This is going to be a short update because I am posting to the blog via phone. Our big news of the week is that we are officially in round two of the Travel for Good contest thanks to your votes! You guys are awesome! We will let you know on July 1st if we win the trip to Alaska.
This week took us from Ontario to Montana with a great stopover in St Paul to visit our friend Terri. Tomorrow we start a week long volunteer trip into the Montana wilderness. More on that in tomorrow’s update.
Hours volunteered: 0, but we attended a spaghetti dinner that was a fundraiser for the Copper Harbor volunteer fire department
States & Provinces:
4 States and 1 Province
Michigan, Upper Peninsula; Wisconsin; Minnesota, St Paul; North Dakota
Budget: Way OVER! We actually paid a few of Jay’s medical bills this week and bought new boots so this was our most expensive single week of the year.
People Visited: Becky Conlon and Terri Tupper
Nights under the stars: 4,
1 on the St. Joseph’s Island in Ontario, 2 in the Ottawa National Forest in Michigan, 1 at Fort Wilkins on Copper Harbor, Michigan
Best meal: Jay’s bacon cheese burgers at the campsite take high marks. The perogies at Bobber’s Cafe near St. Joseph’s Island deserve a shout out, as well as the Ice Cream at the Grand Ole Creamery in St. Paul.
Best beer: Muskoka Dark Ale and the Muskoka Summer Weiss From Bracebridge Ontario were Jay and Sharon’s favorites respectively
