Last night in Wisconsin

We are currently in a motel in Crandon, WI, because storms are predicted tonight.  We left Shawano after two nights, which allowed us a day off the bike and to enjoy the Wolf River on tubes.  Our mission was heat avoidance.  However, the day we left was the hottest to date.  We rode only 38 miles to Vee's campground.  This is a great family campground, complete with a pretty northern lake and a bar.  We talked with a great grandmother who has been coming there for 20 years and now her grandchildren are bringing their children.,
Our ride today was 58 miles along great roads and rolling hills, with some challenges greater than others.  The number of challenges made for a tough day, but we made it in time to enjoy a great meal at the Crandon Hotel.
When we left Shawano County, we left behind the Shawano County Barn Quilt Project.  Almost every barn we passed had a chosen quilt square painted on it. Tried to insert picture, but it is late.  I
Will try another time.
Tomorrow, we head to Iron River, MI, leaving Wisconsin behind.  While here we have enjoyed Two Women beer and experienced cheese curd, which appears on every menu.  As for me, I will leave the cheese curds for the Badgers.
