We are camped on this 200 square mile lake in Minn. We have been here for a week and have not run out of things to do. There is a major casio not far from here.

St Croix

After riding along the Wild River we crossed over into Wisconsin to St Croix. A very nice little town that we had remembered we had been too years ago. This river was also very high.

Wild River

Yesterday we left for a drive along the Wild River in MN. As we passed the small wide place in the road of Sunrise MN we saw a sign that led us in town.

To our surprise this was the birthplace of movie star Richard Widmark.

Des Moines Zoo

As we are "Friends of the ZOO" we try to see all zoo's along the way. This one in Des Moines is small, but has a lot of good shows.

Just did some research and counted places we have camped since we started fulltiming in 2000.

So far, we have camped at 501 campgrounds. Thats a lot of unhooking and hooking up.

Sorry to leave Des Moines as we did not get to see all we wanted to because of the flooding, but suspect we will back through here in the future.

We are leaving in the morning for Pine City, MN

Des Moines 08 Floods

We intended to spend a week in Des Moines seeing the sites. Because of the flooding we have not seen much except flooding. These pictures were taken along I35/I80. As you can see the water is almost up to the interstate.

We are leaving Monday and hope we can still get through.

In Kirksville Missouri the first college of Osteopathy was established. It is still there today although much larger.
