I've been to quite a few Motel 6's but this is one had more than the usual share of problems. There were at least three people in the office but only one of them seemed to be doing any work. I eventually got checked in. When I went to my room I couldn't get in. I went to the front desk and they gave me another key. That one didn't work either. When I went back a second time I was told by another guest that you have to lift the handle up to get the door to open. Even with three or more people behind the desk and three opportunities to tell me this I was told by a guest, not an employee.
After getting a working door key I wasn't too surprised when it stopped working the next day. I went to the front desk and they tried to tell me it was because I kept it near my credit cards. I'd be willing to bet it was because the key was only programmed for one day.
Then I tried to used the Internet key I was given; it wouldn't work. I went to the desk to get another one. Someone came with me to make sure I got it working. It did work but then he told me it would be really fast so I ran a speed test; it was around 400kbps, which isn't very fast. He took me to another room where he thought the signal would be better. It was but the speed was still mediocre. I used the Internet for a while and then the password expired. I had to go to the desk and get another one. At times the speed of the Internet drops to the point I can't even load the speed test web site. The next day the Internet was totally unusable. I needed to look at a map and I couldn't get google maps to load.
The water pressure is terrible and when this is combined with the low-flow faucet heads the result is annoying. Filling a cup of water takes over 20 seconds. The room does not have any carpet, which in some ways I like but I think it contributes to the fact that it's noisy. There is one towel in the bathroom. The others aren't just outside the bathroom door by the sink. no, they're on the opposite wall about seven feet from the bathroom door.

... overpass at I-29 some 40 miles later! This is very flat country. Which would have made for a lovely ride if we hadn’t had a 10 mph headwind all day. Rodney soon figured out our riding plan – go as fast as we can without Ann having to work very hard. Which meant an average of about 13 mph. In the morning we did okay. We took a few pictures as we rode, and there were windbreaks of big trees to break up the fields. The road continued very flat ...
Made it to Fargo, ND today. It snowed this morning in Wisconsin and we met Emmy's friend for lunch in Minneapolis, MN.
We also stopped at an REI for a few minutes.
Roads in Minnesota this evening were icy in spots and it was very windy, but we went slow and made it here safely.
Sorry, there isn't much else to say since we haven't done any sight seeing yet. Planning on entering Canada tomorrow, so things should become more interesting.
... mercury to a sizzling 95 degrees by 9 a.m. The morning ride was easy, through the unique small towns of Enderlin and Kindred; gentle rolling hills past acres of corn, sunflowers, wheat and soybeans.
After lunch, everything changed. I came upon a road sign that was ...
... checked our visa and noted that it is not valid until January 12! If we had gotten on our Monday flight to Vietnam, we would not have been allowed to enter the country until January 12, which - a coincidence? - is the day we actually ARE arriving in Vietnam so we are fine. I shudder to think we may have been in the HCM airport for FIVE days before allowed entry. We are happy we were at home those days. Amazing, eh? We are still pondering what this glitch in our ...
