Road Trip Recap

Our road trip to Michigan took three days. We left South Carolina late on a Friday after we finally closed on Will's house.  We drove a couple of hours to Virginia where we stayed with my brother- and father-in-law.

South Carolina must have been sad to see us go because it rained and rained and rained. I wish I could say the feelings were mutual, SC!

We got up early on Saturday and went to breakfast at Cracker Barrel before we headed out. We made sure we had Samantha, our trusty Garmin navigator, to lead us down the right road.

The road started with a twisty drive through the Appalachian mountains .Unfortunately it was foggy so we didn't get a great view of the views :-(.

And we got to go through a couple of tunnels...

Before we crossed the Ohio River in to Ohio!

Ohio was really pretty-- I had never been to this state before (except for a layover in the Cincinnati airport). The eastern part of the state eventually gave way to flat farmland...

We stopped in Findlay for the night where we stayed at a Country Inn and Suites. It was a really nice hotel and the rooms were huge with high ceilings. It felt really opened and not cramped like some hotel rooms.

Kobe was pretty tired. We gave him tranquilizer pills to make the long ride easier for him and for us. (The pills were prescribed by the vet in preparation for the trip).

He was so tired he didn't even stand up to eat!

We woke up early on Sunday to complete the final leg of our journey.

Yay! We made it to Michigan!

We arrived at our house around 1 p.m,. and started moving everything in from the car. We are almost finished getting settled into our house (that's AHEM, by a lake). It's really quiet-- we can hear the pair of loons that summer here and there are swans that swim by.

I'll be posting more information about our new town, but it'll be a couple of days before my next post (still having internet issues).
