Ride Recap: Milwaukee to Kolher Andrae State Park
|Ozaukee County Inter Urban Trail|
|Wisconsin's soul food|
|Steve and I pit stopped in the shade at Karen's Lama Farm|
|This particular lama was kicking his or her's legs, presumably because we were hanging around.|
|The shade is our friend, ya gotta be safe.|
Kolher-Andrae State Park after stopping at a local grocery store, fully stocked with food, ice, beers and ready to cool off in the lake. Hammock camping is my new preferred method when the weather permits; but if it drops to the 40's I'm inside a tent. A big thank you to ranger Ken who upgraded our site, he informed us that it's his favorite site in the park. We later discovered that the morning sun, the crashing waves at night, and being wrist rocket distance away from the lake were a few of the reasons why our site was the best. Also, just across the road was the trail head to the sand dune trail. The previous one we were assigned to was simply inadequate for 2 hammocks and was basically on a giant ant hill.

Notable moments: Andy ran over my banana that fell while riding(no he did not wipe out), Andy dropped the map while going down a hill at 35mph+ and Steve not telling anyone until we were at the bottom of the hill. Steve taking a bum bath at the fish cleaning station, Andy getting stung by a bee, and one flat tire 10 minutes from home. All and all it was yet another successful weekend get-a-way from the city with some of the best buds around.
