Some trip facts. We will have traveled over 4,000 miles, consumed over 500 gallons of gas but have had a tremendous time. Been in 12 states too. Final details when we get home.
We are only going a short distance today as we are targeting reaching Kalamazoo, MI to pick up our brother-in-law Dick Wilson on Friday the 12th.
