Tomorrow night at the Abbey will be a fundraiser for the Danny Did Foundation. Come out and witness the triumphant return of The Townes and the debut of the yours truly on the decks. Bring your dancing shoes.

Finally made it on a boat, nice view from out there.

Made it out of town finally. Took the metra out to Harvard then biked up to Kettle Moraine. Camped at Ottawa Lake. The ride up there was perfect, great roads, low traffic. The campsite was also very nice, the small lake was great to jump into after a day on the road. Recently we have also got our yearly Novelty Golf trip, and bike down to the Sox game in. Summer activities…love them.

Pictured below is the best beer that you must be on the watch for when in Wisconsin. Delicious. Trust me. You can get it at the LaGrange General Store and Bicycle Shop which is just south of the mountain bike trail head in Kettle Moraine. It’s a great little store and perfect place to grab lunch and some beer on your way up to the campsite. I have created a map for the route we took up. We took a different way home to allow us to grab some breakfast in Eagle, Wi. at the Hen House. From Eagle we went south to Bluff Rd. then took that west to Duffin Rd. then took that south, nice scenery. The rule of thumb around there was to stay off the numbered busy highways and stay on the lettered country roads. The “aid station” on the map is the LaGrange bike shop. Happy trails.
