Yesterday was a pretty great day. We all suited up and headed up to Washburn, WI, the county seat of Bayfield County, a small town on Lake Superior, so Pat and Gwen could get a marriage license. Pat was stressing all night about not having his social security card, which no one has, but the form stated they needed. It was way more casual than you could have imagined. There was a question on the form asking if you are fertile or not. I told the woman that seemed not appropriate, but she said they needed that information if cousins marry. Wow was all I could come up with.

It was a 62 mile ride up to Washburn and we did it under 3 hours, tailwind. Pat pulled the whole way, me most of it too. Bill did the first hour and then I took over. I am feeling a little tweaked from all this activity and wasn’t having the best day. Plus, I’m not big on tailwind riding. Makes my butt hurt, not enough pressure on the pedals.

It’s pretty warm up here right now. By warm, I mean it is already in the 60’s this morning. I think singletrack is the choice today. It is going muggy in the woods. I still am riding a rigid fork, so I’m getting beat up a little here off-road, but it is normally super smooth, so it isn’t that big a deal.

Okay, some pictures from yesterday.

    I rode the trails behind the Namekagon town hall the Friday before the Cheq 40. Fun place to ride and the trail seemed to go on and on. Te Cable area is one of our favorite places too.

    Great to live your late summer vicariously. Thank you, as always! Government rules are really funny sometimes. I had an old friend who even said that getting legally married is inviting the gov into your relationship. I agree…

    The government makes something that was lawful to do, illegal, so they can then tell you that if you pay the government money (which is a bribe), then they will turn their backs and give you a permit that allows you to break the law that they just said was illegal to do.
