Joined by daughter Natalie who will be running some days and biking others.

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.

Today was a very good day at least for me.  The run ended up just under 11 miles.  Evidently there are shorter ways between the way points than the random roads I drove in Decembers.  It was very windy, so Natalie's biking was rather tough when facing the wind.

Found a pink pig!
3 ladies from Pipestone
stopped for a picture.
Stopped for a little while and talked to Leroy Olson.  He is working up his last field for the season.








Another wonderful surprise when we got back to the motorhome.  There was a bag on the steps with meat sticks, prize hot dogs and hamburger.  Another treat from John Bakker before he went into the field for the day.

For those who missed it, here is the link to the KAAL TV story.
