Washburn (11 September 1969)

David Austin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Merle Austin, and Dale Reinart, son of mr. and Mrs. John Reinart, enjoyed a trip over the weekend riding on their motorcycles. They left home about 9 a.m. Saturday and arrived at the hoe of Dale’s aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Don Feuerhelm, in Hokah, Minn., at 11:30. Saturday afternoon they rode to Winona, Minn., and to Alma, where they visited the locks. These locks are 600 feet long. The boys watched a barge go through the locks which was so long it had to be taken in two pieces and pulled through by cables. They then rode along the Mississippi, crossed at Nelson, rode back to La Crosse and then to Hokah, Minn., where they had supper and spent the night with the Feuerhelms. After attending church on Sunday morning they rode to Lansing, Ia., where they crossed the bridge into Wisconsin. They rode along the Mississippi to Prairie du Chien and then to Tomah, where they had dinner at Joe Reinarts and also visited the William and George Reinart families. From there they rode to Babcock, Nekoosa and Port Edwards and on to Wisconsin Rapids. (A line or two were missing here).
