Side Story: Minnesota has a huge Motorcycle ride every year called the "Flood Run". Essentially a motorcycle ride was created to go down on the Mississippi river and help local residents sand bag against the flood. Since then, the
group has an annual ride to commemorate the event. It is hard to describe. The ride has turned into thousands of Harley Davidson riders.
Our ride was on the same weekend. You literally needed ear plugs from the roar of those Harley bikes.

We planned our ride into beautiful SW Wisconsin to be moving in the opposite direction of the ride. We would pass bars with 50-100 Harleys parked outside.
Beside the horrible noise, it was kind of exciting.

We took back roads sweeping through the countryside. Our destination was
the Detox Bar and Grill in Arcadia Wisconsin. Great ride, great day.

TheDetox Bar has Wisconscoot Historical Significance
Dave,

Riding to the first Wisconscoot Rally, I had mistakenly washed my
rain suit in hot warm water and totally removing the water reisistance
of the suit. On the way to the rally it was raining and I was completely
soaked.

We went back roads to the rally in Sparta. Next to the Detox bar, our lunch stop, was a laundry. I stripped off all my cloths and put them in the driers.
I walked over to the detox in some dry underwear out of my bag for lunch.
I then retrieved my dry cloths and proceeded to Sparta.

Great adventures.
