Day 3 started out pretty relaxed. We had some typical Hampton’s breakfast, then went to find a Starbucks so Mom could grab some Fargo mugs. The drive from Fargo to Minneapolis was pretty easy, about 4 hours. This will be our easiest day.
I decided I should check out the snow, since I need to get used to it now…
We arrived in Burnsville around 3pm (we started late) to meet the fam. As this is the midwest everyone within 200 miles came out for dinner on a Wednesday night. I got to meet a new cousin and we had a nice Chili dinner!
After a nice days rest we headed out at our usual 6am (7am) leaving time for day 4. This would be the most arduous day yet. I strangely miss the empty roads of Montana and North Dakota. Now the roads have reasonable speed limits and lots more traffic.
We got a little turned around in Chicago, but I’m a human GPS so I got us out alright. We also found out about the I90 toll system. Starting in Illinois we have to pay tolls. Everywhere. It’s ridiculous and I hate it.Tollway…
I do like all the weird pit stops though, it’s nice to have convient places to stop every 30 miles that let you get right back onto the freeway.
Tomorrow is Boston!
I can’t wait!
