Our Spring Tour was appropriately held on the frst weekend in May. The journey started at the Stadt’s hangar, check out the WC web site for pics. Hmmm, wonder how many Bimmers one of these would hold??? The tour covered about 200 miles of great southwestern Wisconsin backroads on the way to Prairie du Chien, or Dog’s Prairie. Our frst stop was a quick visit to New Glarus Brewing, home of Spotted Cow beer. The brewery proudly displays that they only sell in Wisconsin. Odd name but a good beer, well worth a try next time you venture north of the border, the Illinois border that is. Next stop was in Mt. Horeb for lunch. The town has a strange obsession with trolls but the Grumpy Troll restaurant is a recommended stop for a tasty lunch. More backroads after lunch to the evening’s destination in Prairie Du Chien. No clues during this tour to distract from enjoying the scenery. Apparently most everyone didn’t mind, with the exception of my co-pliot. I’m sure her vote is to bring back clues for the Fall Tour, which has found a Tourmeister. A special thanks to Dave and Jan Stadt for hosting two tours in a row!

After lengthy reads the past two months I’ll keep this one short so you can get out and enjoy Spring. Our Spring Tour was appropriately held on the first weekend in May.
