Are any of you cycle riders interested in getting together this weekend for a ride?

We could plan a caching trip, or just a ride around town.

Either Saturday or Sunday, weather permitting.

I would be in if we would go Sunday... I'm not sure yet if I'll be available Saturday. Caching would be nice, but we should try to pick caches that aren't too hard and have decent parking areas (don't want to get the bike dirty by driving on a muddy road). State fee areas would be OK, but I (and others that go) would probably have to pay the daily rate. I'll let you be in charge of planning the route and caches we hit if we do go Brian... try to keep it under 300 or 400 miles.

Also, if we can't round up enough people for this weekend, I would be game for going another weekend this fall.

I might be able to ride any of the days. I do have one limiting problem because Pat is still recuperating from her surgery. Let me know the plans. I should be able to do some riding and caching.

Does anyone have any caches they would like to hit?

preferably some that are secluded and don't require park admission fees. It may look suspicious if a pack of motorcycles arrives at a park, the riders dismount and walk into the woods Image

A ride through the rolling Kettle Moraine sounds appealing to me.

I've been trying to get up to the CATO CAR Crash. I've cleaned up most things in the northern kettle moraine but wouldn't mind hitting some over again. Also, wouldn't mind passing by Lizard Mounds if anyone wants to pick those two up. I promise to keep my hints to myself. Image

Good plan Steve. Cato Car Crash cache would make a good final destination... I've already found it, but I wouldn't mind going again.

I've also hit most of the northern Kettle Moraine caches, but it's still a great area to drive through.

Other caches we could hit on the way:
- Lizard Breath (GC8185)
- Rebecca's Cache (GC817D)
- Glacial Blue Cache (GC4818) (I've found this one)
- Waubedonia Park Adventure (GC8346)
- Calumet Cache (GC52F0)
- any of the caches in Manitowoc
- and some Lil Otter virtual caches (these are everywhere!)

Personally, I would rather only make a few stops for geocaches, instead of stopping every 10 miles.

I figure it would be about 200-250 miles round trip to Cato and back... the distance would depend on how many back roads we took. (The more the better, especially since the interstates will be nuts because of the holiday.) Is this distance OK with you Brian? And since you'll be the ride captain on this trip, I'll let you plan out the route and the caches we'll hit.

Next question is, where and when do we want to meet on Sunday? (Or Saturday, since my plans to visit my sister fell through...)

These are some great ideas for caches. I've always wanted to hit Cato Car Crash. Sunday would be a better day for me if we want to head that far out. I have to work 12 hrs tonight (until 3AM). So I will probably be sleeping in until 11:00 AM Saturday. We would need to get an earlier start to head up to Manitowoc.

It would be nice to hit a cache half way there so we can get off and stretch. I'm riding a 400cc Honda and it's not Interstate cruiser Image. I will have to top off the tank about every 75 miles. Hence, we shouldn't be too far in the boonies. We could also stop for lunch or dinner since were looking at a 6hr + trip.

Lots of possible routes. If we really want scenic, we could ride out to Waukesha. Shoot "J" up to 60. Hop on 45 to Kewaskum. Take 28 through the Kettle moraine N/E to Sheboygan area, then head up towards Manitowoc. Perhaps a more direct route on the way home.

I've already found Glacial Blue also. I would like to hit Lizard Breath, but since Steve placed it and Jeremy found it, we can pass that one.

Would Sunday morning be ok with everyone?
That will also give us some more time to plan the caches and route. If not, I could do Saturday after 12P

Yes, Sunday morning works fine for me. It sounds like you have a pretty good route planned out. I wouldn't mind jumping on some county roads, especially through the Kettle Moraine.

I haven't found 'Lizard Breath' yet. Plus Steve has his member's only 'Rebecca's Cache' in the same park.

Only 75 miles? You could always bring a rubber hose and siphon some gas out of my 5 gallon tank. Or just bring a rope and tow your cycle behind Steve's GoldWing.

At freeway speeds I'm pushing 7500 RPM. I can go about 75-80 miles before I need to turn the cock to reserve. I have't found out how far I can go on "Reserve", and I dont plan to Image I think the siphon hose and tow rope would be a good idea.

Lets plan on Lizard breath and Rebecca's cache then. I thought you found them already J.

It would have been fun to have you. I know this was pretty short notice. If there is enough interest, perhaps we can plan an additional ride in a couple weeks.

Well, we had beautiful weather and a beautiful ride. We met at 9:00 AM and headed towards Manitowoc. We rounded off the day with 8 caches. We drove approximately 240 miles round trip and got back around 8PM.

Here are the caches we hit:

  • Rebecca's Cache
  • Lizard Breath
  • Silver Creek Music Cache
  • Country corner
  • Cato Car Crash
  • Abe and his animals
  • Stair-master 2002
  • Waubedonia Park Adventure.


Here is a photo we took while at Cato Car Crash. Pictured are Jeremy (left), Brian (center), and Steve (right).

Thanks for coming along guys, I had a great time.

If anyone is interested in planning another ride in a couple weeks, let me know.

Hmmm. You know, I never did let my cycle classification on my driver's license expire after the accident. Seeing how much fun you guys just had, maybe I should start looking for a bike again...

Gee, Thanks guys. After spending a 'second honeymoon' in the hospital together a few years ago after a biking accident, Alan and I agreed no more motorcycles in our future, well at least until the kids were grown. Looks like you have him re-evaluating that decision. Well, OK, I admit it, it sure sounds like a lot of fun to me, too. Wonder if I can carry my hiking staff on a motorcycle....

I'm sure you must have read my motorcycling page on my website so I won't go into my history. What I didn't put in there is that several years ago I lost the engine on an airplane I was flying and just about killed myself. After a bit of a rehab, my orthopaedist asks me if I'm going to start flying again. I told him that I was going to do something safer, buy another motorcycle.
