It’s been a while, so if anyone needs a refresher, Parts 1, 2, and 3 are HERE, HERE, and HERE. BUT . . . since it’s a rare reader indeed who follows links, a quick recap:
- Original plan: Chicago, north through Wisconsin, across Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, down to the Lower Peninsula, through Indiana, and home.
- Modification 1: North to the Lower Peninsula, up to the Upper Peninsula, back down to visit friends, down through Indiana, and home.
- Modification 2: 1,909 miles from home to as far North as Whitefish Point in the U. P. and back home in 102 hours.
This post, then, is about September 19th, 2022.
Them who read the previous posts know today’s travels start Traverse City. It would end nearly 385 miles later in Michigan City, which, oddly enough, is in Indiana.
We’d originally planned a stopover at the Air Zoo, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but with most of the trip already modified beyond recognition, we decided to get home as fast as possible. The 20th of September would see us getting home in the early afternoon, thus — as the title says — completing the 1,909 mile trip in 102 hours.
For some reason, some of the photos are loading slowly, and I don’t know if that’s WP or SmugMug’s fault, but if I mention something and you don’t see it, try refreshing the screen. Like, for instance, the following map.
That’s the route, and what follows are the photos . . . by the way, as before, some of the gallery’s photos appear to be duplicates because after snapping a photo with the D7500, I often would bring out the Note 20 and capture the same scene.
