    on way back went out to dessert with an old friend from Hudson OH I had not seen in several years.

    In each direction, drove >700 miles first day to have shorter drive and arrive by midday on 2nd.

    I probably could have driven straight through -  15 hours driving time, but then I would have been useless.

      Grinnell, and grad school in Iowa City. My family (and my husband's family) lived in VA. We did that trip in ONE HAUL (about 24 hours flat) over and over and over...We finally hung up the towel (and started paying for a motel room) the time we crossed the Iowa border heading back home and my husband started hallucinating: "Big birds! BIG BLACK BIRDS flying at the car!"  :-D
