Whew, what a whirlwind, the first half of October I was on the road - 6 Big Ten campuses in 8 days. First I went to
Check out this Harley! I think I need some sunglasses to keep glare and bugs out of my eyes, and a leather jacket to keep my fur from getting nappy and my bones in tact in case I crash. Maybe I should take a driving lesson. Oh, and insurance is a must, I wonder if Gieco is so easy a sheep can do it???
The next weekend, I got to go on a Mini Big Ten Road Trip. I went to FIVE schools in one weekend.
First I went to
The next day I went to
After the stadium, we went to Harry’s Chocolate Shop, it’s listed as the best grub at Purdue, according to the book Big Ten Country. No chocolate there, not even shakes, just a bar with burgers and pizza. What a misnomer.
The next day, Sunday, was the Chicago Marathon. I didn’t run it, but I watched part of it. While 10,000+ saps were running 26.2 miles I was exploring
Then I was going to look at the WIRED exhibition, but the sign outside said there were sheep at work. Since I do enough work during the week, I didn’t want to get confused as part of the help. I took some pictures, then high tailed it out of there.
After the marathon ended, we went to Northwestern. We couldn’t get in their stadium at all.
That made four stadiums in two days, but I wanted to get ONE more, so after the long car ride back, I went over to Kinnick.
I couldn’t get in the press box there either, but at last my Big Ten whirl-wind mini tour had ended.
