need some trip ideas!

I will be flying out to Truckee the Thursday before Labor Day (9/1), staying there for 4 days, and leaving on Tuesday with Emma to drive back to the east coast! So far the itinerary is alittle vague, but I know we will be taking Interstate 80 to Vinton, Iowa where we will stay with Susu on Thursday (9/8) and in Chicago on Friday (9/9).  Then I guess we will get to Interstate 75 as quick as possible and get back down to Atlanta...hopefully late afternoon/early evening on Sunday.  The trip isn't the most direct route, but I'd really love to make it to Vinton, and we're excited about Chicago - it's looking something like this:

Thursday 9/1-Monday 9/5 - TRUCKEE TIME
Tuesday 9/6 - Truckee, CA > Salt Lake City, Utah
Wednesday 9/7 - Salt Lake City > Nebraska (somewhere near Sidney or North Platte)
Thursday 9/8 - Nebraska > Vinton, Iowa
Friday 9/9 - Vinton, Iowa > Chicago (hopefully get here early in the day - only about 4 hours from Vinton)
                    *splurge $60 on a kayak tour in Chicago - Click here to see the tour!                       
Saturday 9/10 - Somewhere between Chicago and Atlanta (maybe Louisville, KY)
Sunday 9/11 - Back in Atlanta

So there it is!  If anybody has suggestions for stops along the way, or things to do in Chicago, email me and let me know!

  1. I am so excited!!! You will be here the day before everyone gets back, so it will be pretty quiet and you won't get to meet Phil. But it will be awesome :)
