Labor day weekend holds a special place in our hearts because it is our anniversary. We usually celebrate by taking a long weekend motorcycle trip, and this year was no exception. This year we decided to return to the Driftless Area and ride a couple of our favorite routes; the Arcadia Route and the Buena Vista Route.
The roads and the scenery were incredible. We are always amazed at the variety of wildlife and changing geography we see in a relatively small area. We had an amazing weekend!
Nat P. was the winner of the August Driftless Challenge. Congratulations Nat! With the end of the August Challenge comes the start of the September Driftless Challenge. There are only 2 more Driftless Challenges left in 2019 (Sept. and Oct.), so don’t delay, and remember that the winners from each month are entered into the grand prize drawing at the end of October.
