Today was Minnesota day. Rolling along two lane roads, past corn, soybeans, wind farms and ethanol plants. We took the back roads from Rochester to Pipestone, just to watch the combines harvesting corn and beans. Lots of cattle too, Charlois, Herfords, Angus.

Our lunch stop was pretty cool. We pulled off to visit the 1880 village railroad diner... We enjoyed bacon cheeseburgers and homemade chili in a train carriage that had been converted into a resto. Simple, gimmicky but a perfect stop on our long drive. Back on the motorway, we hit some ...
