We have had a busy start to our upper midwest road trip.
Our journey started with a 4 hour delay in our layover in Denver. Thankfully, it is a nice airport.
We arrive in Grand Rapids and got straight to our hotel and collapsed.
This morning started out with blue skies, dotted with puffy white clouds and a lot of wind.
The hotel shuttle took us to the airport to get our rental car and the driver asked us where we were from. We said Arizona and he got very excited. It turns out that he and his wife are planning on retiring in a few years and want to live in Chandler. So, he was happy to find people who actually knew about the area. He asked us if we would send him a copy of the local paper and told us to use his tip for the postage.
As we do on every road trip, as soon as we get the rental car, we head to the store to get some snacks and supplies.
