Jun 22, 2019 - Lake Superior #2 June 17 - 20, 2019

Apostles Islands National Lakeshore is part of the National Park system. It is one of several national lakeshore parks along Lake Superior. Since the islands are not accessible in an easy way – kayaking, canoeing or private water taxi are required to get to almost all of the islands. we decided to take a cruise to see some of the features. The cruise was about 2.5 hours long and I was not able to stay on the outside upper deck for the whole trip – Tom outlasted me. The day was beautiful but moving through air that is only 60 degrees at a...

Jun 16, 2019 - Lake Superior # 1 June 12-16, 2019

LAKE SUPERIOR – WOW I keep saying we are going to Duluth, MN but the destination is LAKE SUPERIOR. Just a little geography/info. Duluth is a city of 87,000 people that is on the border of Minnesota. Its twin city is Superior, WI with 26,000 people that is on the border of Wisconsin. We are staying in Wisconsin at a nice, locally owned RV park for 9 nights – our longest stay of the trip. This a vacation destination for Mid-westerners. There are lots of trails, marinas, educational attractions and dining/drinking locales. There is a casino...

May 24, 2019 - Duluth

I should have entered the address of the Lakehead Boat Basin into the Phaeton's GPS. It was a bit longer trip than normal for us as we drove northwest on I-94 and then north on U.S. 53. We had some light rain, but encountered more rain and fog as we neared Duluth. Since the GPS didn't know the boat basin, I cleverly entered the Fairfield Inn because it is next door to Lakehead. But when the GPS was heading uphill instead of down toward the water, I asked Sue to find the basin on Google Maps. We followed Google Maps directions through town...

Aug 28, 2018 - Minneapolis, MN to Duluth, MN

August 28, 2018 Martina was very fun with interesting dishes. Bob ordered a Chilean 2014 Sol de Sol chardonnay and Leslie brought a 2005 Achaval Ferrer Finca Mirador Malbec. We were able to catch up with the kids and learned that General Mills moves people into new jobs when they are out on a LOA. Celeste expects to move into procurement which she is looking forward to. We are also looking forward to the Dederer/Kweller get together for Christmas in Denver as we had done for many years in Truckee. Much longer time for Leslie and I to take...

Aug 19, 2018 - “Does this bus go to Du-lut?”

We drove into Duluth, MN on Saturday. Every time I think about Duluth, I’m reminded of a joke we heard when we lived in Minnesota some 35 years ago. It’s a Scandinavian joke ( like Polish, Italian, Irish, etc. jokes in other parts of the country) and many of them involve Sven, Ole, or Lena. Take you pick for this one when they ask the bus driver the question in the title. The punch line is “No, it goes beep-beep.” Lol. No? It loses something when you write it down. It needs to be done with a Norwegian accent and it gets a little funnier,...

Jul 26, 2018 - Day Trip: Duluth, Minnesota

What a day! “John, what do you want to do today? We like Duluth.” He nods his head enthusiastically. I head to the office. We book another night and move the rig. Our first site had a patio and swing. Our current site has a covered picnic table. All we need is electric. We travel to Duluth. Normally, we don’t head into cities. But, we like Duluth. I already said that. We find the parking lot for the Vista Cruise line. There is a tour at 12:30. Perfect. We walk to the Aerial Bridge. We walk across it, take some pictures and walk back. No,...

Aug 15, 2017 - Indian Point RV Park, Duluth, MN

It was an easy 148 mile drive along Hwy 2 through the countryside with great views.We crossed the Mississippi once more on our way east, we also crossed the St. Louis River once just a few miles before coming into Duluth. One town, a ways back was undergoing reconstruction of their Main St., they made a new temporary road for traffic around the town. It was strange. We were anxious to get to our space at the Indian Point RV Park as it is situated along the banks of the St. Louis River which drains from Lake Superior... It is told to us that...

Sep 24, 2016 - Moving Along

Duluth, MN We were sad to pack up and leave our home of the last week. The resort is beautiful and the two brothers really enjoyed fishing. Ron and Mary headed home while Jim and Sandi headed east - sort of. First we were seduced by a sign advertising a craft show and flea market. False advertising! There were only 8 tables with very little to offer. To console ourselves, we went hiking along a boardwalk through a unique conifer bog to check out some of Minnesota’s most unusual plants – insect-eating pitcher plants, sphagnum moss and...

Aug 15, 2016 - Tall Ships/Train & HH Rally

The Haulin' HitchHikers Club have two big Rallys each year. The annual meeting of the Haulin' HitchHikers/HHHH has always been in the Hill Country of Texas in April. The Rally committee decided we also needed to meet in the fall, before everyone heads to their winter homes. This year, the Tall Ships Festival, on Lake Superior, in Duluth Minnesota was the centerpiece of our fall gathering/rally. Thirty-five members/eighteen rigs attended. Burlington Bay Campground in Two Harbors, just north of Duluth, was our home base. Enjoy the pictures!...

2016 RV Adventure

Jul 15, 2016 - Duluth, MN and west

Click on thumbnail images to enlarge So completing my big time detour around flood ravaged northern Wisconsin I arrived in Duluth, MN – the western tip of Lk Superior. Though Sharon & I had been to, by and through Duluth a number of times, we had never stopped. Following advice of my tour director Ron who provided advice on some things to see and a campground to stay at, I registered for a few nights at Indian Point Campground on the Saint Louis Bay of Lake Superior, a few miles south of downtown. Though it is basically across the street...

2016 Summer Trip

Jun 18, 2016 - Glensheen and Grandma's Marathon

We signed up for a tour of Glensheen Mansion which is right on Lake Superior a few miles north of downtown Duluth. We had no small task trying to find a way to get to the mansion since the street in front of it was the main route of the marathon. Zigzagging our way in the direction of the estate, we realized that we had gotten as close as we could. We parked on a residential street and walked about 15 minutes to the mansion arriving just a few minutes before the tour was to start. Whew!!! The mansion was the family home of Chester Congdon...

Jun 17, 2016 - Downtown Duluth

We had a great time today. Duluth is not only a great port on Lake Superior, it has also developed its tourism industry. This weekend thousands are coming for the 40th running of Grandma's Marathon and half-marathon which will be run tomorrow. This is the last big city we will be in for awhile so we took advantage of services and stores available... Penny got a haircut! We bought something to oil the electric stairs, a new battery for Jerry's phone and new windshield wipers for the Honda. Jerry is off doing some shopping for groceries this...
