clean Chuck's bike. :lol3

    The afternoon and evening weather was perfect on Friday, and after some terrific chili, we wandered down for a pleasant bonfire under the stars. It was a great evening for camping.

    I left Saturday morning around 8am, and fought a cross-wind and occasional sprinkles all the way to Milwaukee. Then the sun broke out around Mukwonago, and it was pretty warm the rest of the way to my house.

    Thanks to Chuck and Dawn for rolling out the red carpet this weekend!

    Hats off and a mighty bow to Mogwai and MogNurse putting together what was orginally a tech day, but morphed into a rally. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality.

    Mog, your grasshopper has turned into a frog.

    Great time!!:thumb

    Sorry I miss you guys on Saturday night, but I had an itch to ride/camp and wanted to visit with some other old friends on Sunday.

    I bugged out around noonish on Saturday and meandered down to a friend's place near Blanchardville. I visited with him and then camped on his other property, giving me a 30 minute ride back up to the Slimey Crud Run this morning.

    My camp on Friday night.

    I ended up with a bit over 600 miles of wandering around Wisconsin. I also tried something new with my GPS, which is now in Avoid Highway mode. I think it'll be left there for a while, too..:lol3


    Thanks again to Mog and Mognurse for a great time!! Now it's nap time and then I have to mow lawn.:bluduh

    Thanks, Mogwai and Mognurse! You have a great place there. I had a fantastic time and finally got to see a DooHickey get changed.

    About 520 miles for the round trip. The ride home today was a challenge with 40-50 MPH crosswinds all the way.

    with a combination of tiredness, hangover, and cross winds on the ride home, i truly understand why the grasshopper must turn into a mole for total victory.

    that was a hell of a good time. good people, good foods, good roads. :clap
