DAIRIES & LAKES ROADTRIP
TBD

The first major roadtrip of the summer of 2004 will take me to the north-central part of the United States, as I see dairy farms and the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The Dairies & Lakes Roadtrip in early June will allow me to see another part of the country I have never seen. I will be in 12 states during this trip; four of those states I will be driving in for the first time (I have been to two of those, North & South Dakota, but have never been to the other two, Minnesota and Wisconsin).

I plan to clinch several interstates during this trip. The trip route is more north-south than east-west, so I can clinch as many north-south interstates as possible. I will clinch Interstate 29, Interstate 35, and Interstate 43 on this trip. I will also probably clinch Interstate 96 in Michigan, since I plan to spend a couple nights there with relatives.

Note: This trip has been postponed indefinitely due to circumstances beyond my control. Hopefully I will get to do a trip of this nature sometime in the future.
