I'm in a wifi free zone at Ann's uncled house in North Branch, Minnesota. Not only that, but they don't own a computer. So I drove 10 miles to this McDonalds...

From Uncle Lauren's back porch we have, so far, seen one raccoon, many deer, and ONE BEAR this morning. Seriously, drinking my coffee, looked out, and there was a bear messing with the bird feeders in the backyard. Uncle Lauren's land runs right up to the St. Croix River which is the Minnesota-Wisconsin border and it's a wildlife paradise.

No running today. Three hours of pushing a lawn mower should count for something though.

That must be one heck of a lawn or you have a mower problem. Sounds like a fun trip so far.

It was several acres Fritz, really required a riding mower, but I pushed to get a workout! Pretty good cross training.
