So this is the continuing saga of my virtual cross country journey by foot and by bike. This week I started off outside Lagrange Indiana heading west toward Illinois. I didn't quite make it there but I did see some fun and some freaky things along the way. Wanna see?
So not too long after leaving Lagrange, I passed through Elkhart Indiana. And of course no trip to Elkhart would be complete without stopping by the RV museum. I have to tell you that wandering through all those RV displays really made me with I had 4 wheels instead of 2 to get my across country. Although many of the RV's were very cramped I bet they're a lot easier on my butt than my bicycle seat!
On my way out of Elkhart I passed the Paul Bunyan Muffler Man and old Paul was kind enough to give me a wave as I passed by....
A little further down the road and I was in South end Indiana. Home of that classic movie Breaking Away. As I thought about the movie and seeing as how I was already on a bike, I decided to take a lap around that race track. Home of the annual Little 500. And so I did. And don't you know I raised my arms in victoryas I crossed that imaginary tape, beating all the odds to reach my goal.
Once done patting myself on the back for my solo vitory against imaginary opponents, I pointed my nose westward again and kept going. Going that is until I got to La Porte. There I stopped at the La Porte Historical Society where I stopped off to view the Belle "Husband Killer" Gunness Exhibit. Belle, it turns out was quite the black widow, bumping off several husbands and many others who came poking around in her business.
All in all I traveled just over 100 miles this week and am currently a bit down the road from Gary Indiana and after that Illinois...
Dear Spark Friends --
Greetings from Indiana. The postcard is the main drag in LaPorte Indiana. It's been a week of ups and downs but thanks to your continued support and encouragement I've made it this far and have every intention of continuing on my road. So friends, this postcard's for you!
Cheers, Tory (SafariBabe)
