Man, GOAT DAYS was fantastic... somehow the 30,000 people turned out to be more like 300... the goat chariot races pulling kids were a debacle, only one place served goat bbq, and we screwed up and turned down some free bbq from one of the groups competing in the goat bbq cook-off. Not enough goats, either. But what a blast- country families hanging out, talking goat. Drinking real lemonade. eating some pork cracklins. watching tractors pull tractors real, real slow.

plus the drive up Thomas has some great scenery, mostly low-down bars- including Harpo's and a Green Bay Packers bar in Packers colors- 28 and up only!
