Today has been all about driving. Earl and I left St. Louis at 10 a.m. CDT, drove through downtown and then it became all about Interstate 70 as we crossed Illinois, Indiana and half of Ohio before turning north along Interstate 71. After 9 1/2 hours of driving, we have settled on Cleveland for our stay for the night. We have about six hours of driving left. We should be home at a decent time tomorrow.

My mind wandered a bit as we drove merrily along and I have to say that I’m the most relaxed I’ve been in a very long time. It’s a great feeling.

Earl and I just had dinner at the bar in the lobby, we might go out for a drink before calling it a night.


Earl and I are packing up our little one week home here in St. Louis and getting ready to head back east. We have a long drive ahead of us and who knows what adventure we’ll find on the road. We are always looking for adventure.

Today is my sister’s birthday. She has been and always will be one of my best friends. I am proud to be her big brother. To celebrate I share a picture from our childhood days. It’s one of my favorites of us.
