Not sure which way I'll take on the way up. Interstate is convenient, more to see if I take the back roads up from the south. May even find a different way up from the south. Madison would be a little bit out of the way.
That's the way I've taken up the last two years. On the way back each time I've gone southwest from Mauston, gone through Dubuque IA, and stopped in Amana to visit Gorm (about another hour of driving that way).
I think I've decided I'll go diagonally NE as possible from Des Moines. It'll take another hour according to google maps vs taking the interstate the whole way, but I think I've seen about all I can see from the interstate. More or less we'll be crossing the river at Prarie Du Chien. On the way back maybe drop south and follow the Wisconsin River.
I will be getting food lined up, if you are coming and not on the list now is the time.
CORN looks pretty good this year!
