Road Trip: Day 1

Miles: 550
States: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin
Times I heard "I want to get out": over 100
Interesting sites: none (there's a reason people don't go on holiday to the Midwest, unless they have a thing for corn fields)
We stayed overnight at the Super Motel 8 in Janesville, WI. Overall a good day and we got a big chunk of milage done. Our Jack finally snapped about 7pm. I had told him a dozen times on the journey that we were not going home but were instead going on a vacation. As we pulled into Janesville and he was screaming and waving his cushion around his head, I said "Jack be quiet!" and he yelled back "NO! I am on my holidays!"
Today we tackle Wisconsin and Minnesota ...
