I’ve been laying low at my parents’ house in Saint Paul since early November—busy with awesome work projects and enjoying lots of family time—but I can’t stand the snow anymore. So, I’ve embarked on my next multiple-month adventure. The snow is already in my rearview, and I arrive at my destination tomorrow.
From Saint Paul, Minnesota to Kellogg, Idaho on one road
I arrived safe and sound in Kellogg, Idaho on Monday afternoon. I was exhausted after three days of driving about 8 hours a day.

Getting lost in three state capitols
I’m back in Saint Paul, Minnesota. (More on my next adventures soon.) On my second day traveling back from Colorado, I decided to turn it into a fun day of exploring U.S. history—specifically the state capitols of Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota. It was a great experience that I highly recommend!
