Westward Ho, Day 1

In case you were wondering…

I’ll be offline for most of the next four days as I cruise my way to Washington. I hope to get back to blogging shortly after I arrive there.

  1. Look at all that promising road construction along the way! :) Safe travels, and see you on this side!

    • Construction? About 100 miles of it outside Chicago. Freeway widening for the incredible urban sprawl. How do people feel okay about driving that far to get to work?

  3. Stay safe and have a wonderful trip full of pleasant adventures.

    • Thanks, Julianne. So far I would classify the trip as beautiful and monotonous. Can one stand too much great scenery?

      • By the time my fiancé and I got back from our trip to California and back, I felt like I had seen more mountains than should ever see in their life! :D

  5. You could always detour a little south on your way to see the world’s largest little red wagon, and the man with a beard of bees….

    • But then I would have missed the billboard for Dave’s Toe Service. I am still wondering if it’s for auto rescue or a mobile pedicure. Or maybe a tow truck driver with a foot fetish.
