On the way to the MOA 2010

Here we are stuck in Duluth, MN, with no way out.
We left early in the morning only to be in line on I-35 due to construction and a car disabling the traffic because it ran out of gas. What are we to do?
Sitting for about 40 minutes with no way out is very frustrating. Especially if you have about 1500 Miles to go to your destination and you are riding against the clock. We should be in Redmond, Oregon by Wednesday July 14, and here it is, Saturday Morning July 10 and we are only in Duluth.

I planned the trip, but not this delay and the high charges for Motel 6 in Duluth, MN. Arriving on a Friday night, we were under the impression that hotels in the business districts are empty. Moreover, yes, they were empty. Somehow, a policy passed that for weekends the charges for Motel 6 rooms increase quite a lot. I had to pay $ 97.49 for one night. That hurt! The Motel 6 in Duluth was not that great by the way, it could use a lot of elbow grease.

We had left Toronto and rode around Lake Superior, visiting Wawa and Thunder Bay. Now we are stuck in Duluth. I went to see the Aerostich Shop to pick up a ‘gift', which turned out to be a sticker of something green. I threw it out after receiving it. The whole stopover in Duluth was a waste of time. This was the third time I have visited Andy Goldfine’s place and each time I was disappointed.
I will say Good-bye Aerostich! Now, after paying a ransom for a hotel room, I am stuck on this one way Highway with no way out. All of Duluth was not a good experience.
