You Scored as Traveler
You are a Traveler Empath, you come from a time & place far removed from here. You are an innocent, in search of your own kin and have a difficult time understanding this world. You are lost & only want to find your way back home. You bring unique gifts to this world and share them with a loving heart. Although very misunderstood, you are also very forgiving. (from the "Book of Storms" by Jad Alexander at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Empaths/)
It was interesting to hear from someone I may have passed by in the not-too-distant past. I had a strong empathic feelings for the travelers who came before me in Portage! When son,Jade and I came through town, we were exhausted. That was the day after the flooding rains that happened two summers ago down around the Lower Wisconsin and Mississippi confluence. The night before we got to Portage, we had a very stressful night. I had gotten up a dozen times through the night to watch the storm, barely visible on the horizon to the Southwest. The oddest thing was that for a thunderhead to just sit still like that is extremely rare. We were on the first broad flat bend below the Dells, perhaps ten miles away from town by road. Jade had forgotten to load his sleeping bag into the canoe at the portage around the dam at the Dells, so we started the day by hitchhiking back to town to look for it. After not finding it, hitching back to where the canoe had been stashed, and paddling all day long, we arrived wrung out and ready for rest.
We had set for ourselves a very demanding pace, paddling from Castle Rock Lake to Wyalusing State Park in just two weeks, so we had to move on the next morning. It was brutal at times, but the trip was more than worth it!. When we got to Wyalusing, there was a plaque telling how Marquette and Joliet made about the same time as us on their trip down from Portage! it was interesting to have traversed the same route in approximately the same amount of time.
Some day, I would like to recreate the trip down from Portage to Green Bay. I believe that for my own sensibility, I need to experience the river to better place myself in context with the watershed. I have already canoed much of the Wolf river and the pool lakes west of Oshkosh, but the Fox remains a series of images in maps and snippets of crossings that I have made over bridges.
I have been through your area several times, but my senses tell me that I have much more to see there.
