Did I mention it was cold in Duluth? On February 19th we woke to minus 19 (with windchill it was minus 26). Some three thousand miles north in Kenai it was 32 above. That's just not right. And it didn't make me feel any warmer when the local Duluth news channels reported that a record for the most ice cover on the Great Lakes could be broken within the week. Too bad I won't be there to share this milestone with them.
A new wrinkle for this show was the "Australian Wild Animals." exhibit. It featured kangaroos, emus, wallabies, and kookaburras. This was definitely a hit with the children.
Seems kinda weird but an RV dealer featured a mechanical bull ride. Nothing quite says RV sales like a 10 second ride on a bucking bull. But then again, maybe they found this is good way to separate people from their wallets.
In the next couple of days Jane and I will be getting in touch with the people who requested additional information about Alaska. Be patient, we have you on our list. And, for the guy who wanted to know more about Caribbean cruises in Alaska, we'll get back to you later.....much later.
