14 May 2009, Wausau WI
I repacked all my wet clothes that had dried, loaded my bike, filled up with gas and left Wausau. I rode up I39/Hwy 51 to Hwy 8 east to Pembine and then north to Hwy 2 to Mackinaw City, Michigan. The Mackinaw Bridge is having some bridge repair work done on it. They're repairing the two southbound lanes, so getting across the bridge was slow. The southbound lane I rode in had the steel grating and my red beauty wobbled and snaked across it. I white-knuckled it all the way across the grating. After getting across the bridge I found the KOA Campground and camped there for the night. It was great to sleep in my tent again. The owner came over to help me set up my tent and told me his hunting dog was ill with mental issues and had to be put down. So he was a little unhappy.
