Land ‘O 10,000 Lakes

Ah, back home by the Sea again. The COOL breeze intermixed with precipitation and a 30 degree temperature drop not to mention the lack of any humidity or pesky Mosquito’s…

So why all of the memory lane scribblings last week? As you were finishing reading those “Day Tripin’” stories. I was somewhere in the heartland on my third “Coast to Coast” journey.

And everyone always asks me what race are you going to? Since my travels usually incorporate some sort of major automobile race. Yet this time I was simply taking the opportunity to ride with family aboard a 24’ Shasta RV, circa 1984 headed for the white four door Buick capital of the 50 states. None other than Minnesota.

“Team Shasta” took the scenic route east, mosey’ in thru Montana in three days prior to a detour to Langdon, North Dakota before reaching Minnesota…

And the highlight of the trip for me by far, was getting to ride aboard a Dodge Viper roadster! Which was utterly fantastic. Now I need to unpack and watch 8hrs ‘O video tape of the previous F1 qualifying & race + Champ Car race before checking the internets for the latest motorsports happenings…

More later…
