Monday afternoon, Jim & Chris Guld hold one of their 8 computer related seminars, this one titled “Every RVer needs a Blog.” This couple is amazing. They live in their coach full time & go around the country giving seminars & addressing RVer’s computer needs. Tuesday morning I turned on the computer & following their instructions, this blog was up & running in about 10 minute’s time. I had previously written a little of what we had done, so it was simply a matter of editing the writing for a blog, then incorporating a few pictures. The most challenging part is catching up when you need to go back to May 6th when we started this trip.
The convention doesn’t start until Monday afternoon, so this gave us time to do a little sight-seeing on our own. Our first project was a nice lunch in town. I turned on the computer & did a search for healthy eating in Minneapolis, and found a fabulous restaurant, Café 28 in a trendy neighbor quite by accident. It was located just blocks from Lake Calhoun, with interesting shops & spiffy old houses. Parking, however, is a nightmare. Fortunately, we find parking just steps from the restaurant & had a long enjoyable lunch. Thank heaven it's Saturday!
The following day, we drive into St. Paul & head for the Science Museum. The featured show is all the original gadgets & gizmos from Star Wars. The exhibits & displays are great fun & hopefully the pictures will amuse you.
Campground at Mystic Lake CasinoWith the convention a rousing success, we went south to the Mystic Lake Casino RV Park near Bloomington, home to The Mall of America. This affords us more opportunity to get cleaned up from our 6 days of boon-docking at the fairgrounds, a good “practice run” for our planned 9 nights at Oshkosh.
