We are getting closer to going on vacation. 10 days and a wakeup. By this time 11 days from now, we will have just landed in International Falls, got our rental car and probably checked into our hotel. Starting from the day we leave, I will be updating my blog so that you can follow along on our vacation. Each night I will make a blog entry letting you know how the day went, what we did and how the fishing was. I will also upload photos of any serious fish that we catch along with scenery and wildlife photos. The first day will be a travel day. We will be spending two nights in International Falls, MN. The 2nd day that we are in International Falls, Veronica and I will go shopping to get some of the provisions that we will need for our 2 weeks at AML, Andy Myers Lodge on Eagle Lake. Usually we go shopping at K-Mart and then one or two grocery stores in the area. We usually get up early after our 2nd night in International Falls and go to the Chocolate Moose Restaurant...our favorite restaurant in the area. Actually, all of our meals are eaten at the Chocolate Moose. It is a really cool loking restaurant...kind of has a cabin look and feel inside with Moose being the strong theme. After eating we head off to cross the bridge, get through customs and be on our way. Sometimes it takes quite a while getting through customs but other times it goes quickly. There have been times where we sit in our car for several hours to drive through customs. It is of the upmost importance that everyone make a bathroom run before leaving the restaurant and heading to customs. I will be taking tons of photos to share with everyone. It should be both fun and exciting. Hopefully you will stop by and check my blog during our vacation so that I can share the experience with you.
