This morning we drove Charley to Eagle Creek State Park in Indianapolis where our niece, Kelsey, was rowing in the Big Ten Championships. We watched on excitedly as she rowed with the other ladies in her four [person boat] to take 2nd in her race; Wisconsin took 3rd overall. Then, with Dona along for the ride, we set out on our first real test – driving 180 miles back to Chicago. He handled well, but the ride was a bit bumpier and louder than we were expecting – we chose to blame it on the roads! We each took a turn driving to get a feel for both interstate driving and then city driving, and we’re happy to report we can each handle our ‘rig’ pretty well. We parked Charley at his summer home – the Storage Mart in Lombard, which is about 20 miles from our condo downtown. Now, our travels with Charley await us!
