Today we salute Jenny Kanz, biking the streets of St. Paul and working to study and control mosquito populations, keeping our storm sewers free of annoying bugs! 🚲
This giant trout is still there in Preston, MN, on the way to my grandma's house. After, I moved to Minnesota, I sent a picture of it back to my friend Preston in Utah who loved to fish (and still does, last I heard)
Most West: Turns out that Eugene, OR is farther west than any of the other "west coast" places I've been, and according to my phone, the train ride that took us near Junction City was west-er still.
So please enjoy a few seconds of the Amtrak ride between Eugene and Portland 🚆
Most South: Got invited to a friend's wedding in Puerto Vallarta, and the fond memories of the trip lasted quite a bit longer than the marriage did ( 😬 ). I would go back just for the tacos, any time
Most South ( 🇺🇸 honorable mention): This is Key West, near the Southernmost* point in the Continental United States**

The most East I've been in the US is either Maine (as an infant) or Boston (as a teenager) and I don't have photos of either, only fond memories of walking the freedom trail and eating pot pie and visiting colleges that would later reject my application

Most North ( honorable mention) Grand Marais! I stopped here on a camping trip earlier this summer. Lovely little town!
Fun fact: over 50% of Canadians live south of here
Since we’re not sure when he was actually born, we’ve always celebrated Clark’s birthday on August 26th, when he came to live with us.
The fact that it’s International Dog Day is perfect, but believe it or not, total coincidence.
Went disc golfing with some pals yesterday, something I do like once a year with absolutely no ambition to improve. Both my friends got personal bests on the course though, plus we made a new friend in the trees! #birds
I like riding bikes and writing code and playing roller derby and doing nice things for people
