To Minneapolis and the FMCA Rally
We arrived in Saint Paul today for the 80th FMCA International Rally. On the way, we ran into a real mess with a detour on I35W. This pushed us into downtown St. Paul, which was a bit of a zoo with a 40' coach and tow car. Then to top it all off, the detour road was closed! This forced us to disconnect the tow car and turn around! What a pain -- but, we eventually reached the St. Paul Fairgrounds and parked on our site. We had a very nice site since we were arriving early to help as a volunteer.
Our first duty was to work as early security in the new coach exhibit area. Here we are guarding gate 17E! Obviously, no one is getting by this group of guards! We even brought the crack guard dog, Cody to assist.
We had a great first couple days here!
