This is an example of what the scenery has been for the last two days - corn fields and more corn fields. But something exciting did happen today - other than being in two states that I have never been in before - I saw my first Amish man - in a horse drawn cart - he was going over the interstate on a road - We waved at him and he waved back. We also saw some Amish men working in the fields with their horse drawn wagons. It was really pretty cool - Dan says that we might go down into Indiana to an Amish community while we are in Michigan - that would be neat.
This is a picture of the Mississippi River on the border of Minnesota and Wisconsin. I thought that was pretty neat - we have been across the Mississippi many times but always down in the south - not up north. Anyway, I thought you might like to see it.
Not much else happened today - just a lot of driving - we should be in Kankakee tomorrow - it will actually be a short day - I think Dan said it was about 150 miles further. Anyway - it should be a short day and then we will be set up for three days - We will go on into Michigan on Friday - this will also be a short drive and it will be nice to get set up and stay put for a couple of days. I'll let you know what we do and where we go.
Let me know what you think and keep the comments coming - it keeps me going. (Damn - the Patriots just won! Oh well! Maybe the next game will be better)
Talk to you tomorrow!
