Wisconsin is pretty and the asphalt is smooth. They obviously have the same kind of winters as Minnesota, so I'm wondering why the roads are so much better. 

I'm in search of unusual cheeses, but haven't spotted any. I did enjoy fried cheese curds at the Main Street Cafe in Bloomer.  They also had litany of pies that rival the glorious stuff we had in Montana.  As well, there are no "fake" pies like the Saskatoon Berry the Canadians tried to foist upon us. (Saskatoon is just bland blueberry.)

It was the first really hot and humid day of the trip, but otherwise uneventful.  I stopped for lunch at Kistner's Korner, run by Jayme.  She's a bundle of energy and told tales of past cyclists and snowmobilers that she's gone out of her way to assist.  Jayme, don't be surprised if you find a couple of lobsters on your doorstep in a few weeks!  If you can't make it to Maine, perhaps I can bring a bit of it to you.

Jon, you are awesome! I am proud of your bike ride across America.

I have decided that I will make one exception to my WalMart boycott just to see you scoot through the aisles with your feral children, FeliXbox Minecraft Addict who throws shoes at his sister like an angry jihadist, and who herself is content to eat her toenails. (You have no idea hard and uncontrollably that has made me laugh.) But I am not confessing to having brought them to the big box store to buy whatever they want when I was in Bend last April.
