Sounds like a lot, but it was only 370 miles (600 kms). Actually, that is a lot for us! Today will be even more!
We've been putting the cruise control on at 55 mph (90 km/h) and just relaxing. The little blue car uses a lot more fuel at speeds higher than that, so we're happy just sitting at that speed even though some of the roads we were on had limits of 60 and 65 mph.
It was really windy yesterday. Fortunately, it was behind us and we had a strong tailwind most of the day! We got great fuel mileage.
Still frozen Lake Superior.
Not a great picture, but I include it here just to show you how windy it was.
Huge welcome center near Ashland, Wisconsin.
Coming in to Duluth, Minnesota. It was raining and windy!
We stopped to get gas in Duluth. I got out of the car and just about froze! We wanna go back to Mexico! Paid $3.499 a gallon, which is about $1.02 CAN per litre.
Uneventful drive in to Grand Forks. We stopped at the Walmart and did some shopping for things we would need this summer that are cheaper here. Only 6.75% sales tax here.
Then we headed over to our couchsurfing host Debra, and met her dog Sammy too! Spent the evening talking about travel and drinking some wine.
Yesterday's drive, 370 miles (600 kms).
Today, we're doing a marathon! Planning on making our way from Grand Forks all the way to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. It's 476 miles (760 kms) so we had better get going!
