Day 4: Chicago to Cleveland

We made it to Cleveland. Now there's ten days where I don't have to wake up early and get in the car for a lengthy trip. Of course, there are two weddings and lots of family stuff with the Kramers, but as long as I don't have to drive, I'm totally game.

Here's what we did today:While driving through Indiana we had to stop for a bathroom break and somehow, we ended up in Michigan. Apparently we were straddling the state border for the entire trip, and the slight left turn we made off the highway exit put us over the line. The hotel we stopped at in Sturgis, Michigan is literally right on the line. The woman at the front desk told us that the parking lot was technically in Indiana while the actual hotel was in Michigan. Good to know.

When you travel across the country there are a good number of bugs that meet their demise at 70 miles per hour against the front of your windshield, hood, headlights and license plate. Here's a quick look at some of the highlights of this little discussed aspect of the trip.My once white license plate now has a speckled look.

Enjoy Cleveland.

And by that I mean you should have stayed in Kansas City longer.
