Tomorrow I am leaving for Minnesota and Wisconsin for a week of intense interviewing. 14 interviews in 6 days.
Along with river experts, artists, and community engagement people, I hope to be talking to Hmong, Vietnamese, African-American, and Prairie Island Indian folk who are connected with the river.
Along with all my cold weather gear, computer, books and so on, I have to bring all the audio and video equipment to conduct interviews. And of course Sam the Cat.
It is supposed to be a balmy low 30s this week, a virtual heat wave in the Minnesota winter.
Wish me luck.
