Crisis! Only one beer left and you can’t buy any in Minnesota on a Sunday. After I secured a campsite I found a bait & tackle/general store in Jacobson. When I saw the padlock on the beer fridge, my first thought was, wow, they must have a shoplifting problem. I went to the counter and asked about buying a six-pack. “Nope,” was the answer and then it dawned on me. Oh well. I’m sipping this last one real slow.
Got rolling early this morning and left the peaceful grassy hill in Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park while the Swiss couple slept. Back on I-94 East. A straight shot into Fargo. Lots of open space and little lakes and swampy areas. I’m no ornithologist, but there seemed to be a lot of low flying ducks working very hard to stay aloft. I had to veer around a turtle that was making its way across the two lanes. I hope he made it. Saw a gray wolf that didn’t make it splayed out on the side of the road. I didn’t know NoDak had wolves but google informed me there was a healthy population (except for that one).
Stopped in Fargo briefly and stretched the legs and then off the interstate and over the border into Minnesota. Lots of trees, lakes, and three-wheeled ATVs. Appears to be the preferred local means of transportation.
Hay Lake State Campground is home for the night. It’s pretty, but mosquitoey. I remember hearing somewhere the mosquito is Minnesota’s state bird.
Tomorrow Wisconsin & Michigan!
