The photo in the header is an (admittedly bad) shot I took of some of the wind farms that are ubiquitous to Interstate 80 as you drive through Iowa.
I spent some of my August driving my sister from Virginia to California in a van loaded up with all her worldly possessions. It’s a long way from Virginia to California, in case you’re wondering.
We spent four very, very long days making the drive, so we didn’t have time for many stops or detours, but Iowa actually ended up featuring the bulk of those stops that weren’t directly related to gas, bathrooms, or meals. (And because we grew up with my dad’s roadtrip mantra drilled into our heads, those three things all usually took place at the same time. There was none of this stopping if the car didn’t need gassing up.)
Fun fact: when you spend most of your day driving West into the sun, you can get a sunburn on your face through the windshield. Ask me how I know.
