step on the gas and wipe that tear away

Once we left our house, we drove around the city to tie up loose ends. We signed our wills, added items to the safety deposit box (bye wedding rings), and picked up some international driver's licenses. We're on our way to Toronto (via Chicago) right now! We can't believe this is actually happening!



We left Winnipeg in the early evening and battled rain and construction on the highway to stop for the night in Fargo, ND (yeah!)



It's so exciting here:




We're going to go hop in the hotel pool tonight and take off early tomorrow morning to get out of here. 10 hours on the road tomorrow 'til Chicago!

  11. Congratulations on successfully skipping town in the middle of the night without doing any kind of goodbye get-together.

    I expected this, so I'm glad we got to see you briefly when we picked up the camera.

    Good luck.

  15. I've been reading your blog for a couple of months now. I am so excited to see you guys are on your way. Hopefully, on your way to Chicago, you check a place where all of the Chicagoans go to get a away for a weekend, Galena, IL. It's very cute and historical. Lots of little shops and such. I think you should be able to get there from I80. If that's out of your way and you're headed through Wisconsin, definitely check out Madison. It is the coolest city in the midwest if you're young and liberal. One amazing place around Madison, which you will probably see signs for in Wisconsin, is the House on Rocks. that is definitely worth checking out.
    Good luck with your travels! I look forward to taking notes for my trip.
