We Start for Chicago

Ned and Joe at the Start of Route 66

Our first leg is to Chicago, IL and the beginning of Route 66. We are staying overnight with our friends Matt and Sharon. We started off the morning with a stop at Zingerman's Deli for breakfast with Mom and to pick up goodies for Matt and Sharon. After saying, "Goodbye!" to mom we headed west.

It rained most of the way through Michigan though it was dry when we reached Indiana. We made a quick stop for a new hat for Joe and arrived at Matt and Sharon's. After unloading their packages we headed out for a great Mexican meal and then took the El into the loop to walk around Millennium Park and the Taste of Chicago. After hopping the El back we were pretty tired and quickly found ourselves asleep.
