I woke up in Fairmont, Minnesota, still 2 hours behind schedule. It was a slog of a day. Increasing traffic and still 80mph in many parts. I stopped for clay a few times but there was no easy access. Places were becoming more built up and it got harder, so no clay on Day 6. I did stop along the Mississippi river briefly, but no luck for clay. The highlight of the day was the Piggly Wiggly in Wisconsin. I described Wisconsin to my husband as a “mayonaisse salad based culture” because of the deli choices. That being said, my Aunt Em’s potato salad was heaven. I also got some chocolate cheese but have not tried it yet. I rolled into Chicago, white-knuckled, around 7:30. The sunset was making the brick buildings glow warm. I found myself in an unusually nice part of town for the night-The Riverwalk area, on the river, very near Lake Michigan. Thanks for that, Hotels.com. Still, not much to do here. The museum doesn’t open until 10:30 and I need to leave around then. This is the second time I’ve attempted to go to the SAIC Museum and missed it! I’ll come back some time, probably on a plane so I don’t have to drive in that mess again, and I will see that museum! I’m only 3 hours away from family time! Looking forward to that.
