I lived in Wisconsin for thirty-five years. The last several years, I lived in my own house in a small rural town. I loved the location but hated the hour commute to my job in winter.
Wisconsin has some great backroads, and I explored a lot of them on the moped. This run-down shed was near the town of Baldwin. You see a lot of places like this there; old people die, and the family doesn’t want the place, so it rots.
If you ever get the chance to visit Hudson, do it. Terrific town on the St. Croix River. Take a left as you cross the bridge into Wisconsin, and there it is, small but vibrant, with lots of bars, restaurants, and cafes. Popular with the tourists year ’round. Lakefront Park offers free concerts in the summer. I lived in North Hudson for five years. I have a lot of wonderful memories of this place.
See you next time.
