So we made it to Michigan... Alive! Our Suburban has proved it self to be a trustworthy and highly reliable companion, so we're keeping it - we would have anyway... But it has actually been a pleasure to drive in, sleep in, eat in, watch movies in, this far. The trip from Jersey to Lowell, MI, took us 4 days. The drive it self is no more than 6 - 8 hours, but we've made a few stops on the way, a couple in PA, some in Ohio, and a whole lot in Michigan.
Saturday, the 4th, we to Michigan State University, and visited some familiar faces... That same night we went to a college party, on campus, and got our boogie on, the American way! We ended up sleeping 4 people in a college dorm-room that night, but it was mad fun! We stayed at MSU until the 6th, after a few hours of shopping and a two hour necessary stop at Wal-mart, the roads took us to a small, somewhat deserted camping site in Holland, west Michigan, where we spent one night... The next day, on the 7th, we were in Lowell...
Our next objective is Chi-town (Chicago, IL), which is about 4 hours from Lowell...
