We woke up to thick fog, so we spent the morning doing odd jobs around the motorhome. I sorted some of the bins overhead and rearranged some gear. Steve fixed the rattling of the bracket on the large powered front windshield shade. It shook loose over the last seven years since we installed it. It works well as a sun visor when driving, and can be adjusted to multiple positions, or retracted all the way or lowered down as a night time shade. It's from MCD Innovations.
We got on the road about noon and headed out on hwy 64 West until reaching 53 North. We took that north about 2 hours to Superior WI. Some construction along the way, but most of it was completed on our side so we had a smooth ride, just alongside miles and miles of orange barrels. Each one threatened to jump out at us. I am pleased to say we didn't hit a single one or cause any orange barrel fatalities.
We crossed into Minnesota over the high bridge, and took the first exit in Duluth up up up Mesaba St to climb "The Bluffs" to get up and over the high ridge that encompasses Duluth.
Aunt Nancy came out to greet us and we had hugs all around. Such a sunshiny positive person and just like all of my Grandma's relatives on my mom's side. She had alerted the troops that we were coming and soon family members from all over the area were dropping in. We reconnected with many we had known over the years and from facebook. Pizzas were ordered and adult beverages were consume and laughter ensued well into the night.
We enjoyed a German kuchen breakfast pastry.... oh yummmmm
it's been ages since I have had this treat.
