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??
