Fields Trip
May 19-24, 2003

This roadtrip took me throughout the midwest as I saw wheat fields, corn fields, and the Field of Dreams, hence the name "Fields Trip." The trip was scheduled for Spring Break 2003, but because the Delaware Trip came up and I took the opportunity to have the greatest roadtrip so far, I delayed this trip to May 2003, the week after my spring semester of college ended. This trip gave me the opportunity to spend a little time with family who I rarely see, and a chance to get a lot of Michigan pictures. The trip was originally slated to take 4 days but was extended to six days so I can visit relatives in the Grand Rapids and Detroit areas. At a distance of over 2,700 miles, this roadtrip was over 1,000 miles longer than the roadtrips in 2002 were, yet this was the shortest major roadtrip I did all summer! This was also the first major roadtrip in the new official car of OKRoads.com!
