5am: Okay, the rabbits are not going to let me sleep any longer. It’s 5:01, so I might as well laod the car and get the hell out.
6am: Car is loading. It is 6am on the dot and we are heading out. Ravvits are not happy and the car is crammed full of graham. Adieu Minnesota.
7am: I’m 45 miles into WI. So far so good!
8am: I just passed mile marker 124 for Chicago. I’m making pretty good time here. Almost 80 miles the last hour.
9am. I’m halfways there. I’ve gone 227 miles in 3 hours and I go to 438 today. I just passed the exit for Circus World. Ah memories of John, Summer, Chris and I going there. Those poor animals. I wonder where House on the Rock is.
9:41am -Just filled up with gas I had a quarter of the tank and I’ve passed Madison, so I don’t know when the next big area will be. 273.1 miles on 3/4th of a tank. not bad.
10am - 291 miles in 4 hours. I am in the middle of nowhere. When does WI end?
10:07 - 300 miles. More than 1/4th there!
10:17 I am now leaving WI. Holy crap! About time. Hello IL.
11am. 363 miles. Here comes the tolls. (It ended up being $4.20 in tolls through IL)
11:41 - 400 miles. Traffic is slowing down to crazy levels. What is going on here?
Noon - 405 miles. I’ve gone five miles in 20 minutes. This is insane. The rabbits are freaking out and it’s 90 in the sun
12:54pm - Finally I am in Indiana. This was the worst driving experience I have ever had. It has been stop and go for over an hour. I should have been there at noon. Now I’m going to get there about 1pm.
12:58pm - I’m here. Thank god. I’m going to take a nap and be in a bed for the first time in a week. Ah the little pleasures.
