From near Baldwin, Wisconsin
Monday night - Redeye from SFO to Minneapolis-St.Paul via Atlanta.
Tuesday - finished assemblng new folding bicycle in Minneapolis-St. Paul airport
Spent whole rest of day trying to get out of Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul thicket of suburbs and exurbs.
Wednesday - discovered that the Mississippi is NOT the Wisconsin state line. Twenty more miles to St. Croix River which IS the state line. I was roughly and unambiguously apprised that my vision of Wisconsin as flat cornfields was flat wrong. It is rolling, partly wooded country which is tiring and slow to bicycle through. I got about half as far as I expected today. I expect no better tomorrow.
My stamina and muscle tone are both poor but greatly improved from a month ago and already improving on this trip.
