Well, today was pretty... good? interesting? both? yes. As I posted earlier, we ate at Wishbone in Chicago, and it turned out to be pretty darn good. We did have some interesting folks seated next to us... let's just say we know all the details about food network plans in the next while, and we witnessed somebody putting lottts of sugar in their cheese grits. I mean, I can totally understand sugar in plain grits, but sugar in cheese grits... is that weird to anyone else?
So, it turns out that there is a Ray's MTB in Milwaukee too! And we went there. It was different than the Cleveland one, but still super fun. Then guessed what happened?! No, not that. Ben broke his rear derailleur... damnit. Yepp, like completely broken. On day... yeah, day 3. He is not a happy camper. He says it isn't his fault and that I'm making him feel guilty. It wasn't his fault, but it still stinks. He had to ride a funny rental park bike after that... I'll post a picture of him being sad with it tomorrow.
Well, we didn't last much longer at Ray's after that, so we hit the road. We stopped to have some dinner (cheese curds for an appetizer, apparently a Wisconsin fave), drove on for a little while, and now we are in the middle of nowhere. Seriously, if we disappear, come looking in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin. No, no, no, don't actually worry. We're camping in the car again tonight, but this time we're at an actual campsite. It just happens to be miles from a main road and completely deserted other than us.
Tomorrow we'll have a pretty good chunk of driving to get through, but then we'll be catching up with and hanging out with some family in Minnesota. I'll keep you posted!
