Summer travel intensifies.

Remind me to pack my love of cornfields.

We've reserved a terribly inefficient SUV with lots of room and on July 3, we will set off for southern Wisconsin for Blockhead's wedding! Rather than fly out to either Madison or Milwaukee and have to rent a car anyway, we decided to make a weeklong road trip out of it. And my 15-year old two-door coupe is certainly not the comfortable way to do that, hence the rental car.

The wedding is on the 6th with a welcome dinner the day prior, so we only have to be there by dinnertime on the 5th, then will leave as soon as the 7th to return. There's a whole lot of Midwest in between here and there, and we've been researching things to do for a while now. There's a good chance we will visit the cities that have been work clients, including Rockford (where we may spend July 4th; very America!) and Peoria in IL. In WI we may also visit Taliesin or House on the Rock, but for now we're keeping the itinerary flexible.

Got any recommendations for traveling through Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, or Wisconsin? Let me know in the comments!

Exciting!! I went to college in Michigan so I should have checked out Wisconsin but unfortunately it didn't happen. I heard many good things about that state... not sure if this is up your alley, but I heard there is an actual cheesemaking center you can visit. For me, that sounds amazing and horrible at the same time haha... but what a story that would be. https://nationalhistoriccheesemakingcenter.org/plan-a-visit/

LOL, nice. That's not too far afield from the wedding, so if we need an extra activity I have it in mind. :)

Hmmm... driving along the Great Lakes is nice (I-90) if you can swing it. Get an EZ Pass if you don't have one (or just take the one from your car and add the rental car's plate to your EZ Pass account). I stopped at a great nanobrewery in a random western Indiana town but can't remember the name of it.

We will have an EZ Pass! As for I-90 it may be our route back, but on the way we will be farther south on and around I-70.

I don't have experience with I-70 that far east, unfortunately.
