I made my once-in-a-blue-moon trek through Minot (AND Missoula) back in July, so I probably wouldn't do it again so soon. Besides, I think we're heading east to upstate New York next year.

But if you do happen to have a meetup, I would expect to see some photos, so a few of us regulars can put a face with the names of people we chat with on a regular basis.

Well, if I'm up for that long a road trip, we could make it a convoy. Pick up Rocklobster near Ottawa, Chief Longwind of the North in the Upper Peninsula, collect Steve Kroll and Charlie D as we travel through Minnesota. There's probably other people along the way that I have forgotten.

All this talk about a road trip and no mention of what snacks to pack!

It just was not in the stars...If not for the boring nurse's meeting. I'm the one with the glasses...the most recent pic I have.

If you're going to be THAT close, you might as well come up to Ottawa and Montreal!

That's why I made sure there was a kitchen at Dawg's Mom's house...I think we would be bringing only those things to cook that we could not get in Minot or close by. I would be bringing chipotles in adobo, chipotle powder and mangos...

And on the way back home we made very few stops. By that time, we were so ready for vacation to be over and to get back home.

There will be another time, I'm sure. Our daughter competes in a national forensics tournament every spring, and in 2015 it will be held in Portland, OR. So there may be another road trip in the cards.

My profile pic is actually pretty recent, although Mrs. K says I look more gray in person.

Your little friend is a cutie!

We've talked about that, but I think it will be a separate trip. We have friends on the US side in Chicago, Cleveland, and Buffalo that we've been promising to visit.

We are all more gray in person. The cutie is Patron, king of the office and my most favorite pooch. I never liked little dogs until I met him.

Shrek has pics on his camera from our lake visit, but I haven't seen them yet. He's retired, has no sense of urgency

Isn't Missoula a cattle transfer town? Sort of like Vermont used to be? More cows than people.
