I just retired last summer. For awhile now, my spouse and I have kept a list of road trips we want to make in Minnesota. Many of them involve fishing trips to some of the lakes up near Bemidji and travels to see friends throughout the state. We’ve already crossed a few places off our list and have many more adventures planned.

The most important trip we made was the one a few months ago to Hopkins Honda. We needed an affordable, reliable vehicle¬†with room for our coolers, suitcases, and–of course–my fishing gear. Although they have a lot of certified pre-owned cars and SUVs, we researched their new vehicles on the website before visiting the dealership.¬†We selected an Odyssey SE and got a fantastic deal with a financing plan that met our needs. We’re very happy, and planning a visit to Lake of the Woods next summer.
