Feeding Minnesota's State Bird

Read: Mosquito!

After several weekends of house fixing-uping, we are ready to get back to geocaching. We put up the final trim in the bathroom and calked around the toilet. (If you care to see and read about the new bathroom floor, it's here. Read the comments of each photo to get the whole story.) When we finished, we suddenly found ourselves with absolutely nothing to do.

How about some geocaching?

We were both pretty worn out, so we chose to check on one of our nearby caches on the Luce Line and drop off our Rails to Trails TB.

Ah, Minnesota. Our State Motto is, The Land of 10,000 Lakes . . . And 100 Billion Mosquitoes, all Living in Harmony.

The only place in the world where mosquitoes are large enough to slap back!

They're so big here that we keep them out of the yard with a chain-link fence.

Up north they actually breed with moose. Yeah, they're called moose-quitoes.

But enough of that! After donating a pint of blood to the state Department of Natural Resources, we headed back to the safety of our home.
