We completed part one of our 19-month trip on Friday, October 30: The Great Trip on the Great Lakes. We started in Chicago and lapped every lake. After 136 days, 86 hotels, 13,000 miles and 4 new tires, we arrived back in the Windy City to celebrate and relax for 4 nights. The weather was glorious and we moved right in: early morning jogs along the lake, visits to Navy Pier, the Hancock Tower, shopping, dinner at Smith and Wolensky's, Navy Pier, Rodity in Greek Town, drinks at the Palmer House, and finally Shaw's Crab House.
Today we begin part two: Going South for the Winter.
