On the Road Again — Our 2018 BSD

With Spring finally showing some evidence of arrival and despite the cool temps and remnants of snow in the shade and on the north-facing slopes, it was a great joy to get out on the road in our MINIs for the 11th EIM Border Skirmish Drive (BSD) this past Saturday. Our rendezvous in Decorah at the trout hatchery offered some nice social time as well as fish feeding and Decorah Eagles watching (even live on our smart phones while standing under the nest). Even though northeast Iowa and southeast Minnesota had received a foot of snow three days earlier, the Driftless Region roads were amazingly clear, dry, and as twisty as ever. We enjoyed our lunch stop in Spring Grove, MN at the Ivy Grove Cafe followed by some of the best roads of the day. MN-76 north of Caledonia, County Road 13 west of Houston, and MN-43 south of Bratsberg are always among our local favorites.

Our final stop back in Decorah at the world famous Toppling Goliath Brewing Co. was a real treat, both in terms of the experience and the libations. Our group extends its sincere thanks to Director of Hospitality Josh White for the cheerful gift of his energy and time in providing us a special, dedicated tour of the TG Brewery operations. It’s truly an amazing place.
