When asked if my sticker was reflective I responded with "No, XML does not have reflection" and three people actually laughed because they knew what I meant.

We're so tough.

Blister Run Complete

Got home last night at about 7, having driven 552.6 miles, very tired! But it was well worth it, lots of fun!

Yay, Tobies!


Stopping to remap due to a detour, Stacie decides to make a hands free call.

Hell's Kitchen

Woah, what do you mean we're EARLY for our reservation?!? Maybe Lora can fil the time with the story of Boris and Natasha's fight in the motel parking lot last night...

Sup town!

6:35: With just a smattering of rain and no incidents we pull into Superior WI to our not so shabby hotel across from the Hammond.

Port Wing, WI

5:26: Halfway to Superior. Yays. Getting colder though.

Leaving the island

3:30: Off to Superior after a lovely day on the island. It's a sort of "low rent" Mackinac island, and a lot of fun! Got some great souvenirs, too!

Lunch on the island

After a nice - though cold - ride around the island, we're having lunch on the deck. Erik took a spill on a corner - gravel sucks. Other than some scrapes and scratches he's ok, thankfully. Oh and I got to take pictures of a lesbian wedding party on the beach. Except they left before giving me the beer they promised to me... A sprinkle or two here and there but no real rain yet...

Riding the ferry!

After a long wait for breakfast we're finally boarding the ferry for Madeleine Island! Not only did we get the "moped discount" but the captain herself checked our tickets! But then, can you blame her?

5:29: Bayfield,yay! And no rain!


... 2:52pm..

Cumberland, WI

12:20: Made it to Cumberland with no troubles! Lots of wonderful Wisconsin lettered roads, cows, and not too much roadkill.

Blister Run 2008

9:15: We're off to a great start.. Well.. Tom R is off to get gas and Erik is bodging his spark plug...
