It looks like the guy who took a hammer to Michelangelo’s Pietà has been to Bemidji.
I spend another day in the tent waiting out the rain and gusty winds.
The next morning, I ride out to the Headwaters of the Mississippi. There is a marker and you are invited to “wade across the Mississippi” but given the chilly temperatures, I decline.
Then, it’s on to Bemidji. It’s heavily overcast so I’m getting almost nothing from the solar panels and use up what I have left in the battery. I reach out to my first Warmshowers host of the trip and I’m grateful to receive an invitation. Tomorrow morning, I have an interview with BBC radio in Northhamptonshire, England!
