Breakfast with the Wolves

Well, not exactly. There was a beautiful buffet laid out in the hotel restaurant, but that was for the Wolves. I had to order off the menu. Blogging nurserymen get no respect.

Mankato

Drove down to Mankato after class to do another motivational speech for teachers tomorrow. Seven hours. Some nice scenery between St. Cloud and Mankato on Highway 15. I look forward to seeing the Minnesota River valley tomorrow during the day. New roads for me.

Got to the Mankato Holiday Inn and checked in. Sort of like Rochester...a quiet downtown.

I thought it was kind of odd that there were a lot of tall guys hanging around the hotel. They looked like basketball players, so I wondered if there was some sort of college tournament in town.
