I live about 180 miles south of there, we use U.S. Highway 2 to run across the top of Wisconsin (some great riding), as well as to get to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, or, if a person is doing the circle tour around lake Superior, you might come or go this way.



11 injured- no fatalities that I have heard of.

Lucky there was no one killed, but I pray the injured didn't get badly burned. Joe, I just sent you an email, so please watch for it. Thx.
