Sioux Falls, SD to Winnipeg, MB Canada – Day 4

Kreisers – Sioux Falls, SD

Sioux Falls, SD to Winnipeg, MB Canada (535 miles) Total Trip Miles – 1669

Weather – warm & but slightly less humid with highs in the low 90’s and clear skies.

Joined Dave Larson, Denise Gregory and all the folks at Kreisers for a breakfast Rally Event – a traditional breakfast of eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes & sliced fruit was served to start us all off to a hearty meal.  Kreisers employees were invited to make donations to Rally and Dave offered to match that total.  Both Denise and I were taken on a tour of their corporate offices and there were great pictures of Dave’s grandfather who started the Kreiser business and his father that continued to legacy – Dave makes it a 3rd generation company with Scott Larson, Dave’s sone,  rounding out the 4th.  Congratulations on a wonderful success story!

Rolled out of the Kreisers parking lot at about 9am bouind for Winnipeg crossing into Canada mid-afternoon and only taking about 15 minutes.  After answering a half dozen questions or so, I was cleared and allowing to continue on my trip north.  Met Michael Brown at the Northland Healthcare offices and was given a tour of their main facility –  Northland offers a strong home healthcare presence in the Winnipeg area along with physician office supplies.  From there we both joined Donna Jackson from Northland for a great Canadian dinner!  Ended the evening with a grand tour of city of Winnipeg about 800,000 people.

I did note one thing after crossing th Canadian border – the road are a bit bumpier…will just have to wait and see how that might impact my speeds and travel times.  Michael was gracious to allow me to stay at his home – he even left his vacation spot from out of town to join me for the evening!
