To start my roadtrip, I packed up everything the night before. My entire car is full, with almost two weeks worth of clothes, all accessories for my laptop, two tents, cot, other camping accessories, food, 10 gallons of water, maps, etc.
I then made a stop in Ypsilanti, MI to visit Donald who had my camera, which I definently need to have with me on such an occasion as this
I then follwed my Mapblast directions towards Kelly's House in Bloomington, IN. Until I arrived on the outskirts of Columbus, IN I thought I was right on course. Apprently Mapblast decided to change the city that I typed in, and took me to the exact street address in Columbus. It was a bit confusing too, because Columbus is also south of Indianapolis, so it appeared I was heading in the right direction. This is the first major mishap of the trip! Glad I got it out of the way.
So I gave Kelly a call, and she got me new directions to her house, which was only one hour away, so not too bad of an oops. It turned out to be a blessing, because the drive was quite scenic. It took a few pictures along the way, but it was in Rural Indiana at sunset. Amazing.
I arrived at Kelly's place at around 9:00pm, just before dark. We got to hang out for the duration of the evening, catching up on things, and discussing our study abroad experiences.
Not too bad for the first day, and even familiar territory gave me a suprise :-)
