I followed the Hiawatha Tour bike route shown on my maps. It took me down highways that had low traffic and good shoulders. There was only one hill; otherwise flat farmland and pine forests with a ferny understory.
I stopped for lunch in Rudyard and talked with the diner's owner. He gave me a bumper sticker that says I ate there.
I passed a bunch of campgrounds too early in the afternoon... I was bound for one in the Lake Superior State Forest. It has no shower but does have a water pump, so I was able to wash. The wildlife around the lake is very vocal! The crowd of mosquitos hovering above my tent was so loud it almost kept me awake.
