First Day: Elkhart, Indiana

“Indiana wants me ... Lord, I can’t go back there…”
Remember those lyrics?
I have nothing against coming back to Indiana. In fact, it’s quite a nice state to drive through. Pennsylvania is a bear. It’s big. It’s usually packed full of trucks and lots of hills to go up and back down again.


Given that it’s Memorial Day Weekend, the traffic was pretty light once we got past the Pocono Mountains.

Sam threw up about 15 minutes in to the trip. Of course. He always gets car sick the first day out. Thank goodness I did not feed either of the cats this morning. I have learned the hard way even though it sounds cruel not to feed them.

We put three states behind us today in 11 hours of driving and 600+ miles: New Jersey (naturally it didn’t take too long), Pennsylvania (about 6 hours) and Ohio. We are about 60-some miles in to Indiana and tomorrow will tackle the Chicago area early on a Sunday morning, so that should be a piece of cake. Then it’s on to Iowa which is not much fun either since it’s very hilly, and finally the huge state of Nebraska. We’ll get 1/2 way through that state in to Grand Island tomorrow night. Once all the “I” state get past us we start to feel like we are truly in the West.

Pizza delivered in our room tonight which was absolutely delicious! The cats are adjusting better on the first night in a motel room than they usually do and the dogs have been fed, pottied and pottied again. Everyone is settled down now. One more out for the dogs and we can all lay our heads down and (hopefully) get a good night’s sleep.
So, as to the photo above: can you figure out just what is going on here? We did survive this scenario ...

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
