“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

My exquisite lodging in Minnesota
Friday, April 10, 2009

I spent two nights in Northfield, Minnesota as my daughter did overnighters at two colleges. Each room at my inn was based on a book. I just happened to get "Little Women."

"Oh, Dad," my daughter said when we walked inside. "I guess this'll be your chance to get in touch with your inner girl."


Am getting lots of good research for my work-in-progress: a Dad's guide to finding the right college for your kid. Talking with lots of parents and counselors here in Minnesota and everywhere I've been going. I'm thinking Blue Highways meets the Princeton Review.
