Our BIG Trip out West travel blog

Boy, do I have alot of catching up to do. Chuck wanted to suprise Mark at work, so we arranged to have lunch at the Hilton in downtown Minneapolis. He was surprised and we had an excellent lunch. Mark and his boss came out to see us and offered to make anything we wanted, on the menu or not. Chuck had a steak and I had sauteed prawns. We also had dessert and that was undescribable. We had a some nice visits with Mark and Am. We went to the Mill Museum that was associated with Betty Crocker. It was very interesting. I spent a good part of a day at the Mall of America and had a wonderful time! 7/22 was a difficult day for us. Our hand me down dog, Nikki, from our daughter Amy got very ill and we made the decision to have her put to sleep. It was a very difficult decision, but she was very ill and the Vet didn't think she would make it through the necessary surgery. That eve. Mark, Am and 2 of their friends came over to the campground for dinner. We had a nice time and it took our minds off Nikki.

7/23/10 we drove from MN to Fort Atkinson, WI for a total of 316 miles. We were making very good time until someone flagged us down and we found out that we had a flat on Betsy Belle. The tire was completely shredded and wrapped around the Axle. Fortunately there was no damage to Betsy Belle. Took 2+ hrs to get help and back on the road. Indeed it was a rough 2 days but we really can't complain because there were no glitches up until then.
