If you don't think we sang that song more than once while driving, well, you don't know how corny our sense of humor is... :)

Or the fact that Jonny kept blaring "When the Levee Breaks" by Zepplin as we rolled from Muenster to Chicago, etc....

And Fred, I had no clue when and where we were going to be except here there and gone.

Looks like a good time in an awesome (yet ugly) car. Good job mixing two passions without, you know, DUI'ing.  :P

If we'd had have one more day! We were pressed for time and on our last day were still too late to make our final stop!

The ruling on the field is Wisconsin seems to take an unconscionably long time to cross!

It depend how many giant muskies/cheese shops you want to see.
It depends where you go but it is about 4.5 hours to cross.

Ahh, yes, I should clarify that... I don't work for the FBI, but I do some work on efforts that have sent bad guys to the FBI for investigation.
