Day 34: Wisconsin Dells, WI to Fond du Lac, WI - 83 miles with 1,800' of climbing

Today we started out under cloudy skies and wet pavement but the weather report called for clearing by 10:00 and they were right on... another day without rain. It was a beautiful day riding along smooth rolling country roads under "Simpson" like clouds. We road through Briggsville, Packwaukee and Montello.

We stopped for lunch at an American Legion barbecue in Princeton where many of us had tasty brats, corn and soda before continuing on through Ripon and Fond du Lac. Once in town some of us needed a laundromat and some of us needed a beer. We found a place called "Shooters"...a pool hall, laundromat and bar all under one roof. I played the laundry lottery as I pumped quarters into machines hoping to find one that worked. After several hours and a few beers the laundry was done and we headed back to the hotel for dinner.

Roadkill: 310
Flats: 4 (My new armadillo had to be replaced due to a 1/4" cut.)
Hurts: Minor pain in left knee during only certain parts of the ride.
