While the "CLOSED" signs have angrily been applied to Minnesota rest stops and state parks alike, I wonder, what are the other 49 states supposed to think? Really? Do I live in the one state that says bah-humbug to the most important National Holiday, and our government cannot agree to the point of a shut down? With all the passersby and the wanderlust travelers on the highways this weekend, I guess the message we're sending is, "don't stop here." A bit sad.
On the brighter side of the road, it looks like I won't be stopping my columns either. I was published for the second week in a row! You can read my article in the Sartell Newsleader by clicking here!
So it looks like this week there's no rest for the weary travelers and writers alike. We'll all just keep up the good fight, plan our fuel-ups accordingly and celebrate the 4th of July wherever we land.
Happy Independence Day!
