Day 10, Tuesday, July 8

We're back home - the only stop today was at a battlefield in Murfreesboro, Tennesseee. It was the Battle of Stones River and was a major victory for the Union and was a good visit and a free one for us.

So our trip covered over 2000 miles and had some of these highlights that we all agreed on:
Lambeau Field in Green Bay, our cheese store stop in Wisconsin that spontaneously changed into an hour long party, Chicken Man blue grass concert that we stumbled upon in Tennessee, Pee Wee and Jimmy's visit to a fireman water fight in the U.P., the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, the May 4 Kent State Memorial, and peaceful drives through America's farmlands.

We did pretty well with the good deeds. Our favorite ones were becoming church greeters at a church in Racine, Wisconsin, Danny's gift to a boy with cerebral palsy, and getting gas for a couple in a dangerous area in Indiana.
