We left the Wirth’s complex and turn south-east down Red Wing Blvd and went to the Little Log House Pioneer Village. Visited the the Quonset Huts, old and new.

After this we departed for the backs roads, to Welch than on to MV Specialties World Head Quarters (just out of Red Wing, Minnesota).


Visited The Field of Honor Flag Dedication in Red Wing, Minnesota at Bay Point Park.

Proceed to Lunch at the Liberty Restaurant & Lounge.

From here, up on the Bluff to overlook the Town of Red Wing, Minnesota.

From here we went back to the Wirth’s Complex near Hastings, Minnesota.

Distance travelled was 63 miles. Good break in and shake down for the Canadian Convoy in a week and a half (June 09)!
