Day 30, Antigo, 9 miles
I get up early and pack up my condensation heavy tent. It’s a quick roadwalk to the town of Antigo and I make it in time for breakfast.
I’m pretty hungry so order a whole bunch of stuff. Twenty dollars worth! Yowza! The extra American fries I order in the end put me over the top and I carry them out for lunch.
Then it’s off to the campground in town which costs only ten dollars. There are warm showers, wifi, and fire wood. I pick one of the empty sites, put my money in the envelope and call the town to say I picked a site. They are super nice and give me the code to the showers and wifi.
I set up, take my shower and lounge in my tent the rest of the day catching up on uploading my blog and watching American Idol on my phone. I leave the fire wood for the other campers.
In the afternoon it gets noisy with drag racers at the fairgrounds but I don’t mind. I just hope they stop when I want to go to sleep.
Three ladies stop by telling me they had reserved the site next to me but won’t show up. They are camped at a different campground at the Dells of Eau Clair but are still coming here for the showers.
We get to chatting and they are section hiking the Ice Age Trail.
I basically lounge around all afternoon. It’s perfect.
On my way to the bathroom in the evening I chat with another lady who is section hiking the IAT. So fun!
Luckily the drag racing stops and I have a great night sleep.
