Solar powered...that’s awesome. I think I am solar powered too! Enjoy Minnesota for me too- we missed our annual trip there this year and if by chance you go through Ottertail County give Uncle Dave a wave for us. Have a great trip!

Enjoy your trip. I hope you share details with us! Be safe. ❤️

So fun that you're headed to Itasca State Park -- home of the Mississippi headwaters in my home state of Minnesota. Enjoy!

Charlotte Moore

Trust you all have a safe trip and a very enjoyable one.

Have a wonderful trip! Six years ago we moved to the Duluth MN/Superior, SO area and absolutely love it. I first started following you when you had your stroke, several weeks ago God put you on my heart. I search and searched for your blog, I couldn't even remember your last name, sorry. So I've been lift you up again in prayer. We all need it right?!? Enjoy, every day is a memory.

You'll be going to Lake Itasca, home of the headwaters (also home of the worlds largest mosquitoes). One of our lake homes is in the area on Lake Kabekona in Laporte. If you have time, you should swing through Dorset or Walker (short drives from Itasca), they are cute little tourist towns. I don't know if they are still doing it during covid, but Lake George (another tourist town in the area) has the best blueberry pies at their cafe. Enjoy!
