RocketMac - Heading home from Minneapolis to Milwaukee

[edit] Plans

The trip on Monday went so well, I decided to see if I could hit any hashpoints on the way back. Only two were within a reasonable distance. It was going to be later in the evening maybe even dark, but I decided to try.

[edit] Expedition

My departure from Minneapolis had been delayed by the worse traffic (2 miles in 25 minutes at one point) and then with a longer than planned dinner stop at Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge which put me at the nearest freeway exit approaching dusk.

After the freeway it was one side road after another and another each lasting longer and longer. It was getting darker and I didn't know if I would be there before dark.

When I reached the spot, I realized what I was seeing on the map between the road and the hashpoint. Corn. And lots of it.

The advantage of all those delays in town and the twists and turns away from the main roads was the sky. Without the light pollution, the night sky was full of stars.
