Just so close...

We're in Necedah and are enjoying 60 degrees temps!  We just checked into the Necedah Motel,  recommended by Cary at Camp-inn.  Clean and simple,  it's the perfect place.

Two days of travel after Pittsburgh brought us to S. Bend,  Indiana where we stayed last night.  We traveled about 700 miles yesterday and today.  Mostly we drove interstates and had a lot of tolls. Again, both days had us cruising by lots of farms, with the classic red or white barns and brick farm houses. Beautiful!

With all of the open space, we were looking for American kestrels, but saw none.  We did see many red-tailed hawks and a couple of hundred or so turkey vultures.  Weather has been sunny with the exception of thick fog as we headed out west from S. Bend this morning.

Entering Wisconsin was exciting for us and it was made even better by being offered free Jelly Belly beans at the welcome center!  One of my weaknesses!

Fuel mpg at 21 today; yesterday we had strong headwinds and only got about 17.  Gas prices are around $2.40/gallon.

Doubt we will sleep much tonight.  Our appointment is at around 9:30am.  We are just so excited and I know we will have much to report tomorrow!
