I didn't even warn anyone that I was heading down to Indiana for my cousin's wedding. I'm back now, so posting shall resume.
Here's something I never knew before: There are no direct routes via expressway from my home in Michigan to Indianapolis. Yahoo maps suggested a lovely, roundabout route along Lake Michigan and through Gary, Indiana. (This time of year, "lovely" is sarcastic due to lake-effect snow.) Google maps suggested a much straighter inland route through Fort Wayne, which was unfortunately rendered impractical due to a stopover in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Baby's Daddy and I ended up driving a several hours down a divided highway complete with traffic lights and 35-mph speed zones. Not the best choice we ever made, but not the worst, either.
