Thursday morning, at 4 AM (Indiana Time), these four brave young ladies packed, and I do mean PACKED into my car, and along with our guidance counselor, Shelli, we headed off into the wild blue yonder.
From left to right they are Emon, Danielle, Sarah and Chari. (pronounced Carry)
Also, you will observe just how like sardines these girls were packed into my car.
Around 6 AM, we made a rest, breakfast, and gas stop. Danielle had a bit of a time finding all her "stuff" so she could get out of the car.Ordering a little breakfast before we climbed back into the sardine tin.
My photo journalist, Shelli, was fascinated with the transponder that let us sail right through the tolls in the I-Zoom or I-Pass lanes. (It is pretty cool, you should get one if you go on toll roads much!)
Later, when we were somewhere in Chicago, the sun began to shine upon us.
We arrived in Wisconsin a bit early, so at 9 AM (Wisconsin Time) look where we stopped!!!
We had some important shopping to do. One of us forgot her towel, shampoo, conditioner, and soap. It wouldn't be nice of me to tell you who - - - but let's just say her first initial was Shelli.
After the shopping, we found the camp and got settled in. We were still early enough that we had time to - - -
Find a Culver's and enjoy lunch.
OK, I'll confess - - - finding the Culver's was a huge accident since we were looking for a completely different town than the one we ended up in. I do have a great excuse - - - I could barely breathe at the time due to some kind of asthma attack, and I don't usually even HAVE asthma.
I think it had to do with the outdoor temperature - - - - but you'll hear more about that later - - -
