Welcome to Indiana... I no long hate this state!
After a couple of hours devoted to figuring out what to do about a rental car, since we were having so many problems, we left the Allendale area around 11:30 a.m. EST in a 2009 Chevy HRR LT (bright red). We set out on our way to the next destination, Denver, with high hopes for good weather. We had sun through Michigan then hit the rain in Southern Illinois and Missouri. We hit rush hour in Kansas City, where it was 70 and humid, then eventually got out of the urban area and went onward through the rather dull state of Kansas. Things mellowed out and we began to get sleepy late in Kansas so we slid open the moon roof and blasted some music! Had a brief nap at the Colorado welcome center before continuing on to Denver.

Coffee Time!

We may have looked like crazy people, but we were in need of some good coffee... so we set up shop in the rest area somewhere in Kansas and filled our travel mugs!

I was a big disappointed that we were not entering in the daylight, because I really wanted this sign to turn out :(
