In a surprising turn of events, my much anticipated solo trip across the United States got a surprise partner- yesterday my mother said that she would come with me.

Not surprising was the fact that we started out late today. It was almost noon by the time we were leaving the state of Maine. (Before we could leave, the cats needed to be taken care of.) But that was alright because today was a beautiful day for driving. Not too hot, not too sunny, and barely any rain. We drove all afternoon and arrived in Syracuse just in time for dinner.

The lack of excitement gave me a chance to lay out the time line for the trip:
I also had the chance to plan out tomorrow afternoon. We'll stretch our legs in Erie, Pennsylvania right along- you guessed it- Lake Erie. We're going to take a few hours to explore Presque Isle State Park. Hopefully we'll be there before noon!
