We were raised in Minnesota and anyone who lives in Minnesota knows that one of the most common vacation destinations during the summer months is “up north”. Up north meaning literally anywhere north of where you are and also the northern half of the state.
Minnesota also more than lives up to it’s slogan of the land of 10,000 lakes… in reality there are 11, 842 lakes bigger than 10 acres each… but who’s counting besides the DNR… anyway, it’s a gorgeous state literally peppered with thousands and thousands of lakes and the thing to do there when the weather is nice is to “head up north to one of those lakes, which is what Kari and her friends do… head north to an area filled with lakes and the small towns and people who depend on those lakes and their visitors for their livelihoods.
In today’s story…. Kari gives you a glimpse into what it means to head “up north” to the lakes of Minnesota and the kinds of adventures you might have in the show we’re calling Welcome to Lake Vermilion or how in the hell did I end up here on vacation?

Kim introduces her four sisters in this episode featuring Kari Flodin, Jenny Gardner and Erin Beach.
Kari's husband Jack was a pretty special guy and when he came up with the idea of getting a pet donkey, he and Kari had a good laugh and carried on... but only until September of 2018, when we lost Jack.
When Jack passed, Jenny, Erin and Skye flew from the Midwest to Florida to be with Kari and almost her new pet donkey! Can you have a donkey in the guestroom? Does she need a goat now, too? Would they end up at Donkeys are Us? Listen now to find out.
Jack was a great guy, a retired homicide detective and as mentioned, a great husband to Kari, you can learn more about him here.
