I think I’ll move to Minneapolis. This city has the greatest bike paths ever! Yesterday Allan and I took the Grand Round Trail which circles lakes, the city and Mississippi. The trail went by gorgeous homes as well as wooded areas. Best of all, the trail was mostly flat! Later on, we rode through downtown Minneapolis which has bike lanes in the center of two way streets. So there I was, riding down the middle of a busy street with buses and cars whizzing by on each side of me. Everywhere we went, a different bike path led us on a different adventure. Tomorrow morning we’re attempting a mountain bike course across the street from our campground. The place is usally packed with hot-dogging young guys, so we’re going early before they get there and run us over.

This morning we had the fun experience of visiting the Minnetonka Moccasin corporate headquarters. Scott Sessa, president of the company, gave us a tour of the building, complete with a tunnel connecting the two buildings. As my daughter Sondra tells me, moccasins, (especially those with fringe) are in style. She’s thrilled we got her a pair of traditional beaded moccasins to wear at Indian Village where she is working as a camp counselor. Back at the Minnetonka Moccasin headquarters, the staff came out on their break and toured the RV as we thanked them for their donations of new shoes. Thousands of people in Africa are now walking in comfortable shoes because of Minnetonka’s generosity.
