Where I stayed
It was another driving day. And when I say a driving day, I really mean it. We were in the car from 1:00 to 10:30 with an hour time change and two bathroom breaks. It took us nearly four hours to get out of the Chicago area. Yikes. It's no wonder Brian is sick of driving. I have offered to drive, but he wants to be the man and do the driving
We listened to two more discs of The Killer Angels. I wrote some cards. Brian drove and sang songs. We saw a car fire near Gary, Indiana.
Today we reached our ninth state in nine days. We left Illinois, drove straight through Indiana and have ended up here in Toledo. Here's one thing I know for sure: Toledo, Ohio, is a pit. I am not a big fan of Ohio, as the times I've been here it's been either way too hot and muggy, or mega-snowy (okay, I liked using the snow blower, but really, once is enough). I don't really like Ohio at all and I'm looking forward to leaving it behind tomorrow.
We plan to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow before heading in to Pennsylvania. We'll have The Killer Angels finished just in time to see Gettysburg.
