It was a busy day in Minnesota. Yesterday we arrived Minnesota-St.Paul where we rented a ridiculous GMC truck for a reasonable price. Being a bit jetlagged, we instantly decided to drive 200 miles to Duluth trying to keep our eyes open. It seemed only a short distance, but miles take a bit longer then our kilometers. No problem for us because we are both young and full of caffeine.

This morning we visited the Duluth Pack manufactory. We were given a great tour by the very kind Molly Solberg around the factory and the store. Finished with a great lunch at Northern Water Smokehaus with fabulous sandwiches (later more on that). Thanks to the rain we’ve spend a big part of the afternoon browsing 2 antique shops around Canal Park to find some interior items for our new shop. Blessed with a vintage American flag and some very old tools (like a log roller) for the new store we moved southwards towards Red Wing… Stay tuned…
