This morning we checked out of our motel in Kane County, Illinois and headed to Wisconsin. The drive to Wisconsin was a difficult obstacle course as we battled the rain, tolls, road construction, and lane closures.

When we arrived in Wisconsin, we planned to make a brief detour to downtown Madison to see the state house. Unfortunately, heavy rain forced us to abandon that plan and we headed directly to our motel in Appleton, Wisconsin.

We checked in at our Appleton motel at 2 PM and settled in for several hours of rest before heading to an evening ballgame.
