I received an interesting email from Brian, who is one of the volunteers with the American Legion who will be working hard for us at the rally. (Try their burgers... mmmmm)
Also, in reading your forum I see that our Rustic Roads were brought up. As a State Trooper please remind all the max speed limit is 45 (hard at times on motor cycle) and many are at 25 (who can go 25) just for info.
I also saw new motels that you were thinking of adding to your list. Of those listed (a gentleman was looking for “Mom & Pop” type): The Silver Bell in Hartford is good, just repaired from last summer tornado; Bonnie Bell good right on Hwy 45 about 12 miles north of the Fair Grounds; Jackson Motel is more a long term “temp worker” type place not to good for man and his wife; Silver springs motel I wouldn’t recommend, used by WI Probation and Parole for those just released fro prison and reentering the community. Again just more info.
Thanks to Brian with the American Legion for the great information!
