Wednesday route, day 4

A brand new town, Thornton. And Cartersville, I remember leaving that “town” right after naked santa did the rope swing into the water from that tower. That was right before the highway patrol showd up. https://ragbrai.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/WednesdayDay4July262017.png

I remember being at Mr. Porkchop right down the road about 20 minutes after leaving Cartersville and hearing that the Authorities showed up. Funny as hell.

This comment could go anywhere, I suppose, but rather than start a new thread for today’s route map which I have no specific comments about, I have just noticed that on the daily maps the final red dot is shown in Wisconsin! Even in this image from the main web page slide show the final dot is arguably on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi:

So, I am wondering if the dip site will be on the island just across the border in Wisconsin that can be reached by the highway 82 bridge and which the Army Corps of Engineers so poetically named “Island #146”? Perhaps there will be a comment about this in two days….

Looks to me like they ran out of space because the last days are so short. I see the finish arrow pointing to Lansing. I vote for Wisconsin!!

I doubt they would end in Wisco, considering that bridge is a metal grate bridge.
It’s a long way to look down to the river..
