Where I stayed

So, we ended up traveling about 500 miles yesterday.  Olivia was our navigator and accomodations reservation agent for this day.  She picked the Parkland Village Campground from our large campground directory because it had Wi-Fi...a true teenager she is!  We called ahead and made reservations.  We arrived at about 10 p.m. and manged to find our site with a little help from the campground manager.  No need to disconnect tonight, cause we are off in the morning.

Olivia was a bit surprised that we did not have a day by day plan of reservations and campgrounds selected.  I told her that takes the fun out of the adventure.  She seemed to agree.

Last night we had severe thunderstorms, and I mean severe!  Torrential down pours, hail, lightening, and thunder.  I woke up three or four times, and thought, "Should I run for the ark?!".

The good news is that the camper held up just fine, and we are still dry.  We have about 2 more hours of drive time to our next campground which is about 15 minutes from Mall of America, where we will spend the day...and too much money!
