    Another alternative to GRABAAWR or SAGBRAW in Wisconsin is the POWWOW Tours. Take a look at
    http://www.wisconsinbicycletours.com/. You stay in college dorms and have two college cafeteria
    meals per day. This years' tour goes through the "Kettle Moraine" area of east central Wisconsin
    between Fond du Lac and Sheboygan.

    Last summer I rode cross-country on the Adventure Cycling Northern Tier Route and a couple of weeks
    after the trip we were riding in the Kettle Moraine area and I commented that we were in some of the
    most beautiful places we had been in all summer. Some of that is love for your homeland. But there
    is lots of diversity in Wisconsin. Varied terrain, landscape textures, varied crops and colors of
    fields, hardwoods and pines, and lots of farms dotting your view. Plus a good network of low
    trafficked roads.

    (For those of you who know a little geology, Kettle Moraine should be translated to kettles and
    moraines. This is an area of interlobate moraines between two lobes, the Lake Michigan and Green Bay
    lobes, of the Wisconsin glaciation. Much of the natural beauty of Wisconsin is because of that
    recent glaciation. Most all of the lakes, marshes and swamps are a result. And the continental
    glaciers are the cyclist's friend. They smooth out the landscape.)

    Dennis and Peggy are very supportive of recumbents. There is a link to WISIL on the webpage.
