Sault Ste. Marie Ontario to Boscobel Wisconsin

The day started cool and turned overcast in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. After we went through Escanaba, it started to clear and warm up. By the time we turned due west south of Oshkosh Wisconsin, it was quite hot.

We arrived in Boscobel on the banks of the Wisconsin River in late afternoon. We went to the City Park where they let us camp on top of what we call Fly Hill after an Iowa VROCer. This rally has several social milieus depending on whether you are camping or which hotel you stay at.

After setup, we went downtown to Snick’s Fin and Feather, a bar that has become one of the gathering points of the Great River Run Rally. Bikes were parked in a side street next to the bar, which had been blocked of by the town for our use. VROCers abounded and we stood around talking until sundown when the motel people went back and we headed for the park. A fire was already going and we sat up around it until quite late.
