We hit the rode again to Sudbry. There we head to Dynamic Earth, a museum which is beside the Big Nickel. After lunch, we went on a tour in a real mine which was in use maybe 50 years ago. We got to see what miners used and did in the 1800's, the 1900's and we finally saw what they do nowadays. Did you guys know that from the early 1900's to 1970 something they allowed kids in mines? Weird isn't it? Anyways, now that we are talking about this I better get the mines before I'm late!  (Celina) 
Jules had been noticing that the brakes were now starting to squeak a little too often, especially since the hilly region around Lake Superior and decided that they needed to be looked at.  Well - I would never have guessed how difficult it would be to find a mechanic who will do work on a 30 foot motorhome.  I did call AMA/CAA to ask them for a recommendation - since they would have to send us somewhere if we did have a break down.  They directed us towards a tow truck service - who then recommended a shop that does big trucks and works nights!  So Jules pulls up to the place, has all of us sit out on the curb in the sun at 5 pm and told us all to look pitiful!  The guy took a look at the brakes and a look at us all and said that he would do it!  Luckily he did it for less cost than it was for an oil change.  We did spend the night in a hotel - ordered pizza and swam in the pool!  Still 6 people in one hotel room - not much more comfortable than the motorhome.
