Is it still Memorial Day? It must be, I have been passing cars coming the other way sporting signage about the Bolder Boulder all day. At my gas stop back in Sterling, there were people changing from their running togs into more road-appropriate attire.
It is axiomatic that here, in Minnesota, there are two seasons: Winter and Road Construction. I am only an hour-or-so from my starting point and am already losing time due to the fact that the route my GPS is following is under construction.
I am up early this morning in preparation for the drive home. Well, it is early by the standards of the laid-back lifestyle of what my cousin’s kids call “The Park.” I can see why. My folks’ house is so peaceful! It was well before five when I got up to shower and get ready for the drive.

I was awakened early this morning as the worst of the front-borne storm came through here. There must have been a thunderclap, though I do not remember it. There was nobody stirring as I got up to see what had awakened me. The house, except for the sound of the falling rain, was silent.

To say that I am excited about my vacation may be a bit of an understatement; in much the same way that saying Pikes Peak is a bit of a hill. I started preparations for this trip three days ago when I started compiling a packing list and thoroughly cleaning the car.
