Sauk it 2 Meet

by Mary Lynn Cinealis

   On a wonderful fall morning we gathered in Middleton. The day started out overcast and the majority of drivers decided to drive with tops up. Only 1 or 2 brave souls drove with their tops down. The route that Jim and Karen planned for us meandered thru some great rustic roads that also included some cute little cities like Mt Horeb (which is always a favorite potty stop), Blue Mounds and Mazomanie. Lunch was at the Blue Spoon Cafe in downtown Prairie Du Sac. We had our own room which overlooked the Wisconsin River. We took our time enjoying our food and the conversation with each other. After lunch we did run into a little rain, but it did not dampen our spirits. We continued to enjoy the fall colors and the many animals that we passed along the way. Dinner for us was a favorite spot for the club, Rivers Edge Pub in Lake Delton. When you walk into this place it's like going home since they have welcomed us so many times in the past. We had a few new couples that were introduced to the group and they seemed to enjoy the day of driving and the camaraderie that Badgerland is known for.
  Thanks to Jim and Karen Loeffler for a wonderful last ride of the year.
