Hi, I'm Karen and I live in Illinois. I've been doing some of the local MTB races (WORS & WEMS) . I am really looking forward to doing some bikepacking this year. Thanks for getting this site up and going Scott, lots of good information.
Where are you located at in WI? Have you looked into the trails around Hayward, and Cable areas? There is some great riding up that way along with places to camp. You can order maps from CAMBA. I'm planning on going up there for a few days of bikpacking this spring.
