Tonight we are staying with Shelly Ceglar's mother, Jean Bakka.

Minor change of plans again.  Tomorrow will be a short day--riding 37 miles from the headwaters to Bemidji.  I have "work" things to do (I know it is supposed to be a vacation but some things I could not delegate) and need the time.  Also, Cathy and I will probably do about 12 miles in Itasca State Park.

I exchanged emails today with Bob Robinson, the author of the book I mentioned in my first posting.  He advised me of some route changes and gave me a couple of other tips.

Thunderstorms forecasted for tonight and late tomorrow afternoon.  Chance of precipitation is about 25% most of the day so I may get damp.

Below is the view from Jean Bakka's yard.  Most call it a pond.  Cathy, from the time she was very young growing up here calls it Bakka Lake.

Somehow, the only picture I got of the family has everyone but Jean.  Her sister Donna has her back to us.  Nancy, her daughter, and Nancy's son Garrett are having a conversation about the meat being grilled.  Shelly is hiding behind my wife.
I swear this guy said you are going to do what??
