Day 1 of our mini-vacation – on the way to Chicago.

Well the trip was pretty uneventful – I-94 tends to be that way. We eventually hit the road around 8:30am, saying bye to our doggie, who was off to spend a few days with her favorite pit bull friend.

We kept going until we got to Jackson, which was our first bathroom break. Here I learned a little history – see below.

For some reason I really like these Michigan Historical Society boards.

And onwards. Traffic was great until we had to pay to drive on the stupid Indiana skyway – we sat for a solid hour going nowhere. See below for some stunningly interesting images of our view.


Isn't Indiana wonderful???


No worries - we got outta that jam as soon as we got through the tool both - (here's our cash for delaying us) - and into Illinois... some pics along the road now...


I'm not sure what the above building is - but it looked good.

The traffic getting into Chicago got a bit heavy - they seem to be looking for roads to dig up all the time.

Anyway, we made it to out hotel with ease. The Hyatt Regency in McCormick Place. Entire trip took us about 5 hours - not too bad really.
