Sounds like we did cross paths along the way as I was heading north and you where going south. The first night, June 19th for me I made it to Wakefield, Mi and camped only to have that storm in Duluth to deal with the next morning. That was some of the hardest rain I have rode through in a long time. I had a local out taking pictures of the flooding spot me and ask where I was headed, to which I replied north or west, I need to get to Alaska. Here was my gps track trying to get out of the Duluth area the next morning. My entire ride to AK and back. Due to limited time I had to take the same way on Route 2 from Minot back home.
