MacGreg: A Shakespearean Comedy
Scott and Rocky, the two star-crossed lovers Hath made plans to bestow a visit upon MY Town From whence they shall traverse this kingdom By way of the dangerous land of Wisconsin 'Twas incumbent upon MacGreg To scouteth the territory So as to ensure no harm came to them.
Yet, the kingdom of Wisconsin possessed other obstacles to his entry. The royal guards, much mightier than the trail guards, Lifteth the bridge over the St. Croix River Thereby, Delaying MacGreg's progress But not his resolve.
All the world's a bridge And we are but crossers From one land to the next Signifying nothing.
The steel grate threatens to consume thy soul The railroad bridge loometh as a harbinger of doom The river floweth 'neath. Beware it's watery teeth.
To cross or not to cross That is the question To take up arms against thine enemy Or to suffer the obnoxiousness of Packer fans? Aye, there's the rub. They rub me the wrong way.
Indeed, the heavens have ordained it: The kingdom of Minnesota and the kingdom of Wisconsin Shall never be friends. They'll make jokes about each other into eternity And their football teams will forever be Mortal rivals, enemies. At least God granteth the burg of Prescott Three small distinctions. First, a fine clock tower Second, it's position as the HAMLET just across the border, Third, there is no third.

Well, now. That certainly is intimidating. We may need to revisit the itinerary and look for a way to skirt that big menace. Thanks for the warning!
Chances are slim that the bridge will get you. In the thousands of times I’ve driven and cycled over that bridge, this is only the 2nd time I’ve ever seen it raised.
Go Pack Go-eth.
“You scullion! You rampallian! You fustilarian! I’ll tickle your Viking catastrophe!”
You gorebellied, plume plucked flap-dragon. May the knotty-pated Packers be cursed to neverending puking.
Hey buddy, it looks like you had a fun bike trip. Enjoyed the pics, especially the ones of the ocean and beaches. Did you decide if you’re going to write it up in more detail at some point?
Was thinking I might slack off this time, then again I think someone (yourself) might do me the honour of reading my rubbish. So stay posted. Probably do it on crazyguy as I’ve already started it there..
Looks scary but not as scary as all the homeless camps on every main long bicycle paths in Portland. I think I’ll take my chances.
