Made a trip up north to Minnesota (Chisago City) and then later to the Hayward Wisconsin area. Started out as a road trip for my son Ryan and I to attend my nieces wedding. We listened to the ISU Cyclones playing Oklahoma. We missed hearing most the game as we lost our radio station, but what a great result! Before we left, a good friend of mine and my brother's, stopped by on his way up from Austin Texas to wedding. I of course quickly put him to work splitting wood. He was nervous with the Fiskars and I just couldn't convince him to get closer to improve his swing. I was actually relieved when he called it quits. An incredibly smart Electrical/computer engineer, but not the best lumberjack.. After a morning of showers the sky cleared and the day was perfect for their wedding. Here my brother and his wife look on as the vows were exchanged. Here is some of my tribe. Daughter and her boyfriend, my youngest son in the middle and some yaywho on the right. After helping clean up after the reception we grabbed a motel for the night then headed out to the land of cheese bright and early the next day. More posts to come.
