A long summer’s ride

A pair of retirees from Wichita, Kan. are taking a trike trip from International Falls to Venice, La. along the Mississippi River in 2012.

They made their way through Otsego this past week on County Road 39. After about 50 miles they were getting hot and tired and looking for a campground, but found a Holiday Inn instead.

“The ladies at the front desk of the Otsego hotel “were so kind and gave us water bottles and printed a map to the nearest KOA.”

They later continued on their trek, taking County Road 42 along the Great River Road. To follow the couple’s progress, go to http://triketrips.blogspot.com/.
