>The Bulldog Road Trip

14 November 2005

>I understand that three posts in one day might be a little overwhelming to you people, but I feel this format is superior to one big long post, since the topics are so different. Now you can read them one at a time and really savor the moment.

The primary purpose of this road trip was to make a coaching visit to the DECC, but it quickly turned into a scenic tour through the hometowns of many Bulldogs. We also stopped off at the US Hockey Hall of Fame, scoping out the future corner of the Runninwiththedogs Tribute. Corner? you say, You don’t belong in a corner! Well, I appreciate the sentiment, but once the initial exhibition is over with, a corner is good enough for me. I’m not conceited or anything. Anyway, from the hallowed streets of Mountain Iron, MN to the tough back-alleys of Bovey Minnesota, we visited no less than 16 hometowns of 21 once and current Bulldogs.

Hermantown, MN, home of Nick Kemp and Jon Francisco
Mountain Iron, MN, home of Matt Niskanen
Vadnais Heights, MN, home of Matt Greer
Plymouth, MN, home of Jeff McFarland
Bovey, MN, home of Marco Peluso
Pengilly, MN, home of Josh Miskovich
Proctor, MN, home of Nick Anderson
Maple Grove, MN, home of Ryan Swanson
Coleraine, MN, home of Beau Geisler
Duluth, MN, home of Matt Mathias, Mark Gunderson, Ryan Coole and Adam Coole
Minnetonka, MN, home of Drew Otten (and current RWD world headquarters!)
Twig, MN, home of Steve Rodberg
Grand Rapids, MN, home of Michael Miskovich and Craig Pierce
Hibbing, MN, home of Chad Kolar
Ramsey, MN, home of Jerrid Reinholz
Elk River, MN, home of Richie Anderson

*we were pretty close to Esko, MN, which is home for Josh Johnson, but we didn’t actually go by it since we didn’t travel that stretch of 53.

Still waiting on the pilgrimage to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
