A Drive to Milwaukee

I hit the road once again today. This time I left home and from here there will be nothing familiar. Several family friends were able to come over this morning to wish me a safe and enjoyable year. It was a cold drizziling morning, but as I learned from my mom’s Romanian friend it means great beginnings. It was pretty sad to leave mom and dad. Their support means the world to me.
It was a rainy drive for most of US-41. As I got a little further south things started to dry up and the 294 mile trip to Anah and Dan’s went by pretty fast. I can already tell that I’m going to have more friends than I can count from this trip in a year from now. They welcomed me with a fantastic dinner and we relaxed the evening away and got to know each other as we get rested for a busy weekend around the city.
On my way down I saw something rather bazaar. I had never seen anything like it. Unfortunately I was on the freeway and didn’t have a place to pull over for a photo. There were twenty to thirty cows lined up in a nearly perfect row, all facing the same direction and standing still. It was like they were waiting in line at the Secretary of State’s office or something. One cow was a few feet in front of the rest and they were seperated by a billboard. The front cow was lined up perfectly to walk under the billboard as if they were all waiting their turn for something. Humans can’t wait in line so perfectly as these cows were. So I chuckled and drove on.
While talking with Anah and Dan I’ve already learned a lot about Milwaukee, which I will elaborate on as I see some of these places in the next few days. They are the first true host of the trip and I can see that it’s going to be a great year. -xo
