Our adventure begins early on the morning of January 9. This was the scene in our back yard after about two feet of snow fell in the weeks before our departure. Sub-zero temperatures, but it had been cold and snowy since my last golf game on November 5. T. J. came out and spent the night with us, then took us to the Grand Rapids airport ...
... here, even in a packed bar on NYE no-one was drunk. No wonder we were popular with the barmaid, she was amazing, we only had to look at her and a drink was on the table. I think her maths was off tho, because she only charged us $60 for 2 meals and enough drinks to make the walk home very comfortable, we gave her a great tip and left after a really nice NYE.
