They usually pop at the same time, blackberries come later.I havent seen any mature raspberries yet,so that tells me they both are still coming

Thanks for the reminder Utah.  Another week up here I should find time for blueberries.  Looks like lot of raspberries too in some places.

Surprisingly light tourism on the lake this weekend.  I suppose everyone got their fill of tourist activities week of the 4th. Nice n quiet for a change.

Blue berries in full swing. Checked them last week and decided to wait.Today got 2lb 4 oz for 4/12 hours pick rate 1/2 pound per hour. I thought I was doing pretty good. I got a few hot spots that popped. At this time I usually pick a week apart, because of the amount of immature berries. next couple weeks should be ​really good. Sawyer County

Hopped on Hwy 32 at 6:30 pm Sunday to go to Carter for dinner, nothing! It's 2 miles away and I don't think I passed 4 car's going south. When I still worked, I drove home in the evening to avoid the boat's and campers whom seem to slow traffic down along with the heavy volume. Also it's cooler with the sun should it be a hot day. And usually in the evening you can set the cruise and drive!

We always leave later in the day, even more so on holiday weekends.  It just means you spent more time up north, I don't care if I get home at 9pm.  Let all the other yahoos battle it out in the middle of the day.

It's more of what time you travel. My daughter left Sunday at 1030 and didn't get home till 530. I left 430 home 815. 
We both took the same way back. 70 - 51 - 10- 41.

Esox.   I have.   Hy 10 is slow going but at least you’re moving.  When I lived in Ktown I used that route on occasion so I would recommend it.

I wonder how bad the traffic would be if I took highway 45 south to highway 10 East. That used to be my route before 10 became 4 lanes. Anyone try that route?

Something has to give over the next 20 years or the DOT will need to find a route around the isthmus in Minocqua.  There is a few routes to the west starting around Harshaw and Hazelhurst but theyre curvy and graveled.

Absolutely the busiest 10 days that I’ve ever seen up here!! If I were a tourist, I would be coming this upcoming week. Much less busy. However, I understand the Fourth of July festivities are a lot of fun and there’s tradition involved for a lot of people. But, a lot easier to get around,  more access to quiet moments,  and the ability to not wait in line so long this upcoming week and  beyond.
