The Dairy State
There were two things I noticed about Wisconsin soon after I drove about an hour in the state. First, was the smell of cows. One might expect that from a state where a major industry revolves around them. The second thing I noticed was the driving habits of Wisconsin drivers. They get in the left lane and they won't give it up for anything. And they don't care how slow they drive either. I'll probably get some guest book entries refuting this, but it is true and it spills out of the state. On at least four other ocassions, I saw Wisconsin registered vehicles in other states driving the same way. Left lane and five to fifteen miles per hour UNDER the speed limit. Last year it was the motorists in Massachusetts who impressed me as the worst. This year the dubious award goes to Wisconsin. When I lived in Florida, a popular joke was, "When I retire, I'm moving north so I can get in the left lane and drive slow." Too late, Wisconsin holds that title.
Madison is a very beautiful capitol. A lot of art and history is on display there. Come along with me for a tour of Wisconsin.
