Here's a map, showing our route. What it doesn't show are the two forays we made, while staying in Iowa, across the borders into Wisconsin and Illinois. So our seven states were: Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and Arkansas. I had been through Wisconsin and Kansas before, when I took a long road trip, as a youngster, with our friends, Liz and Louise. For Dan, though, it was his first time to see every one of these states (except Texas, of course).
I'll be posting more pictures and narrative about our big adventure, as soon as I can sort through the 400-plus photos I brought home
