Ahhh…The start of a New Year, an escape to nature. We had planned for weeks to escape the fireworks in our part of The Netherlands to a nice quiet location in the eastern woods of Drenthe.
Our New Year here at The Cedar Journal has finally started and with a huge bang. As promised we headed to our scheduled escape from the yearly fireworks of New Years Eve. I visited the last of the 12 provinces on my Dutch “must do” list with this camping adventure to Drenthe.
With about everything except the kitchen sink, we loaded our VW Caddy and set out on our two hour drive across the country towards the German border.
Have you have noticed that we have made some changes this last year to our transportation fleet?
December is a perfect time to update everyone on our changes and introduce officially our new fleet.
I started at Banning State Park and then headed south towards my campsite for the night at William O’Brien State Park. I have visited this wonderful Minnesota State Park many times and continue to find it an enjoyable park to hike, camp, kayak, and fly fish. Close to the Twin Cities and a short drive to one of my other favorite places Forest Lake this park is nestled along the St Croix River.
It has been a whirlwind few weeks. Vacation in the North part of The Netherlands to traveling in the USA.
My most recent journey started at the end of September as I flew into Minnesota from Amsterdam. I took one day to pack my car with all my camping gear and suitcases. Then started my 1975 mile round trip journey along the Great River Road.
