Ohio update

A check came in, so Lili and I are going to be leaving for Ohio on Saturday. I have rented a van for a week (just to be on the safe side versus inclement weather).

In the meantime, I’m going to try to get some articles written ahead of time so that they can be posted in my absence, but that’s not a guarantee. I’m trying to get as much done today and tomorrow as possible.

Mostly, I think it’ll be a great little break for Lili. She’s been working so hard and she deserves a little adventure

    I don’t suppose that you’ll be passing through central IL?

      Northern Illinois, I guess? It’s a straight shot on I-80, apparently. I was thinking of stopping at Davenport for the night, or maybe someplace east of Chicago (South Bend is on the map, but I know nothing about it), but I just don’t know. I’m a little concerned about stopping along the way, but I don’t want to drive myself in the ground (no pun intended), either.

        Driving past Chicago can be slow going if you catch it at the wrong time of day or wrong part of the weekend. I think you’d have smoother driving if you tackled that stretch on Sunday during daylight. That, and I really recommend staying they hell away from Gary at night, even if you are driving past at highway speeds.

        I’d kind of like to catch you on your way through, but we’ve got a full schedule over the next couple of weekends, and 4 hours round trip just for a brief visit is hard to justify in any case.

    I like to imagine that on this trip somewhere you two will happen by a field of flowers. Out of sheer joy and giddiness you’d gleefully tromp and dance and skip your way through the meadow, ending with you guys back in the van and on the road, but with flowers in your hair.

    I’m a god damn cliche generator.
