Wednesday is "Roadtrip Recap" Day.

Roadtrip recap: the breakdown of our trip to the big state of Michigan

My riding buddy up North this past weekend was my brother. He was lots of fun.

So let's break down the road trip state by state shall we?

  • We stopped in Big Cabin for a bite at McDonalds. Paisley went for a walk with her AJ.
  • I may or may not have cried when we crossed the state line into Missouri.
  • We rocked out to Bon Jovi, Journey, Pat Benatar, and Elton John.
  • We had a tire tread come off the moving truck in St. Louis and it was raining. It was not pretty.
  • Also, I thought people were bad about not following yield signs in Oklahoma, well Missourians have them beat. A guy pulled out in front of me in the rain in the dark and then proceeded to honk at me because of his ignorance. I honked bad and said a few choice words because you know he could hear me and all.
  • We listened to the shuffle option on my iPod at this point.
  • We stopped in Effingham. It was effing uneventful except for the part where Paisley didn't sleep well.
  • We woke up the next morning and headed out determined to make serious time.
  • We didn't get to stop in Ft. Wayne, but my mom and siblings stopped on Monday. They were really impressed.
  • We wasted 30 minutes going out of the way to find a Taco Bell. So we used another 20 getting Subway. We hopped back in our car because Michigan wasn't too far away.
  • When we got in the car we realized that the radio had gone to be with Jesus finally. Will was starting to doze on me so we played the letters game. He barely won...okay okay. We were tied at Y and he found the Z. I was in the lead the entire time until then.
  • Paisley slept the entire day because she didn't sleep well the night before. Lucky dog.
  • We finally made it and were never so happy to see the place!
  • I got really desperate and sang 99 bottles of pop on the wall. Will was less than amused.
  • And we made it into our new city of residence!!
It still is so crazy that we're here. I keep waiting to pack up our things to go home from vacation or something.

Oh yeah, Loren and Will this song is for you.

Happy Wednesday y'all.
