Wednesday June 11

Made it to Chicago in 2.5 hours
Listening to our road trip playlist on spotify and Into Thin Air by John Krakauer (audio CD)
Drove 430 miles before getting gas with about 80 to spare, averaged 30mpg in the loaded down Subaru, currently averaging ~31 through the hills of northwest Wisconsin.
Found New Glarus beer and a plethora of other awesome porters and stouts.
Hooray for Spotted Cow!
Remembering my trip to the Wisconsin Dells with my mom as a kid: getting sick and going to the hospital, Wisconsin Ducks, gigantic waterparks. Great job driving all this way Mom!

Things I've noticed:
-Minnesotans are very friendly
-Minnesotans talk very slowly
12 hours of driving is a long way to drive, but not so bad when you have an awesome Co pilot.
Alexandria, MN looks like awesome biking territory!
And indeed it is! (got to ride with some super awesome dudes) 
A huge thank you to Jake's Bikes for putting me in touch with Craig Andrews and a huge thank you to Craig for putting me in touch with Ralph!
Had a fantastic 25 mile ride with a really cool group of guys around some of the lakes here in Alexandria.
Only stop #1 and I already want to pack up and move away to the land of 10,000 lakes.
