I started on 14 Sept on this trip and as I had every intention of keeping a daily log of my trip that soon went right out the window. Below is the first attempt to write.
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.
Hello everyone. Contrary to rumors of our demise The Cedar Journal is still alive and kicking.
The hubby has been working hard in the Netherlands in hopes that the 737 MAX starts flying again soon so our lives go back to normal.
I travelled the Great River Road from Minnesota to St Louis and back and those travels along with a full hummm file will be available in the coming weeks and months.
Currently I am posting this from up on high, yes from the KLM 787 Dreamliner at 37000 feet (11277m).
This a first for me.
KLM is celebrating 100 years as an airline tomorrow. The MSP departure gate today had it decorated in celebration with cake, stroopwaffles, cheese, and other finger foods. What a nice treat for those of us lucky enough to have a seat on this flight.
So congratulations to KLM and all the professional staff that work so hard to make it a great company. We hope you are around for the next 100 years as well.

Now that I am back in The Netherlands I have a bit of time to reflect on my trip last month to Minnesota. Once I finally dipped my kayak in the water at Big Marine Lake I spent the last few days I had of my visit exploring the areas around the Southern edge of the lake.
This will be a blog about Minnesota seen through the Dutch eyes and some of the comments during their stay in Minnesota.
Besides catching a Minnesota trout, kayaking was the only other thing on my to “do list” this trip and so far the weather has been a huge hurdle.
The temperature hit 74F yesterday and the lake where we are staying had ice out a few days ago. Imagine the smile on my face at checkin when I knew I would be able to now get my kayak out of storage and onto the lake.
