We have been off line for several days. Wireless access has been limited. Truthfully, I have been enjoying it. We crossed Lake Michigan via catamaran car ferry and sailed into Wisconsin on a beautiful Saturday morning. We headed directly to Cafe Lulu, to get our land legs. We then headed on to Madison. We met up with Uncle T's brother and wife for brats and beer at the Essen Haus...where we witnessed some amazing conversation around us. We turned in early for our mission to Minnesota. A day that began with a visit to the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Wi and ended with an welcome party in Long Lake, MN. More to come..the Mississippi River, storm chasing in South Dakota, Mount Rushmore and the cowboys of Wyoming.
