Monday, August 30, 2004

I woke to good weather in Mauston, WI. I had plans for a busy day but got a late start because I was lazy and slept in. The day's first stop would be Carr Valley Cheese. They usually make their cheese in the morning so I probably missed the live show. My second stop would be The House on the Rock, a strange, mystical place where imagination and creativity are the toast of the day, every day.

My driving for the day would take me due southeast through Wisconsin's Dairy Heartland. My final destination would be Chicago, IL where I had tentative plans to meet someone I met on the internet for some biking. A few days earlier I posted a message on Chicago's www.craigslist.org under the "activity partner" category. I put out a cattle-call for anyone who was interested in meeting up with me while I was passing through the area.


My overnight was close to my first stop. The drive to Carr Valley Cheese was somewhat scenic.
