Jul 25, 2010 - Hinckley, MN

Our decision to leave Aitkin, MN early ended up being a good one as we are now at a very nice resort with great amenities and the best internet connection so far this summer. It was easy spending nine days here!!! Oh, and the dinner specials at the casino were great as well. Bill even tried a round of golf --- a 1st since his back surgery

Going Down MC's-LANE

Jul 7, 2010 - Hinckley, Minnestota

We left Rapid City on July 5th & drove up to the town of Pipestone, Minnesota for a one night stay. Our trip up I-90 was uneventful until we got east of Mitchell, South Dakota where we hit heavy rains. It came down so hard it was difficult to see the roadway, but the down pours were brief, thank goodness. We saw a corvette (that was heading west) lose control & it spun out into the center medium. That was scarey to watch. Monday night we spent in the town of Pipestone (at the Pipestone RV Campground). We got into the campground at the right...

Oct 19, 2009 - Minnesota - Land of 10,000.....Bad Roads

The weather started out to be so warm this morning we actually thought about going golfing as the course at the casino was open. But then the wind started blowing so hard we had to bring in the canopy so there went that idea. I got a call from my scheduler at one of the companies and she asked if we would mind driving back to Carlton and audit the Black Bear Casino where we had just been on Sunday. With the weather being not so great, we decided to go. Can always use $75 + free buffet lunch! So drove the 75 miles up there, had a great...

Following The Sun

Oct 4, 2009 - Family,Friends,&yearly business

Back to our wonderful rv spot in Hinckley at Dave's sister, Joyce & Virg's place. They have a fantastic place at the end of a road with a great yard(?) that gets bigger and better every time we see it and also have great apples and a big garden full of goodies. Dave barbqued steaks for all of us to celebrate my birthday and they were yummy. Now we have lots of business and visiting to take care of before we head south(we have to get south so Dave can fly back for deer hunting in MN.) Dave got to meet his great granddaughter for the first...

year5-Here we go

Jul 26, 2009 - On the way back to Minneapolis/St Paul

The two weeks we were in Duluth really flew by….. The first day after my sister arrived from California we spent shopping at the mall for cameras; not for me but for each of my sisters….. Jan had just ruined hers when she spilled a glass of something in her purse where she kept her camera and Miriam never did have a digital one so it was fun helping them pick out new ones… They weren’t looking for anything as big as the one I carry around but just a small purse size. They both wound up with Kodak Easy Shares that will be ideal for them…....

Jul 20, 2009 - Out of the Upper Peninsula - Heading for Winnebago Land...

Cedar, Wisconsin to Hinckley, Minnesota The quickest way out of the Upper Peninsula is to Duluth and then south to Minneapolis. During the drive we realized there is so much more to Lake Superior than what we have seen. The Circle Tour which goes around the entire lake, some 1300 miles, up through Canada and back... Given more time, we would have liked to travel up to Thunder Bay in Canada, but the rapidly approaching wedding and even before that, the Winnebago Grand Rally in Iowa prevent us from following our noses up into Canada again....

Oct 8, 2008 - Busy time in Minnesota

It sure has been busy,trying to get around to see everyone, and so many new things. My Sister, Debbie and her husband Dennis bought a new home this last year and so we went to see that and enjoyed a great day of visiting and eating(of course, in Minnesota you have to eat wherever you go- I think its a scandinavian thing) They sure got a nice place with a corner lot. We also got over to visit granddaughter Heather & Zac's new place and that is a cute townhouse. Dave has been having a good time sharing some of his wild caught(he caught it)...

Apr 6, 2008 - Back to Minnesota

Ok. last day on the road, sunshine this am and so we were up early and on the road, almost made it to Hinckley in time for church but not quite- sure miss the Little Rock Church group this am. Got to Hinckley just in time to join the First Lutheran group at Tobies for after church brunch. Those of you who have been in Minnesota KNOW that Tobies is famous for its Cinnamon/Carmel rolls It's a really nice place that has been here since before the freeway and still caters to travelers between the Twin Cities and Duluth. Parked our big rig in...

Jul 28, 2007 - Worth the Sacrifice

Still from Grand Casino RV Resort in Hinckley, Minnesota, 80 miles north of Minneapolis. We got out of bed earlier than normal today, but we did so with a purpose. Early in the week while at the local grocery, we had picked-up a flyer for an auction to sell the remaining personal property of Mr. Louis Kuchenmeister. Whether we intended to buy anything or not, we have always enjoyed going to auctions just to spectate as buyers, potential buyers, & other spectators like ourselves mix & mingle. Today's sale was to begin at 9:30 AM. Allowing...

Jul 27, 2007 - North West Company Fur Post

Still from Grand Casino RV Resort in Hinckley, Minnesota, 80 miles north of Minneapolis. Long term, long term, long term........you remember that chant, right?? From that entry that I wrote a couple of weeks ago about our investment strategy.....the one that said that our investment strategy is to be fully invested in equity (stock) mutual funds. And I presume that you have seen what the stock market has done this week.......TANKED....GONE DEEP SIX......HAD A MAJOR CORRECTION. Yes, long term, long term, long term. But even with the very...
