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 detail 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. His wife Gail is attending her 50 year reunion of her Bronson College Nursing class 1964. She will drive to Grand Rapids on Sunday and will stay for about ...
