wigirl920,
You should check out some state parks in your area. I see your from Calumet county so you can't be to far from Point Beach State Park. Maybe get us some pictures of the area for the Wisconsin Picture Thread.

Actually, High Cliff State Park is much closer. Plan to go there sometime in August...I'll be sure to take my camera along!

When I lived in Appleton, I went to High Cliff all the time. My favorite time to go hiking was in the autumn, when there weren't many people around (I was bartending at the time, so I also went during the weekdays--sometimes I had the place to myself). I always hiked along an old field...and even though it seemed like there weren't that many trails, I always seemed to find myself in a different spot than I had been in before. I have good, quiet memories of High Cliff.

Some work around the house this weekend - some painting and stuff as we get toward the end of a minor remodel.

In my spare time go out for a couple of bike rides - 20 or 30 miles as I try to work my mileage back up after being off the bike for a couple of years. If my wife's up for it we'll take the tandem out for a shortish ride to the marsh - call it 16 miles for the loop I've been using.

What kind of bike do you have escapetacoma?

I do some riding myself, I have a Schwinn 14 speed road bike, I love it. I do about 15 miles when I do ride. Portage doesn't have much riding opportunities within the city itself.

My half bike is a Mariposa Randonneur:


Our tandem is a Bushnell. You can see pictures of it here:

I can't say that I've found much riding in Waupun either Fortunately the Horicon Marsh and Wild Goose Trail are just to the east of us. Actually I'm not all that fond of the trail - crushed stone surfaces are awfully noisy - but it provides a useful connection so we don't need to ride on Hwy 49 (though the couple of times we've done so it wasn't too bad.)

I'm hoping to work out a nice loop around the marsh but I don't expect to be up for riding that until next year.

Awesome bike! I ride, too but not seriously like you guys. I do ride up to Point Beach but not lately because of the skeeter situation.

UP was great, but they've had alot of rain, too! In fact, a storm while I was there took down some trees, one between my sisters and her neighbor, fortunately did not hit the houses. Alot of standing water around, and lakes/rivers seem high. She is between Gladstone and Manistique so I don't know how the west side is doing. I like to go visit but did not even consider it when I was thinking about moving last year!

That's one of the things that I've particularly enjoyed about riding around here - I'm going fast enough (not very fast at all, but fast enough) that the mosquitoes aren't an issue. There were several days that I got nailed just dashing to/from the garage, though

At least you have fun Susan.

Escapetacoma, that looks like a comfy bike. I can't ride off road on gravel trails because I have road tires with scott bars. I've had the bike up to a whopping 41.7 Mph on a straight stretch.
