...dear lord. Driving 10 hours to get somewhere is ridiculous; 3 stops at rest stops, one slight detour to get lunch and around 700 miles later, we pulled into the parking garage at the Detroit Marriott around 8, 8:30, and man were we hungry. Unluckily for us, all the restaurants in the place were closed???!!!!? Oh well, looks like we are going to bed hungry.
On a related note...thank the maker for iPods, mine kept us busy for the whole trip giving us good tunes the whole way (though struggling with our radio transmitter was a pain in the butt).
