Looking ahead to next month’s Canoecopia, Bill and I have decided to drive to Wisconsin rather than fly this year. Using our trip to New York for the City of Water Day as a model, we realized that we can haul all our own gear (hey! they are Folbots — we can carry them inside the vehicle), see the country and avoid the pleasures of air travel — all while saving thousands of dollars.
Our route will look something like this:
We’ll get to cross the Smokey Mountains, cruise by Asheville, Knoxville, Louisville and a whole bunch of other ‘villes… we’ll add a few miles but bypass Chicago and its potential for bad traffic… we’ll see the seasons change back from spring to winter… and we’ll eat a whole bunch of interesting road food. Each way will be about 1100 miles.
We hope to see you at Canoecopia, but if you can’t make it to Madison give us a wave as we drive on by.
