It’s Crowd-Sourced Time!

Players, we all should be thankful this week is a crowd-sourced show. We’re going to need it. 

Typically when Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick or Wisconsin’s Hardest I go on an adventure to say, Texas, or New Orleans, or Kenosha we use the inspiration/desolation we find in these places to write a couple categories. Like a real low-key “yeah, I’m a traveller” boast. I’m sure, in time Anjali is going to get in on this, but since she’s been on the team the extent of her travelling has been to Waukesha. And we don’t do Waukesha categories. 

All that said, I spent the last 4 days in Northern Wisconsin riding mountain bikes. Are the CAMBA trails extensive and impressive? Very much so. 

Did I, against the orders of my doctors and everyone who cares about me, jump the bike? Of course. 

Did Keith call me out for it and threaten to take away my bike? Yes

But did I find any inspiration for trivia? No. None at all. Imagine the Birkebeiner Zone category: Question #1: You guys remember like 120 years ago when humans cut down every damn tree in this zone and then planted these scrubby pines and some oaks that other trees laugh at and say, “You’ll never be old growth. Go back to tree school.”?

That one is clearly a yes or no answer, but neither is wrong based on your level of Northern Wisconsin industrial history. 

Question #5 would just be, What was the biggest boat I saw last weekend? I love a good seafaring subject, so this question isn’t even out of line.  And you’re all gonna be clowning on Spoony Bards when they write “Is bass a kind of boat?” But they are going to be correct. Wrap your brains around that one–THE QUESTION IS JUST A QUESTION, BUT THE ANSWER IS ALSO A QUESTION.

That is just not the kind of hassle any of us need this week. So please submit a round of questions to either nick@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com or greg@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com.
