Going to Cable
Cable was about an hour northwest of my hometown in Bayfield County, and the start of the Birkebeiner cross country skiing race. We must have taken highway 13 north to 77 and gone west. I have never returned, but years later I would take 77 east when I went to Ironwood, Michigan for basement punk shows at the Rat Cellar. The route wound its way through the Chequamegon National Forest past the small town of Glidden and other unincorporated towns, the blink and you'll miss 'em type, that dot the American landscape.
