    since the timing didn t work out this seemed like the next logical step Normally I want to have nothing to do with this kind of automation instead preferring the tactile experience of holding and parsing a map but I m allowing an exception for this trip We re going to a couple dozen towns and cities for the sake of time and sanity I m happy to reassign some of my navigatory duties to Mr TomTom The second is a very special very dangerous little device that allows wireless broadband from anywhere on the Sprint PCS network It s not mine it s my cousin s and he was gracious enough to let us borrow it for the duration of our trip I plan on treating it like The Ring grant it too much power and it threatens to destroy from within It s just too damn useful to pass up though I see us enforcing a strict time policy on its use Just enough to keep you lovely people in the loop then it s back in the holster for another day COMMENTS Drew Jul 5 05 35 PM Say something Name Remember Email http Message Navigate Go Home The Numbers 3260 miles driven 30 miles ridden by ferry 105 gallons of petrol purchased 3 92 cheapest price per gallon Roseville MN 5 40 priciest price per gallon Rural Ontario 3 nights spent at friends homes 8 nights spent at hotels motels 2 nights spent at B Bs 5 nights spent camping 2625 photos taken 4 unsolicited questions about the Fit and its gas mileage 7 unsolicited admirations about our awesome Travel Scrabble kit 3 lottery tickets purchased 0 money won 24 Sandy s license plate game score 24 Sarah s license plate game score 2 1 Head

    before with great success figuring that if worse came to worse we could redo the route mid trip Then three nights ago Sandy said with some trepidation I was um thinking that maybe maybe maybe the whole northeastern part of the trip is just too much Maybe we should skip Montreal and the Adirondacks So here s the new and improved and much more sane route A route that allows us to occasionally spend more than one night in a location and gives us much more time for mini golf Chicago Iowa City Trempealeau WI Minneapolis Apostle Islands Lake Superior Upper Peninsula Sault Ste Marie Bruce Peninsula Toronto Niagara Falls Finger Lakes Pittsburgh Cedar Point Ypsilanti Michigan Chicago View Larger Map COMMENTS Say something Name Remember Email http Message Navigate Go Home The Numbers 3260 miles driven 30 miles ridden by ferry 105 gallons of petrol purchased 3 92 cheapest price per gallon Roseville MN 5 40 priciest price per gallon Rural Ontario 3 nights spent at friends homes 8 nights spent at hotels motels 2 nights spent at B Bs 5 nights spent camping 2625 photos taken 4 unsolicited questions about the Fit and its gas mileage 7 unsolicited admirations about our awesome Travel Scrabble kit 3 lottery tickets purchased 0 money won 24 Sandy s license plate game score 24 Sarah s license plate game score 2 1 Head s up Trival Pursuit record Sandy v Sarah 1 1 Mini golf record Sandy v Sarah 69 68 First game 51 58 Second game 1 speeding warnings received 1 speeding citations received 22 mph over limit we were driving 10 mph over limit nice Michigan state officer cited on ticket The Plan Sandy and Sarah spent 18 days road tripping around the Great Lakes This site is an aggregation

    decision of the trip but now of course we re facing hundreds of more decisions about where to stay what to see where to eat etc It s enough to make a guy s circuits go haywire So help us out Ever been to any of the above places or traveled the routes between Got any recommendations about where to go The travel books are thick and we don t care to sort through them all so we re likely to give high priority to a trusted recommendation Particular categories we re interested in Hotels motels guest rooms Restaurants Ice cream shoppes Parks campgrounds Swimming holes Offbeat museums Mini golf courses One more thing we re going to have to take interstates and interprovinces if we want to finish this trip before October but it doesn t mean we have to like it If you ve got a particular stretch of two lane highway you think is worth taking point it out The fewer semi trucks and Cracker Barrels the better COMMENTS Luke Jun 23 10 23 PM Sandy Jun 24 08 02 AM Megan Jun 24 09 31 AM Jim Jun 25 11 51 AM donna Jun 25 05 12 PM Sandy Jun 26 03 34 PM Joe Jun 28 02 36 PM Joe Jun 28 02 43 PM Sandy Jun 28 04 16 PM Say something Name Remember Email http Message Navigate Go Home The Numbers 3260 miles driven 30 miles ridden by ferry 105 gallons of petrol purchased 3 92 cheapest price per gallon Roseville MN 5 40 priciest price per gallon Rural Ontario 3 nights spent at friends homes 8 nights spent at hotels motels 2 nights spent at B Bs 5 nights spent camping 2625 photos taken 4 unsolicited questions about the Fit and its

    a hard choice to give up a few new projects for the chance at a couple month of relaxation and travel The big travel plans are coming up the two of us are taking 17 days in July to drive a lopsided circle around the Great Lakes This left June unscheduled a gap I quickly plugged with another week long trip to the farm Despite its definitiveness the farm does not refer to one particular place Two years ago it was the Wormfarm whose CSA we were a member of and where a year earlier we got engaged Three years before that it was the land of some old family friends in Brown County Indiana This year I offered my able adequate muscles to any member farm of Home Grown Wisconsin the wonderful CSA we currently belong to Doug of Meadowbrook Farms took the bait resulting in my spending four tremendously fulfilling days this past week as their farmhand Suffice it to say the experience was just what I wanted and If I can at all make it happen I ll be going back again later this summer It ll certainly be at least an annual thing I haven t until now stepped back to work out what it is that draws me there It s always seemed naturally satisfying The fresh air the open sky the remoteness the physical labor with a purpose it all congeals into a sublimity that I rarely ever find living in the city Yet as I talk with people about it I m finding it necessary to defend the trip This apparently isn t everyone s cup of compost tea For me I think it comes down to two things One ties into my indecisiveness The variety of experience that makes urban areas so
