Franks is the place to go for breakfast.
Mike Bjorn's Clothing (and museum)
Orson Welles started out here.
Don Ameche started out here.
Al Molinaro started out here. I couldn't pinpoint the house but it is on this end of the block.
Daniel J. Travanti started out here . . . but the house is gone now. Funny how these actors all came from the same small area in Kenosha.
Kenosha Old Gas Station
Russell Military Museum (just across the Ellinois border).
Kind of a junkyard of military stuff you can crawl on.
I wonder if they give rides in this rollover/egress trainer.
Mars Cheese Castle has a big cheese eating rat. Must be inside. Closed for Corona.
Great Lakes Dragaway
Blue pins are oddities that have yet to be captured. Cabins are old gas stations yet to be captured. Magenta are railroad structures not yet captured. As of May 11.
Waterloo - Jimbo the Mouse
This place had a giant cheese eating rat outside when it was the former cheese business. Still a cheese business but they got rid of the rat.
Little Amerricka Take off on Great America theme park. Guy that made money on another business decided to create this for the kids. He has some interesting railroad equipment there that hauls people around the park.
Georgia O'Keefe got started here.
Sun Prairie makes a BIG deal out of their ground hog day celebration. Big doings. The Chamber promotes this stuff. I think the ground hog bit the mayor on the ear one year. If you were born on Feb 2d, you can become a member of the Groundhog Club. The Chamber will send you a birth certificate. They've been at it since 1949. Jimmy the Groundhog.
Madison - Elvis Fight Scene
If you park in front of the building next door, don't get irradiated.

Forest Hill Cemetery
Chris Farley is entombed in the chapel building.
Closed when I got there.
Forest Hill Cemetery
A lot of substantial monuments in this portion of the cemetery. Worth browsing.
Confederate Cemetery at Forest Hill.
As a result of the Battle of Island Number 10 the Union picked up about 7,000 prisoners of war. 1,000 of those went to Camp Randall in Madison.
Some of those prisoners died and were buried here.
When the recent objections arose about Confederate monuments around the country, Madison chose to remove a couple of monuments from this cemetery that were a tribute to these dead soldiers. I guess I have a soldier's perspective, but I really don't think that those monuments should have been removed.
Some pix from others from when the monuments were still here.
I just don't see what is so overwhelmingly objectionable about this tribute.
Waunakee Goat Tower
Knocked off the Madison tags today. Updated map for the southern area.
Went to the Mississippi yesterday. I was the only bike on the road. Dam it was windy. Last year the water was so high that my bike would have been standing in water. Hasn't been this low in a while.
Much better photos than I would have taken of the Greater Burlington Area. The Wild West town was open summer of 2018 if my memory serves me right. I was out of town for 2019 but I think they are a Memorial Day - Labor Day type of business.
Those egress trainers are a great form of fun and torture.
