Day 2: Defiance OH > Hixton WI

Hello from the great state of Wisconsin! We left Defiance at 7am and pointed the van West. We drove to Byan Ohio and got back on 80/90 toward Chicago. We stopped for gas again and I forget the keys and gas cap on top of the pump again. Lucky for me this time I figured out the loss in 5 min so no disasters this time. Shortly after that, we got on 80/90 and the PopUp came loose and shot up into the air. Kate was driving and got us off to the side of the road before things got bad. Everything was fine. We aren’t sure how that happened. I guess we must have engaged the latch at some point. We are being extra cautious with it now. Must have been quite a sight.

We had one special stop in Rockford IL. Kate was born there and spent the first 5 years of life in a house on Harlem BLVD. I’ve heard a lot about it so we stopped by to take some pictures. The women that bought the house from Kate’s parents in 1989 still lives there and she came out and talked to us for a while.

We found ourselves and the end of the day in Hixton Wisconsin at the Hixton KOA which was lovely! The owners where super nice and the grounds were lovely and clean.
