I'd never been to Wisconsin before.
Michael Angelo Ruffino and I were rowing a gondola
on the St. Croix river - which separates Minnesota and Wisconsin today.
We veered away from the Minnesota shore,
and in short time were making land in the eastern side of the river.
Here you see photographic evidence of my "brief" visit to the land of Cheese.
Left foot: meet Wisconsin. Wisconsin: meet my left foot.
