Saturday, July 30 - St Cloud, MN - 205.1 miles, 17,275.3 for the trip
While sitting in the shade behind the trailer yesterday I noticed a dragonfly that really liked the tip of my cell antenna. I got a picture - not as good as some from my garden, but it is a Minnesota dragonfly! I also took a photo of a dandelion next to the trailer. By the way, the Pelican Lake Recreation Area is a nice place to stay, either overnight of for awhile. Many of the sites are on the lake, all have electricity, and a few also have water. Clean restrooms, and good hot showers.
I got a bunch of things done over the morning. First I washed the trailer, including the chains - it no longer smells like a skunk, then got an empty propane tank filled. Since they charged by the gallon and couldn't figure out how to add 1/2 a gallon, the fill only cost $9.00.
I continued east on 212, switched to MN 23 at Clara City, and stopped at the AAA office in St Cloud. Unfortunately, they are not open on Saturdays. Since it was a hot, clear weekend, I decided to call ahead to my planned stop, the Grand Casino Hinckley RV Resort & Chalets in Hinckley, MN to make sure they had space. A good idea - they are closed due to wind storm damage. So, checking the AAA book, about all that was in reasonable driving distance was the St Cloud Campground & RV Park. They were also full, but managed to find space in their overflow area. I even have electricity (20 amps) and water at a tent site price.
