Another great weekend in northern Wisconsin. I left Thursday after work for Perch Lake north of Drummond, found a very quiet campground that remained that way for the weekend.
Bike and van loaded, starting for home....at the end of my adventure.
Friday morning in a nicely quiet campground.
I overheard the cook asking one of her regular's if he'd be going to the Blueberry Festival in Ironwood.
It took no time to decide that I WOULD be going to the Blueberry Festival in Ironwood...
My plate was soon clean....this Dutch pancake something new for me from the Delta Diner.
A group of kayakers, I believe a class.
Not sure if this is a farm truck....but it's a farm truck.
Bark Point boat launch...
Almost 2 cups worth in 45 minutes maybe? Don't even ask me where, a Berry Hunter's Secret!!
Soft, glowing grass...
Microwavable mashed and bacon-wrapped pork cutlets. My refrigerator pickles had already been consumed.
Pest control....amazingly effective!
After the smaller people pulled, the bigger people made the effort....with a $$ contribution to the local Lions group. Nothing like having a couple of brother-in-laws in the audience.
....with cheering section!!
You know this was a good Pull!!
Wasn't just BIL's....
If their daughters could do it, so could they.
I wear gear to keep the bears away....there was a lot of scat in the area.
Bet it's been a long time since you've seen Berries In A Bottle!
My first attempt at bannock this camp....a success!
From Mason I rode east, to new territory. I was surprised at how prominent row-crop agriculture was in the area. Huge fields of soybeans and corn, many acres of standing wheat that looked beautiful. I looped up to Ashland for some KT coffee before heading back to camp.
From Ashland, Washburn in the distance across the bay.
Bannock #2, even better than #1 was!
Loaded for home...
I stopped in Cumberland at Louie's for rations...
As James would say, "It was a good camp".
Sounds like a fantastic weekend. And you return with cheese curds!ReplyDelete
Had a really nice time, plenty of quiet woods time, great riding and fun hanging with the blueberry people. I've even got The T-shirt!Delete
It looks like you pan fry the bannock kind of like a thick pancake. I’ve seen recipes for baked and deep fried versions.ReplyDelete
Pan frying is the only way I've done it while camping. If the dough is nice and thick, it comes out much more bread-like. Thinner dough really makes a pancake. I've done the thin versions, last weekend mine looked like the ones I've seen online, nice and thick.Delete
