Join Us for a Mile or a Morning

We keep being asked the logistics of how this works. So here it is...

We drove the route last winter and every 15 miles looked for a place to park the motorhome for a night. Across the state we have farmers, businesses, churches and schools who have welcomed us to stay on their properties. In the morning we take the tow car and drive back 15 miles to the previous nights spot. This is where the run starts. We run to the motorhome, rest, eat and cleanup. Then we go back to the car, hook it up and tow it to the next nights spot and repeat the process.

Our host family last night was the Stafferts, Curt, Betsy, Samatha and Gus.  They are very busy this week.  They operate the Pink Swan ("pinkswanreations"on facebook), a women's boutique and beauty parlour right on their rural property.  So they are not only getting ready for the grand opening on Saturday, but are having Samatha's graduation party the same day.  They still found time to be superb hosts.  Thank you.
 

Day 6 did not start out very well.  It was raining and windy.  Since it was raining when we left for Lamberton, we went on to Tracy to buy a newspaper.  It was a nice article.

Apologies to those that are real time tracking, as the system didn't start properly.  Probably because some unnamed person messed with my watch and phone last night.  The run finally started at 7:40.  Made one wrong turn (not the one pictured below).  Total miles was 15.8.

We also found out last night that we lost our Friday night spot.  We went out this afternoon to get a new one.  It will be a 16+ mile run that day, but we have a spot.  Funny thing was, she was the second person we talked to today who had heard of us.  I guess crazy gets around.
