Last night we cashed in some of our Christmas and birthday gifts and enjoyed dinner at Red Lobster in Ames, IA. Everything was delicious (Brian loves the Lobsterfest) but when we got back on the road the wind gave us a bit of a headache. There was lots of patchy ice but we made it safe and sound into Owatonna. We probably saw 100 cars and semi's off the interstate between our house and the hotel but we're not sure how long some have been there.
Today we're going to Medford to look at some outdoor gear and then we'll drive into Minneapolis. It's nice having time to relax and talk. We both had very funny dreams last night so we're wondering if its the room or the fatigue, or maybe the Red Lobster.
