MONROE, Wisconsin – Aging red-wood barns, fields of corn, and grocery stores named Piggly Wiggly… I must be back in Wisconsin.
Cycled across the Illinois/ Wisconsin state line this week; a little behind schedule but that’s what happens when you have a plan – Mother Nature always wins.
Rain delays have forced me to seek shelter; in those times of urgency anything will do. Normally I prefer being indoors, but crossing through Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri I cooled my heels for about two nervous hours under an open-sided pole building across from Hillbilly Park.
It was a junkyard of sorts that sold itself as antiques.
It’s these kinds of places and the people that make the tour unique.
