It isn't hard to do, people. You decide on a Tuesday, call your friend, Google a halfway point -- and hop in your car Wednesday morning.
|Then, you stop at Casey's for some JAVA...|
|At the ATM for some cash...|
Of course, the most important element of this spontaneous adventure is that you need to have a friend you would enjoy spending a day with.
|My friend Becky and I met when we were 18 years old. And whenever we manage to get together, it's like we get to be those optimistic, free-spirited, fearless girls again...|
|Can you guess the town that is our half-way point?|
|That's right! DeKALB, Illinois. We love this town, and for the last four years, it has been "OUR town"|
|We met at the Goodwill store outside of town, then were headed to a park. It was a beautiful day...but we made a wrong turn...we thought this house looked interesting...|
|Maybe some kind of museum..??|
|There MUST be a story about this tower, eh? And the parking lot is FULL.|
|We started taking pictures even before we knew where we were, or what this place was about.|
|Even after we read the sign, we still had no clue...|
