Base Camp -- Leaving the relative safety of our temporary home. The plan: Journey into unfamiliar territory. Explore thick, Lush forestry. We venture into Nicolet National forest for a bit of single track mountain bike adventure. The year before we rode this same trail system with a so-called guide. We were lost for over 5 hours. This year we chose to embark on our own. Trusty compass and gps system on hand (how do you think I was able to post this route).

We hit open praireland. Looks like the locals use this spot to hunt deer and feathered creatures.

Here we venture down a feeder trail. We run into this crazy looking old man. He talked about fishing and bears. It's time to turn around and leave this gentleman to his thoughts.

Home at last. It's time to drink a beer(or 2) sit around the fire and reminiscence about how awesome, technical and stunning the trail system is. Thank you for the fantastic adventure. Can't wait to ride it again.
