Point A: St. Joseph, Mich.
Point B: Hopkins, Minn.
Transport: Elderly Honda Civic.
Purpose: Visiting family, showing Scott the ol’ homestead, eating on the parents’ dime, general relaxing and carousing. Also, repeatedly trying out the Instagram app, to the annoyance of said family.
Chicago, Ill. I fell asleep a half hour out of St. Joseph and woke up in bumper to bumper traffic. I treated it as a prime opportunity for trying out cellphone’s filtering capabilities. Verdict: Filtering capabilities are indeed functional.
Somewhere in Wisconsin. Let this white farmhouse stand in for the hundreds of adorable farms that we passed.
At the Indian motorcycle shop in St. Paul. Taken while Scott was trying to wheedle information out of the owner about any new Indian bikes coming out. The owner was being secretive/actually didn’t know about any new stuff. The mystery remains unsolved.
The movie theater in my lovely hometown. Playing that night were Salmon Fishing in Yemen and 21 Jump Street. What the theater lacks in timeliness it makes up for in being so very cheap – only $2 per movie. And $1 on Tuesdays!
Here’s Minneapolis, shown Monday morning, right before we had to make the decision to head east back to St. Joseph, or strike out west to parts unknown.
We chose east for two reasons. 1. Our jobs, which expected us back, bright-eyed and well-rested, Tuesday morning. 2. The Wisconsin Dells, which sits far southeast of Hopkins and has something called a deer farm. Where you feed special deer crackers to deer. From your hand. Photos to follow!
