You know it's colder in Minnesota, right?!
We've owned an Illinois farm since 1887. All of these have been found in our ground over the years.
After my recent trip to your wonderful country, I got back home and really wanted to own a Dutch bicycle. Found an importer in Chicago. I miss the Netherlands already. Here is my new Gazelle!
When I saw this truck this morning, I thought about this sub. Spotted in Minnesota.
As a gringo, there is nothing tastier to me than pastel and a Guarana while in Brasil.
My wife and I haven't been to Brasil for almost a year. Tonight, we needed to taste it.
Gives zero F's
As a transplant from casserole country, this is my first Tatertot Hotdish I've made since living here. After a number of years, we recently made a commitment for what looks like the long term. Figured this was an appropriate celebration meal. Bon appetit!
Everytime we drive on Fernão Dias from Campinas to Lavras, I have to stop at Vaquinha and get this. Been doing this for years now.
TIL: Tim Doyle did a King of the Hill drawing.
Eu sou um gringo e gosto muito assistindo do Faustão nos domingos.
O tempo não pára....
Approximately 1000 people from 89 different countries becoming US citizens today in St. Paul. One of which is my Brazilian wife!
I'm a gringo and this was my idea! Brigadeiro rolled in crushed up candy cane. Muito bom! 🎄

Out of MSP this morning.
The advantages of being married to a Brazilian woman.....
I'd say the majority of people's reactions are like this.
Sou um gringo. Fiz isso..,
Bom dia, gente. Onde eu moro nos Estados Unidos (Minneapolis, Minnesota) tem a temperatura de -33C com vento Frio de -51C hoje de manhã. ❄️🥶❄️🥶❄️🥶
My favorite city in the Netherlands. I'll spend a lifetime returning to this place...
I've been trying to cut back on my biscoito consumption. This is how things usually go.

Circling around for approach at MSP this afternoon
Uma noite com chuva em Campinas.
First trip on the Greenway. Such a beautiful morning.
Dear motorists of the TC region, stop doing this.
But I also don't think Cheese Bread is entirely accurate. 🤷♂️
I welcomed this break in my ride. Who doesn't love trains?
Just slap some speed tape on that
Pro meu aniversário, a minha esposa fiz bolo de milho para mim. É o meu bolo favorito do Brasil.
After getting groceries I took a spin by the lake
You do the walk around, I have a few more things to check here.
The view right now from my hotel window near Confins Airport
You're weak, spineless, a man of temptations. But, what tempts you?
We get it Canada, you recreational marijuana....
She absolutely loves pão de queijo 🐈
Prost, from the US my German friends!
Early morning rush rain
The view from our Illinois farm this morning
My heaviest load yet. About 10kg of groceries in the basket and 20kg of cat litter on the back. No 2000lb metal box was necessary to accomplish this shopping. However, a bicycle infrastructure would have made this easier though.
Came back to our Illinois farm last week to do some work. I moved away 6 years ago thinking I'd never miss it. I can't wait to move back here some day.
I went to the store and came back with these. My wife started laughing at me. Later, she explained......
Do you see what I see? Just spotted this while watching the morning news up here in Minnesota.
I'm trying to find out how cheap or ridiculously expensive Faustão's shirt is. Can anyone find it for sale? I'm having no luck so far.
I thought receiving this was kind of cheesy but I know Hank would be proud. Plus, he'd call me a jackass if I threw it away....
Feliz Dias das Graças dos Estados Unidos. Edição Brasileiro. Na casa dos amigos quem tão aqui para um sabático.
Eu fiz Pudim. A minha gata gosta a cheirar.
C-5 Galaxy Cargo Intake
The living room is ready for Christmas. Also, there is snow outside.
I know this isn't conventional cozy, but during international air travel it's nice to have a little spot like this.
Transit and Tacos are equal to one another in quality in Minneapolis
Nothing fancy. Just a picture I took this morning while delivering propane......in MN.

Tonight's dinner is breakfast. Eggs, fresh cheese, hash brown, and avocado.
A calm, cold morning on the Mississippi.
With what other modes of transport can you pull right up to your refrigerator to unload after a grocery run??

I can show you how...
Was looking at the trail area around Lake Harriet on Google when I noticed this...

Confession from Dale
Alguém quer vinho?
Busiest airport around. Come on Fi! After I looked everywhere for a non-existent Trolley at MSP, I get this when arriving at ORD?
I had a few different things to accomplish today.
This view lasts just under 10 minutes
After many years of maintaining a prepaid SIM for Brasil, it's so nice to just keep my sim/phone number, arrive, turn it on and it just works! Without outrageous fees! Thanks Google! Oh and by the way, screw you AT&T....
Almoço em casa. Arroz, feijão, linguiça, salada, e mandioca frita.
More snow, more propane.
I just bought these Brasilian items in the US. Cost was $39 USD...
Did the proper thing by riding to the DMV to renew my driver's license
One of my favorite streets to dine on. 's-Hertogenbosch.
When you're the biggest bike on the block, parking can be a pain. Hope for an end space.
Anybody else still using the old luggage tags?
A good day to be out slinging Old Lady Propane. I like to think Hank would be proud.
The sun gave it a good try this morning
I deliver propane to people's houses. This was one of many signs on a customer's property today.
The Piedmont Pacemaker sitting at MCO this morning.
Today's grocery haul
The beautiful Sint-Jan Cathedral in 's-Hertogenbosch. I could feel the history in this place.
As a Christmas activity we decorated sugar cookies. My wife decided to take a try at the flag.

Some cooked ground turkey and pão de queijo for lunch
Lunch the past few days. The green is avocado, chicken, jalapeno, red onion, celery, salt/pepper, garlic, and olive oil. Sat on top of freshly toasted sourdough and topped with Sriracha and Japanese 7 spice.
As an AVGeek, dirty windows are frustrating.
It was pretty but I'm more than ready for summer.
I'd be fine if Fall lasted all Winter up here.
Sharing my soon to be commuter. After we move into Minneapolis from the burbs, I will be able to put my bike to more use.
Ontem a noite em Brasília (Águas Claras)
I bought a 6 pack of candles off of Amazon. Here's the instruction label on the bottom of each.
The mixing point above Rio Negro & Rio Solimões today on the daytime Azul Campinas-Orlando flight. We were the only ones looking for it as only our window shade was open. Rsrsrs
I know this is a long shot, but I'll try. Anyone know the clothing maker of the outfit that Monalisa was wearing this morning. My wife really liked it and I'd like to find it for her. Brigadão.
The view at our farm this morning
For the goodest gas in Minnesota....
My cat wanted her picture taken with Faustão
lol - sign probably
I have no patience for motorist entitlement like this.....
For our kitty, the window perch is a cozy place
Love the views at Schipol this afternoon
The more I drive the back roads of this State, the more unique things I come across.
Probably one of my favorite parts...
Ate at The Black Forest Inn in Minneapolis, Minnesota tonight. They sell these t-shirts.
Out of MSP on Tuesday morning
A bit of black and white
A brief visit by the sun this week in Brasilia.
It's -28 C outside with snow everywhere in Minnesota. We celebrate by watching others celebrate on Globo. It is what it is...
Just finished watching all of Avenida Brasil and also picked up a new shirt. Divino!
Good Morning Minnesota
From this mornings walk
If you live in the 🇺🇲 and want a taste of 🇧🇷, here is what $134 USD will get you from a US based Brasilian grocery store. 🤦♂️
This mornings destination ride. The Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis.

I normally have an hour in at work by the time I see this.
Bom dia de Confins
Black/kidney beans with tumeric and nutmeg. Chicken breast in a coconut balsamic reduction. Wild rice. Spinach/arugula with olive oil and cherry tomatoes.
It wasn't raining on me, but I stood here today and watched two separate rain storms move across the land. This is in Brasil.
For fellow Americans and Brasilians who live in the US and come to Brasil often, check out Google's Project Fi. We love it! No more maintaining a prepaid Brasil sim card for when we travel. Just bring your phone and use it.
That'll buff right out....
Just in case you didn't know this exists....
So the old equipment needs to be labeled 787 compatible?
