Aside from obvious things like the landscape and different weather patterns, you notice a lot when you’re travelling the open road, if you’re paying attention. One of my favorite things to do is to drive through small towns, observing the people walking on the sidewalks, the children playing in the neighborhoods, and the farmers working in the hot sun. It’s fun to imagine what happened in their lives to lead them to settling in this small town, seemingly in the middle of nowhere USA with populations often under 1000, according to the the weathered highway signs.
We’ve stayed in Mantua, Ohio, Grand Haven, Michigan and Byron, Illinois since last week’s issue. You can read all about our adventures of taking our business and family on the road, driving 6400 miles in 46 days through 23 states, right here.
Next week? We’re goin’ home to Texas! I have to start brushing up on my accent so the kin folk will be able to understand me.
