The move… 1,025 miles – Day 1!

After doing some upkeep on the car, finding an apartment, and stuffing “the essentials” into my little car, we were off on our cross country drive to the North. Google Maps took us staight through the middle of the US. If we’d gone in a straight line, I’m almost sure we would have driven the length on the country North to South.

It was a two-day adventure in which we saw a lot of open land (Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Wisconsin). We also had the chance to spend some quality time together cramped inside my car with the back seat and trunk packed full.

View from the front of the back seat. There was no view out the back window. {Is that legal?}

The trunk {It closed. I promise}

Poor Eric was up working until 3 a.m. the night before and slept the first half of the trip. {see how little space there was}

Oklahoma! Where the wind goes sweeping ‘cross the prairies.

Took a little detour and had lunch in Stillwater {great food and worth the extra 20 min each way}

Kansas – The Land of Oz

Had BBQ in KC before we called it a night. My friend reccomded the place and it was not a secret to the locals {the line was out the door}.

Men’s Health Magazine named it one of the top ten places to eat before you die. {Bucket List – Check}.

It was well worth the wait 🙂

With all this in Day 1, Eric and I were beat. It was so great to have friends to stay with and catch up on life with Eric and Brittnea Adcock. Now we know that Southwest flies a few flights between Milwaukee and KC. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a picture with them, but really enjoyed seeing them again.
