Why not Minot?

We are at the Wal-Mart in Minot, North Dakota (map). We were here in Minot almost exactly five years ago for the FMCA convention, back in the days when those rallies attracted several thousand coaches.

It's quite a change from the more serene and pastoral quarters we've enjoyed for the last few days, but we had many errands here in town. For one thing, we needed a UPS store to drop off one of our eBay sales, and for another we needed a laundromat, and we found both yesterday. We also had quite the shopping list; we did part of it last night as we walked back from dinner at Mi Mexico restaurant across the parking lot, so we'd at least have breakfast items this morning. In a few minutes we'll go back into the store for the rest of our list.

Today we will continue southeast, towards Fargo. Our conference in Minneapolis is now less than a week away, and I'd like to be in-area at least a full day ahead of time, to get settled. We also know some folks there, and have some things to pick up that are waiting on our arrival in a more major city.
