Good-bye to the house where Susan grew up.
Left: Three states, +400 miles and, most importantly, Chicago, behind us. Tired and happy in Oglesby, Illinois.
Right: Our truck, nicknamed "Cammy" (short for "camion"), reflected in a very shiny semi.
Central Iowa according to the Iowa Flood Information System the day we arrived. We narrowly missed a major storm!

Posing with "Cammy". She's big, she's bad, and she's a little rough around the edges, but she'll get us there!
We squeezed in a visit to my sister Jan in Hastings, Nebraska, including a fabulous dinner at the Odyssey.
Gettin' down in Funk, Nebraska.
OMG a great coffee shop in Colby, Kansas!
