Yes, once again the Hugellandschaft Adventure ride in Northwest Illinois is alive so mark your calendars for the weekend of May 31 – June 2, 2019. This is an ever-evolving labor of love for me so for those who have attended in the past this year’s route will have a different twist on familiar territory plus some all new areas to ride that will encompass three states. I am going back to a two day ride this year so both Saturday and Sunday’s track will cover around 200 miles each. This should allow ample time to check out the waypoints. Lots of sporty pavement, gravel roads, elevation changes, monuments, bison, geological wonders, Wisconsin rustic roads, waterfalls, marine navigation and because of pressure from the last event attendee’s, this year’s theme is water. I have a line on some top-secret private property for Saturday’s off road and water frivolity but hang tight till I work out the details. Sunday will have about three chances to play Captain Nemo on a public road and what would an Adventure be without a boat ride for your motorcycle? That’s right bring some extra cash for a Ferry ride over Big Muddy and let’s all hope the rivers stay within their banks that weekend. You can get more info from the ADV Rider forum here; Starting back at Hanover in the Blanding Landing campground for another go around. Showers, water source, tent sites as well as electrical sites all along the banks of the Mississippi River. Sure, there is a freight train track in the front yard, but I did not think they were near as much of a problem last year as I thought they might. You are responsible for making your own reservations and if you plan on attending, I would not wait till the last minute as the campground is not all that big. Another word of caution, if are driving a large trailer or motorhome DO NOT try to enter from the north on Diggin Hill Road. Great on a motorcycle but not big rig friendly. I will bring the Keurig machine for morning brew and provide a Saturday evening meal back at the campground shelter. • What to bring A motorcycle, camping equipment and a friendly attitude • Important to know Campground has plenty of water sources, electric hookups and a shower house
