We left early Saturday morning and drove almost to Omaha, NE the first day, then camped for the night. (driving through Nebraska takes forever, and doing it in the pouring rain didn't help:) )
Sunday, day 2, we drove through a bunch of states and stopped near Chicago to get dinner with our other great friends that had just moved there. I saw my first firefly! We stayed that night in a hotel in middle of nowhere Ohio.
...the only real welcome sign we could find was over a bridge in the middle of the freeway... haha
World's Largest Truckstop! in Iowa. It was seriously huge.
We had to run across a huge field to get this one:)
That pole was directly in front of the sign... why?? so funny!
Not exactly on the way, but it was only about 5 miles out of the way, so we had to!!
I think it was almost 2am in this photo. the small bit of light is from our car headlights ha.
(This pic is actually from the next day.)
On Tuesday, we moved stuff into the Merrill's new house and then explored their gorgeous new little town, including Joseph Smith's birthplace, before heading to the airport in New Hampshire for our flight back home! It was a short, but fun trip across the country. And if we count the drive from Utah to Seattle in June, we've driven basically coast to coast this summer! :)
