Good decision...to go to my friend's place in Illinois five days before the Lori Foster Reader Writer Get Together.
Bad decision...to do the first 12 hours of a 15 hour drive in one shot. ow ow ow ow ow.
Now, being from Canada, interstates creep me out, and having to depend on my GPS is daunting...but i made it through the 12 hours of driving without any honking from folks behind or beside me.
I am now nine hours from ohio, but only 2.5 from chicago. whew. Driving is hard.
At least on the way home next week, I have divided my time more evenly. only 10 hours per shot. I think I might fly next year if I do the Gathering again.
