Ice Age Trail Map

Ice Age Trail Day 40

I fear these last 10 days of entries will not be that exciting. The walking
is fine but not a whole lot to talk about. I did forget to mention that
yesterday I entered and today I exited the Chequamegon-Nicolet National
Forest, the first and I think only National Forest on the trail. I was
hiking by 6:30 and covered 15 miles through the forest on pretty good
trail. I can't keep describing the forest or the mosquitoes or the
humidity, that must get annoying to read. The walk was good, can't say much
else. From now on you can assume the walking is fine, the forest in kinda
just ok, the mosquitoes are terrible, it's very humid and the trail quality
is either good or bad (I'll comment on that usually).

After the forest/trail I started a 25 mile roadwalk to Cornell. The longest
one left. The IAT route through the proposed trail corridor is actually 41
miles but there's no point in walking that. The 25 mile route is way more
direct and has a state highway with a decent shoulder and a very remote
road for 7 miles where I timed my camp tonight. On my way I got to see corn
for the first time in a week or more. It's now chest to head high,
excitement! I went to the last patch of forest on this quiet gravel road.
Any further and there was only farmland and then the louder state highway
I'd get back on which I didn't want to camp on. Randomly while walking
there was a Bar so I had a couple cold sodas which was nice and then walked
a couple more hours to camp.
