I left yesterday on my adventure to Calgary. Drove from Acton to Sarnia, crossed the border through Michigan and into Indiana for a bit the onto Illinois. Chicago traffic was brutal, 2 hours plus just to get through the city. Stayed at the fabulous Super 8 Rockford. Went to Olive Garden for dinner, was spectacular as always. It was my first time eating there alone. Slept very well, and left around 9:30 this morning. Today was a pretty uneventful day. Drove through Wisconsin into Minnesota. The drive is gorgeous, rolling fields and sunshine the whole way. I’m now in Moorhead, just beside the border to North Dakota. Having a few drinks, relaxing and resting my calloused hands from driving all day. Onto Montana tomorrow.
