You went through UW Madison and were able to stumble out without hitting anything?!? You must have an extremely high tolerance. I know that everyone says, "Oh man, we used to have the craziest parties at my school..." but Madison (I didn't go there, just visited a few times a year) seriously was insane. I had a great time and anyone that has visited, especially during Halloween, knows exactly what I'm talking about!

My girlfriend goes to school there. Yes, I was there for halloween. Yes, I almost died. Yes, it was fun. No, I wasn't there for the teargas last year.

Although, Madison is an easy campus to ride. It's even better when you just go and do the ironman bike route which starts practically on-campus.
