We wrote briefly the other day about a problem with SPAM coning into our blog’s comments, and Rick kindly showed us how to block that.
The blog post reminded us of a different kind of Spam, the kind in a can, and our visit in 2003 to the Spam Museum in Austin, Minnesota. We had just visited the Wisconsin Dells and were on our way to the Winnebago-Itasca Travelers (WIT) club’s Grand National Rally in Forest City, Iowa.
An afternoon spent at the Spam Museum was a nice break from traveling. We started the day with brunch at Johnny’s Restaurant across the street from the museum, feasting on Spam and French toast and eggs. Then to the museum. What a blast!
We learned more about Spam than we ever felt there was to learn. But it was a kick because the Hormel Company has a tremendous sense of humor about this product, coupled with a tremendous pride in all their products.
We really enjoy eating Spam, but then we weren’t in the trenches during World War II, where Spam was a staple that our guys learned to hate. At the museum we bought five cans of Spam, in flavors you don't often see: BBQ, Hot & Spicy, Spam with Cheese, Hickory Smoke, and Garlic. The garlic flavor Spam is not even sold in this country except at the museum. It’s packed for sale in Korea and Japan!
In the seven years we’ve been full-timing, we have seen natural splendors, historic sites, amazing structures and interesting people. While we are temporarily off the road, we’ll try to revisit with you some of the highlights of the more mobile parts of … Our Life on Wheels.
