His avatar says DesMoines so most hills in WI will be 2.5 hours or so not sure what is around Platteville that is close for him or if it's worth it to trek into southern MI not sure of the hills in that state.
Plus he says riding for the hell of it, I wouldn't want to trek 2+ hours for a trip like that.

Sundown in Dubuque was yielded via 5 sec google search and I'm not even close to there hahaaha

There's some ess in southern mn, but nothing impressive. Not much worth multiple hour drives.

Are you down to go to Mount Crescent. I'm going to be visiting someone in Omaha, so I can meet up there if you want?

Never been, but used to live in NE for 28 years...but I'd imagine mt cresent is closest to de moan.

Anyway get the frick out of the Midwest and enjoy a real hill...I will never move back...hell I won't even go back to visit family...thus they must come here if they want to see me. Pics from last year
