We're going to do a long day trip to SW Wisconsin this Sunday. We're headed out to the Trans-Wisconsin Adventure Trail... or at least the section of it that is between IL and Prairie Du Chien... we're going with another local Jeep guy (we won't be in Eugene this time, but the Blazer).

Reading about the trail, it sounds like it might be something fun to try for spring/fall months... get a small group together and run it in 2-3 days, camp...

Per the website:
Quote:
The Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail is a 600+ mile route that starts at the Illinois/Wisconsin border near Galena IL, and finishes northeast of Cornucopia Wisconsin at Lake Superior. The trail was designed for dual sport and Adventure style motorcycles but it can also be done by high clearance vehicles with a slight route change.

I hope to have pics when we get back - I was thinking maybe arranging a weekend trip later in the year if anyone is interested. Maybe good for those folks near the mighty Mississippi?

Saw this on Expedition Portal. Looks like fun. Probably not going to get stickers made up to celebrate running the trail.

Count me in!

Agreed on the sticker sentiment! :shock: :ROTFL:


Here's the "after" write-up. Certainly something I'd like to go back and do in the warmer weather. Aaron wants to bring his mini-motorcycle to run it too.
