8/28/09 - Burr Oak, MI - It rained all morning yesterday so we took the day off.
Today, I hitched up in the rain and took the lads south. The first couple hours went all right, then there was a little excitement. When we were going by an irrigation well, Bill thought the colored piping was moderately scary. He jumped a little to the side, but the driving lines were a little wet and I lost one. We ended up taking a spin down the ditch. Fortunately, it wasnít too deep, so no harm done. Well, no harm to the wagon, but it sure made a mess inside. I pulled in front of a barn to clean up the mess. I guess the wagon needed a good cleaning anyway! I would have taken a picture, but the camera was at the bottom of the pile.
The rest of the day of pretty uneventful. Tonight weíre camped at Jorgeís bar on US-12. Itís been quite a while since Iíve been able to camp at a bar and Iím looking forward to being a normal human being on a Friday evening. And If I have one too many, I donít have to worry about having to jump into a car.
Tomorrow, we should be crossing the state line back into Indiana. Iíve had a pretty good time in Michigan (oh yeah, one night to go!)
