Time to STP: 154 Days

I knew that I was doing a 2 day ride, this was never a secret to me.  Something that I was trying to figure out.  But, I had been waiting to work out accommodations until I knew what the midpoint would be.  Well, after looking at the Facebook page and all the advice about getting a room soon, I decided to look into it this morning.  As of this writing, there was virtually nothing available.  A room at the Great Wolf Lodge (around 300 bucks a night) and a room at an America's Best for 434 bucks.  Yes.  A Travelodge analogue wants to charge $400 for one room.  Hello price gouging.

Lesson for the future: Book well in advance.  Really well in advance.
