Upper Midwest Gathering 2000
The Rural Cruise on Sunday

The cheapest and most entertaining event of the whole weekend was the Rural Cruise.  I plotted out a course west of the Dells.  The course had plenty of twisty roads and we took some very scenic pics along the way.  Wow, what a blast!

John and I climbed up a hill to get a better angle. It kind of looks like I'm kicking him in the nads. This is the spot where we climbed the hill.   This pic is from the road. Thats me staring at the line of cars.  It goes: Curt, John, Dan, Mike, Scott, Vineet, Mark, Oskar, Derek H, Shawn, Derek G How about that angle??
