Tuesday, August 7. 2012 - We left Tomah at around 8:15 AM with a quick move from the hotel to I-90 W. The Microtel was a good deal. The breakfast was about normal for "free breakfast": red delicious apples for fruit, waffle maker, instant oatmeal, and a selection of three dry cereals. They did step it up a notch by having boiled eggs! The room was small, but very comfortable.
Not long after we started our route we passed into Minnesota. Impressions: The barns are beautiful! Little traffic on I-90 W. We lunched at in Worthington, MN, at a Subway so I could say I'd "been" to Minnesota. Then South Dakota. Impressions: More traffic. Lots of motorcycles coming and going. (The annual Sturgis Cycle Rally is this week http://www.sturgismotorcyclerally.com/) Speed limit: 75mph. Acres of sunflowers! Beautiful!
We pulled into Mitchell, SD, at around 3 PM and checked into the Kelly Inn and Suites.
While Wayne caught up on the day's business I took a walk on a walking trail right across from the hotel. It was a little warm! 90 degrees here. For supper we chose take-out from Corona Village Mexican restaurant. It hit the spot! Tomorrow we zoom on through South Dakota and land in Wyoming....
