So for the heck of it I sent in my list of 25+ roads I have traveled to the State of Wisconsin to see how long it would take to get a certificate. Well I sent the email out on February 13th and just received it today. Nothing like an 11 day turn around for this. They sent patch too

Damn, that was super fast I think a few years ago when I applied for the patch it took months, it is hard to remember that far back.

Did u guys snail mail them in or email? I emailed mine in last summer and still have not seen my patch. I just emailed the lady last week and still have not heard from her. Glad you guys got yours so fast.

This is exactly what I did. I also listed out 25 of them too individually in the email then a link to my smugmug album.

I have an extra patch now if you would like it :)

I received my patch yesterday! They appoligized for the delay and said they never received my initial email. Thanks for the responses. Now for these warmer days so we can get rid of this snow. Felt good this morning for once.

Yup - fer sure. I just need to get out and get RR 114 and I will have the whole lot.

I'll likely make that a fairly top priority once things have thawed out.

I will be in for some RR chasing too. That KC trip gave me the itch to get more distance riding in.

The RR program is a great thing to base weekend camping rides around.

I'll probably get 111 & 114 on my way up to CADVR. May stop and see if some of the ones that I passed before have signs now.

Congrats! I hate that feeling of not knowing. Also, I hate this feeling of not being able to ride and we got another 2-3 inches of that fluffly white stuff today.

If this white precipitation keeps up I'll have to have the patches revised with a snowmobile.

In other news, Cannonshot noted that the Rustic Road guide can be downloaded:

A few years back, a buddy and I got all the RR's (at the time) in a summer. I think I put on over 5000 miles in the State to do this. It was a blast. We started in the spring doing 10 on a 32 degree day raining up the side of Lake Michigan and into Door County. Wife did some with me also. This is just plain a cool thing.
