Trip Day!!!! It's finally here!!
It's hard to believe the day is finally here that we get to leave. I was still working on our route until 10:30 last night. But I'm pretty confident - that we have a route set - and if we get off the plan we have the map and will be able to find our way back to where we need to be. We planned on getting up early and being at the car rental place right at 8 when it opened, but when you don't HAVE to get up at 4AM it's easy to sleep in So we ended up being at the car rental place around 930 and were back at home and ready to pack it all up around 1030 or so. We left the lane at 1245. We headed for Windsor. We grabbed a couple of pizzas and stopped in and had supper with Joel and Teri. Crossed the border at about 6 pm. No hassles there - just answered the questions and we were on our way. We missed an off ramp that would have kept us on US12, but we were still on I94 so were still headed in the right direction. Jade got the map out and we figured out if we hit US52 we would pop back down onto 12, so that is what we did. We saw some nice old farms and old farm houses - some very large ones. We pulled over when we saw a big dinosaur, which ended up being an old abandoned amusement park. Here are a couple of pictures of it. It was pretty neat. We stopped for the night at about 8:30 in Jonesville Michigan. Stopped at a Days Inn. Gonna have a nice sleep, a free breakfast and then on the road again in the morning!

The last time we drove home from Arizona we listened to Randy Travis music pretty much the whole way home....look what was playing today!
