Duck Tape - If we did not end up going to Cleveland (not a place we planned to go) to get some needed work done on Peg, we would have never known that Duck Tape is headquartered in Avon, which is right outside of Cleveland. Yes the Duck Tape, the greatest invention of all time (or at least a good one!) They even have a Duck Tape festival - I mean who knew?
Campground Bathrooms - So we have seen many a campground bathroom/shower house along the way. Some are ok, most are not a place you want to spend too much time in. I needed a shower after going on a long, hot run in Duluth. So I grabbed my manscaping gear and trotted off to the campground shower house. Just my luck, I ran into a guy who wanted to talk. Normally that is fine but the bathroom was hot, stinky, dirty and the guy was totally nude. Yes that guy - older feller with a huge belly who wanted to talk and talk - I mean more than Renee talks for goodness sakes. And no, for those wondering, I did not look nor can I comment about more than his long grey beard and huge belly. He was a jack of all trades - CPA, lawyer, rich, best fisherman in the world, camping guru...you get the picture...I had nightmares for a few days.
Marketing at it's finest - We all know good marketing when we see it, but this takes the cake. Of course we buy only the best dog food for our girls but it was the little story on the back of the dog food cans (at a Petco in Duluth) that convinced Renee to make a purchase.
Cover Your Butt - Check out the billboard we saw in Duluth. I mean the message is good but did we have to see that?
