MONIKA is off to New York City, well Brooklyn, to test the market with our brownies. We decided it would be a good idea to travel cross-country together. Chat and have one big long business meeting in the car. All was fun until Monika got caught doing 87 in a 70. But our officer was so nice and dropped the ticket down to 79 in a 70. We may have given him some brownies and a wink:) Anyways, the rest of the trip was pretty great. We stayed with friends in each state we stopped and they were all so welcoming. Denver Dan had salmon spread, wine, and a wonderful dinner ready for us when we arrived. Kansas brewmaster Geoff and Ashley welcomed us with a bucket of beer he brewed and a warm summer rain shower. We ate ribs and baked beans while we watched it pour. At the end of the night, they were so nice to give up their bed for us. Little did they know how dirty us traveling girls were. Hope they washed the sheets. Then, Chicago Paul and Nancy treated us to beers in the backyard with snacks at our arrival. What more could you want. All and all, Monika and I learned a lot about each other, made new friends and well, it was fun!
