packing up and heading out! ;-)

Well, we have the route planned and are ready to go tomorrow evening! I'm excited but dreading the long drive at the same time. The first night/day will be from home to Des Moines, Iowa. We made it that far the last time we drove, it's about 15 hours away and 1065 miles. DH remembered the hotel we stayed at (pet friendly LaQuinta Inn) with a pool and an Outback steak house near by...then he searched some more and found a hobby store there! lol So I hope the trunk is too packed for him to buy any more models, he's getting a little overboard with them, been buying a lot from ebay. After that we'll have another 10 hour day on Wednesday, so we'll make it in 2 days with the second leg being 630 miles. Whew that sounds like a lot! We'll head out late Monday night and Paige and I will sleep while DH drives. Figure we'll get to Iowa between 3 and 5 pm if all goes well.

So, if I'm not here that much you know why. Have to get everything packed tomorrow night, if we put the soda's in the car in the morning the heat of the day could make them explode! lol Add to that my tummy has been acting up all day and I'm not feeling good, man this is going to be a long trip.

Send me an email jodi_wiese at yahoo.com or crazy4crochet at gmail.com if anyone would like a post card from Michigan!

Oh boy, that's a lot of driving! I hope the hours pass quickly for you. When you get to Des Moines you'll be about 2-1/2 hours west of me. Give a wave in my general direction. :-)

Have a safe trip!!
