Well, here we are in glorious Minneapolis, MN.  So far I’ve discovered that Marriott maps hasn’t a clue where their hotel is located.  As usual, I go to the hotel site and print out the driving directions from MSP to the hotel, then I shove them in my trip folder.  No, I didn’t look at them.  I get to the airport, have a beer with the illustrious Mr. & Mrs. Frisk and all the little Frisks and Grandparent Frisks, leave the airport, hop into what passes somewhat for a car and guide myself onto the interstate.  So far, so good.  I make it to 100 easily enough, then I pull out my directions to figure out what happens next.  This is what I see:
