Well it started out leaving Oklahoma on Monday for North Indiana just outside of Sound Bend (so, yes we had to go by Norte Dame). Ending the week up in Wisconsin and we visited Lake Michigan today. But, let me tell you the drive through Chicago was no picnic and the Expressway was anything but Express :). Driving through Indianapolis on Tuesday was no picnic either. You might think we are crazy for driving but I absolutely love seeing the various country side. The pictures below are from the country side in Wisconsin shortly after crossing the state line. I missed a couple of other shots that I would have loved to have taken and had I not been on a time table for work I would have maybe even stopped and taken some others.
I especially love pictures of older farms! I guess to me they hold stories and memories of our history / heritage as people and country.
The other thing is that it has been nice traveling with my husband. I have driven 10 hrs. By myself and while I can do it, I certainly feel protected having him with me. Plus, we carry a gun with us too. In preparation for the trip, I made sure to pack my emergency light and travel kit (both from Damsel In Defense) - I don't leave home without them and neither should you! Or, at least an equivalent to them. You can go to my website www.mydamselpro.net/PRO13361 to look for these and other Defense tools.
Pictures here below are of Manitowoc, WI and Lake Michigan where we are at for a couple of days. A little chilly / windy out but otherwise it is absolutely beautiful. They have a submarine from WW II but since I'm a tad bit clostorphobic it is probably not a good idea for me to try and go in.
