I left a day early - Wednesday, February 27 at around 1:00PM and drove to Hays KS. We headed to I-70 and turned left. Good weather and very little traffic. So, Sandy and I enjoyed our day - despite the fact (as we all know) there is Nothing - absolutely Nothing in Eastern Colorado and Western Kansas.
On Thursday we got up early and continued our trip to St. Louis. Again, a good day of travel - only hit a bit of rain/snow around Columbia, MO. Got into St. Louis around 5:00PM. Maggie, Jeff, Addie, David, JoAnne and I went to dinner and then JoAnne and I spent the night in a "camp ground" in downtown St. Louis - basically a parking lot.
For now I am posting a picture of a map outlining our intended trip.

On February 28, I will pack Tiger II (T2), and head to St. Louis to pick up JoAnne. We will then begin our month long adventure. Heading south, passing through Louisville, Nashville, Chattanooga, and Atlanta - then on to Lakeland, FL to make final arrangements for Clare. We are excited and looking forward to visiting Mary & RJ in Naples, FL. Continuing to the Gulf Coast and a leisurely trip back to Colorado passing through Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Along the way, we will do our best to post our progress and photos of the trip to this blog. - Stay tuned!
