We have the flannel shirts, sweaters, jackets and socks out again.
Meet our new best friend - Samantha. the Nuvi GPS. She's a great addition to my navigating tools. But what I really want you to notice is the number of lakes up here! More than 11,800 of them... Look at all the blue on the screen & that's only showing a small area.
Recognize this picture??? It is the Quintessential travel icon, on the cover of my Great American Road Trip book, the mascot of the American Road, on the National Register of Historic Places, 72 years old. I am so happy to have finally made it here! Bemidji, MN where the Mississippi River begins its long, long course dividing the US into east and west.

We biked 36 miles today, working off some of the calories of all the cook-outs and beers and margaritas over the last several days.
Gregg's brother Gary & sister-in-law Judy joined us up here for some time with their twin sons and kids, cousins and an aunt. We've been in Crosslake and near Longville at Woman Lake.
Here's a bunch of random pictures of the family & the lakefronts, our pontoon tour, a Little League game...everything it takes for a great place to visit.
