One reason I don't like to travel
Since meeting Nightingale, I've logged more trips to Michigan than Missouri in a shorter amount of time. Actually I'm not sure about that statement but too lazy to fact check. It's probably about even.
Anyway, the hardest part about the drive is getting in and out of Chicago Metro traffic. It doesn't seem to matter what time we leave here or Grosse Point, there is always traffic and it's ugly cousin Construction to impede up.
Take our return on Tuesday.
With our GPS app telling us we had 43 miles and 1 hour 9 minutes to go.
Eight minutes later we have 33 miles to go. Then with only 15 miles to go, it is still estimating another 43 minutes! even with only 10 miles to go, it will take us 38 minutes to get home.
The closer we get, the slower we move because of traffic. Oh and guess what! There was a car accident that closed 3 local lanes to punish us for not taking the express lanes both chances we had.

Comments Encouraged! And the nice thing about this blog is that I rarely get spam so don't need to moderate the comments.
I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
