Whew! We are home! We went to a reception in MN for the kids. Two nights getting there. Two nights there. Two nights back. On the way up we spent the night with my aunt and uncle in southern Illinois then had lunch with the sibs in central Illinois then back on the road. Our goal was to stop about midway through WI for the night. On the other side of the Dells about 8:30 p.m. we decided to call it a night. Unfortunately we didn't take into account the Tractor Pull. Every hotel in town was booked. So we drove to the next town, and the next and the next. Same thing. We went through five towns with every hotel booked for the tractor pull. The next town it was a wedding and a baseball game. The town after that it was an aerial show. Finally, at two in the morning, we found a Motel 8 on the other side of Minneapolis that had one cancellation. We took it!
