Day 12: Monday, August 12, 2002
Since we couldn't buy fireworks in neither CA nor MA, we decided to buy some in Wisconsin!
Monday was a long day of driving from Minnesota, through Wisconson, into Illinois.
Here, we're crossing Mark Twain's legendary Mississippi River.
We ran into a huge traffic jam, which set us back a good hour or two.
We ran into another huge storm, and this time Johannes was driving, so I tried to take some lightning photos. I was ecstatic when I got this one...
Throughout the road trip, one of our favorite roadside stops was Cracker Barrel, where we could play games and eat good southern cooking.
It also had a purchase and return policy for books on CD, which de facto meant that you could borrow a CD book for $3. So we got a mystery murder to listen to on the road.
