Sixth District Walking Tour: Schedule for Friday

At about noon today, I will resume the walking tour where I left off early Thursday evening, in Anoka, from where I will walk to Blaine, a distance of about 10 miles, and then on to Circle Pines (6 miles), for a total of about 16 miles.

Turns out, an easier route was from Blaine to Lino Lakes and Centerville. So, I missed Circle Pines. However, I met a middle-aged bicyclist from Circle Pines at the new bridge under construction between Lino Lakes and Centerville. He described himself as a “fiscally conservative Democrat,” so we shared a good deal of common ground about runaway deficit spending.

Finally, if any of the smokers outside Kelly’s Bar & Grill in Centerville read this, thanks for the conversation while I waited for my ride to the hotel. My wife took a video still of me in front of the establishment to document the end of my walk for the day and I’ll post it here after I get back home to Sartell on Saturday night.
