We got up bright and early to hike to the highest peak we could see from our site. There was no trail, so we blazed our own.
The Reluctant Hiker became the Angry Hiker about half way up.
We find it best to leaver her to wander, bringing up the [...]
I confess: I don’t actually mind picking raspberries even though I pretend that is it a huge ordeal (It is.). That it takes a really long time. (It does.) And that I have tons of other pressing things to do. (I do.)
If you happen to be listening to a good book on [...]
Up early… Well, not really. We’ve pretty much been up early everyday. We, as in Jen, Dave and Charlie. Morgan is working on pushing the weekly average night’s sleep to 15 hours. Today’s 7 am roll call might have cut it down to 14.
We ate a quick breakfast of [...]
Hi Everyone, just a short break in the Road Warriors “action.” I’ve been told by my “best” friend that the trip log is a little “boring” this year. I mean, I’d like to tell you there was another car wreck or a speeding ticket. Another huge fight and four more blown tires, but there simply [...]
“Did you take a dump in my bathroom?”
Yes, folks, that was probably the first words out of the ever-rested Morgan Menke’s mouth this morning.
Good morning to you, too, honey! Morgan has taken ownership of the outhouse here at Miner’s Lake Campground. “It’s clean. It smells good. And there are no flies.”

Morgan, who went to bed at [...]

It was warm, but not ridiculous hot, and after sitting around for a while snacking — why, after 20 hours of driving does sitting down feel so good? — we walked down to the lake. [I [...]
Saturday, 8/4/12. PART ONE.
Cool Green Moss on a Stump
We actually did a pretty good job of driving thru. We stopped outside of Fergus Falls for fast food around 7:30. Arby’s, of all places. For years — forever, really — Arby’s has been the butt of jokes for the Menke family. Don’t get [...]
I been saving myself for the past two months. Gearing up for Road Warriors.
No. Not really.
Actually, if you want the truth, writing here is a luxury. I love it. But it feels…irresponsible, somehow, when all Hell is breaking loose elsewhere. So, it becomes a luxury I can’t afford. Is that the long-lost catholic [...]
And that’s about the only good news.
I’d love to rant and rave about all KINDS of blog posts that I have written in my head as I go from one crisis to another, always 7-19 minutes late for everything, but I don’t have time. Charlie has to ref in about 30 minutes, Morgan has [...]
