I noticed in your 7th and final video that you rode into that bad rain storm in Minnesota. Do you happen to remember what day that was on your trip? On June 20th the second day of my trip I also rode into a severe storm and major flooding in Duluth. It took me over 3 hours to get out of the Duluth area due to many roads being closed due to flooding. I wonder if we crossed paths along the way? Thanks again for sharing, Fred.
LOL - Yes, it was the evening of June 19.
That was the clip about the zoo flooding and the animals escaping/drowning.
It just occurred to me that the animals were probably looking for a really old guy with a huge boat...

Here's my SPOTWalla with all the dates and times in EST:

On the SPOT track, you can see where I stopped in Superior at a Subway to grab some food and "regain my resolve".

I left quite a water puddle on the floor from my wet gear while I ate, then proceeded to Ishpeming for a dry motel room.
