I think the earliest I'll get to Edmonton is May 3rd. I'll leave St. Louis on the 26th. This assumes the Northern Midwest has fewer distractions than Texas.
Unless you're severely distracted by planted fields, you'll be OK in the Upper Midwest. And, Yeah!, there are lots of interesting things to see, especially the beauty of Wisconsin and Minnesota with all the lakes and rivers (that means river valleys full of curves and twisties) but not as grand as the Tetons and Rockies, especially the Canadian Rockies where I'm headed in about 60 days!:grin2:
You're making the Meet & Greet in Ainsworth Hot Springs, BC, right? June 24-27.
