I was with family in Michigan for over a week, but it was time to get back on the road and start making my way westward. As I said before, I did travel east more slowly than I was expecting, and with the hurricane’s aftermath in the Carolinas, I have made some changes to my path.
From Michigan I will drop south into Missouri, and start making my way west, loosely following Interstate 70. I still have so many things along the way that I want to see, and I am sure that more will continue popping up on my radar. That’s the problem with any trip; there are so many places to see and so little time, realistically. There is so much that I have to skip. Unless someone wants to volunteer to be my benefactor, so I can just stay out on the road! Just sayin’…
I’ve gone a bit soft, having spent close to two weeks in real beds, in real houses (and one night in a hotel). I have been spoiled by my parents, aunts and uncles, and have loved seeing them and many of my cousins. It is interesting to be back in the car and alone again!
Yesterday I did some organizing; pulling things out of the car and rearranging to make better use of my available space. I had pulled my sheets out to wash them, and yesterday I pulled my mattress out to rebind it, then put it back in and made the bed. It felt good to get things neat and organized again – it is hard to stay on top of it in such a tiny space!
Today I visited Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and enjoyed the crashing of the waves on the beautiful sand beach. I hope you are all happy and well!
