Day 3 TWAT... Kind Of

Day 3.

Well we made it home.

This morning I woke up to the sounds of my neighbor snoring and couldn't stand how greasy my hair was so I washed it in the drinking water faucet which was very cold but refreshing. We left Cornucopia along with the snoring man and headed into Bayfield for coffee.

It was surprising how much response we got from our bikes. You would have thought we parked a couple of chromed out choppers for people to gawk at.


From Bayfield we headed down to Washburn to stop by a family friend. After that we headed into barksdale to see my aunt and uncle but they weren't home at the time. Taking a quick look at the beach that I practically grew up on we proceeded into Ashland. I stopped by my fathers grave and then we went to get some breakfast/lunch at the Golden Glow. The Golden Glow is a great cafe in Ashland that really hasn't left the 50's.

We were trying to figure out the best way home when Isaiah came up with the idea of heading East into Michigan and then South home. It was a great idea turning our Trans WI trip into a Trans state trip. The ride was going fine except that my shoulder muscle was causing me severe pain. Pain to the point where I stopped at a grocery store and bought Ben-Gay to rub on it. The Ben-Gay would help for about 20 to 30 minutes and then the pain would start coming back. I'm actually not sure if the Ben-Gay was helping or if it was just the fact that every time we stopped I got to relax that muscle and that was helping with the pain.

The ride home was for the most part uneventful. We cruised over to Michigan on Hwy 2 and then grabbed Hwy 45 all the way back down to West Bend.
