    Ride suggestion:

    OK, people who are interested! I just found out my cabin (which is part of a family "compound") will be kept open through September.

    Which means that maybe I'll be able to bike around Mille Lacs this September when the Park Service has its ride.

    It's flat, it's windy, it's almost 70 miles, and it starts and ends a few miles from my cabin, which means we a nice leisurely meal and if there's not too many of us, I'm sure people can overnight both nights, but if that's not possible there's a campground just a few miles away at the park, and lots of hotels and cabins. My brother will not be up then, so I could stay with any Athenas in his place and any Clydes could bunk in mine. I have 2 beds and 2 shorter couches. There's also a guest cabin that may or may not be booked.

    Autumn is gorgeous up north, and it would be good training for RAGBRAI! I can't cook well, but I do have a kitchen.

    Any interest?

    Sounds interesting! Let's see what the date shakes out to be, because I'll be in Fall Semester then.

    Hay that sound cool! That's really close to my 1st year wedding anniversary. I'm not to sure what the new bride will think of that. She's love a weekend at Mille Lacs, but she's not much of a biker and I'd be riding for a lot of the day. She is one hell of a good cook though! Which is another reason why I used to weight 350lbs. HMMM lets keep thinking about this.

    It's only a few days from my birthday, too. I can't think of a better way to start my 47th year than to ride 70 miles. I only hope I can build up my stamina between now and then.

    Sept. 17 looks to be a Monday. If I can snag the day off I just might do this.

    Okay, let's do this thing. First off, roll call. I'm in (weather permitting) for the whole circle. Wife may be interested in driving as a personal sag.

    Who else?

    Looks like a blast, but that's a long ways away from me. I doubt I'd be able to make it.

    No! There's no RV room. In the middle of the summer there is a spot, but by September the dock will be there.

    There is a campground at Kathio State Park, I see lots* of Rvs there, but I don't know what the services are. I'll check next time I'm there.

    Depending on how many show up, people can crash at my place. I have a double bed, a single bed, a small couch, and a single futon/couch on the screen porch. The cabin is small, but the porch is normal sized, so we could get rid of the the table/chairs and put a foam topper down for a couple people. I guess there's not a lot of clyde-sized sleeping places, esp* if you're tall.

    I'll take photos when I am able to get up there. Maybe today. I'm still down and out from the systemic infection I picked up when I got my root canal. I'll probably be back to 3 miles when I start riding again.

    I can stay in my brother's cabin, along with any loose Athenas we get. (Loose as in unattached--get your minds out of the gutters!)

    There's also cabins for rent that are within a couple miles. They're hurting now with the new Muskie limits, and they'll be dirt cheap in Sept. As will the 2 hotels nearby. I'll bet you could get a room for $35 then, and could still hang out at my place but not sleep on the floor!

    Tent space?

    I can provide my own guest room if I can make the ride!

    If we get enough people, I recommend camping at Kathio. I'd camp there, too! The problem with tents at my place is... well, I'll just have to take photos.

    If we get only a few people, we can pull it off with a couple cabins. But, the truth is that camping sounds more fun.

    It's not too early when that big sun rises on the lake and all the loons sing....

    It's a totally flat ride, with lots of cute little fishing cabins. Although we wouldn't have to worry about heat in Sept, I have to say I've never been hot on the shore. Lots of little restaurants selling walleye sandwiches and beer.

    I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to do this and afford it. I have a house warming party the day before north of the cities, so we couple hit that on the way up. But the next weekend is my one year anniversary, which will be a big weekend in La Crosse WI. The the next weekend we are suppose to go to Lake of the Ozarks Missouri. It's going to be tough to get this all in a short period of time. But I'd love to do this because it's so close and I love the area and I'd love to ride with you all.

    I won't be able to commit to anything right now. I won't be able to give a definate answer till the date gets closer.
