Finally, another trip to Shangri La. It seems the closer we get to the move the more impatient I become for visits. This trip was prompted by Shelly's birthday, which prompted the need for a new drivers license for her and new plates for our cars and trailers. This close to being up there full time, we decided to move everything over to the Michigan address. We also decided that this would be a good trip for hauling the camper up. There's just no time for camping right now, and we have a ton of room up north for storage.
I thought about titling this installment "Blown Away!" or "Was that a cow?!" About half way up the wind kicked in, and didn't let up for the remainder of the drive. Towing a rolling billboard in 30 mph winds, with gusts up to 45 mph, makes for a white knuckle ride that I'd just as soon never repeat. There were a few times that, had I not corrected, I'm pretty sure I would have lost it. Scary stuff!
In addition to the stop at the Secretary of State for the plates we made two other stops. One at a Lowes in Findlay to pick up a closet organizer, and one for dinner at the Know Good bar in Atlanta. After a drive like the one we were negotiating, the recuperative powers of pizza and beer cannot be minimized. Ham, pineapple and green olive pizza...mmmmm. I don't think the waitress's tastes ran to the exotic. She actually looked like she threw up in her mouth a little when we ordered. :)
We had a few things we planned to tackle this trip, with the primary project being the painting of the master bedroom closet and the installation of a closet organizer. Shelly tackled the painting, and we ganged up on the closet organizer.
