This past weekend Ray and I competed at Colorama, which was held on the grounds of The Wade House, a Wisconsin Historical Society site.  The camp was in “the back 40” portion of the grounds, on some of the fields in which they do a Civil War re-enactment each year.  The trails were a lot of hills, prairie, rocks, bogs, and mud.  There was a small section of mud which wasn’t very wide, but the mud was up to Lil Kay’s hocks.  The trails are part of the Northern Kettle Moraine State Park.  Most of the trails were wide enough for carts to pass each other.

There were storms in the area Thursday and Friday, so there were lots of trees down across the trail.  The WI DNR cleared some trees, but Tim stopped and cleaned up many of them on Friday during his drive.    Ride management gave him extra time to do this, and appreciated his help.  By Saturday, all the trees were cleared, except for one which had blown down Friday night.  This presented a challenge, but those of us in two wheel carts made it through.  Tim was certain he could have made it, but he stopped again and cleared some of the branches.
