Hooray! We're visiting Sharon, who's moving to Turkey at the end of the year.
We started out from the house at 6 am, and arrived earlier than expected, around 2:30. We took the route suggested by Google Maps when you select "Avoid highways." A lovely ride through Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri farmlands and small towns.
Sharon, Ulysses and I drove to a park with a nice playground in the evening.
Ulysess loves the dogs, Savvy and Piper.
