Day 8: M2M: Good-bye to Michigan

Today, I must have been in charge because we got to go antiquing in Traverse City while the guys checked out a golf course and the resort town of Elk Rapids. I found a few goodies , including one special mah-jongg item. I also took a photo of the snow depth in 1996-7, which will tell all why, lovely as it is in the summer, we do not live in Michigan.

The on-the-road quest has been for fabled Michigan tomatoes. We have stopped at several roadside stands in search of such and have come up empty handed each time. Finally, we struck gold and have two plastic bags full from an Amish farmer.

We have a new side trip, destination the Maker's Mark distillery near Bardstown, KY. Tomorrow we hope to traverse the length of Indiana as we are near Elkhart tonight, and make it in time for the final tour.

ETA home is Thursday, early afternoon. We've already racked up over 2000 miles and have made a hobby of viewing all the RVs in the campground for the next adventure.

I plan to do a best-of at the end of the trip.
