What time is the planned departure time from the Belvidere Oasis since I'm 8 minutes away? We could just have a giant sleepover at my house. I'm sure my wife would LOVE that :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Route specifics will be posted at a date closer to departure. I think on previous tours we got on the road around 9AM?

I also didn't know this. When loaded on mobile, it just takes me to Maps and doesn't have the "route" that is there. On PC, it works as it should. Stupid phones
Good feedback. We do need a way to put the route on phones for turn by turn directions.

really fucking cool route. wish i could make it.
I've wanted to check out the great river route for a while. Figured it would be good for a TCG Tour. This route is a incorporation of the Great River Route and TCG's love for the Great Lakes and loops.

Loads fine on my phone. Need to give it a second to zoom out.

the road north of lacrosse on the MN side is fucking sweet. big sweeping turns mainly 2 lanes in each direction

the wisco portion south of lacrosse won't allow for much passing as it's really tight and narrow through there and just one lane in each direction.

i should add, both parts are crazy beautiful though. a lot of little small towns on the wisco side you'll go through. :bigthumb:

Rolling up on a slow moving vehicle is shitty for sure But TCG made it work on previous tours. You either...

Past 5 cars at once at 100+
The slow moving car pulls over scared after 3 loud cars past it.
Next thing you know the Pontiac Sunfire you are trying to pass is wide open throttle while you are in 6th at half throttle inching away.

I need this road in my life
View attachment 85524
But do you now? That road looks to be in shitty condition as well as not wide enough to even pass or drive aggressively. Everyone claims to love corners but when you actually drive roads with corner after corner it gets old really fast in my opinion. Especially with other traffic.

You forgot "Pass slow moving gravel truck and throw an entire bridge worth of asphalt at your tour pals totalling two cars"
