One day, four states, two friends

15 Dec

Heading into Wisconsin

This morning was four states ago and feels like a lot longer.  Since leaving Ann Arbor, Michigan, we have been through Indiana, Illinois and now here we are in Wisconsin.  On the way we saw Gary, Indiana

Gary, IN

Out transplanted friends

which, let’s just say, is a shadow of its former self, Chicago where Casey and Soozy had a fierce run down the beach along the shores of Lake Michigan

Blustery on Lake Michigan today

and we stopped just outside Chicago to have lunch with our friends David and Jovan that Marci  fixed up on a first date in 2000 at the East Coast Grill.  They just celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary!

We’re now past the halfway point and I’m no longer worried about the weather.  Everything looks good for a late sunday or early monday arrival except a solid plan for where we’re going to watch Tom (Brady)vs Tim (Tebow)!  Tomorrow we’ll make South Dakota and we’re both a bit surprised at how easy this trip has been.  Not to jinx it, but so far, so good!

Casey and Soozy have been real troopers. They have adapted to life on the road and have enjoyed staying in a new hotel everynight. Marci  wonders if they think we will be living this way for ever. She predicts that  they will sleep for weeks straight once we finally arrive in our new winter home.

We appreciate the comments from y’all and just want to say “keep’em coming” so we know you’re out there!  If there’s anything you want to know or any  news that you want to share from home, let us know.

    Just arrived in Vermont! The ride up was windy and wet. Just as we were going over the gap it started to snow!!!!!! just a snow shower however. Looks like another warm Vermont weekend. There is more of a coolness to the air, so maybe the pattern is changing!!???! Love the lake shot!
    Go Patriots!!!!!!

    When I subscribed to this page, the first thing I thought of was Ricky Ricardo on the “I Love Lucy” show (which was my favorite show growing up!)-Ricky saying to Lucy-“you’ve got some SPLAINING to do…” I’m not sure if that was your intention with “gone SPLORING” but, it gave me such a chuckle, thank you! I’m so glad the ride is going smoothly for you two. Be well, safe and, of course, I know you will be happy! Love, Christine
