Vacation 2016 ~ Day 6 On The Way To Chicago

Day Six of our vacation was basically just driving to Chicago to see our second game of the Cubs playing at Wrigley Field (Day 7).  We joked around about going to Avery's Auto Salvage since we would be driving by Manitowoc.  I think our friends and family thought we were just joking but we actually did it.  (For those who have seen Netflix "Making A Murderer" will know what we are talking about.)  Many of my co-workers were not looking forward for me being gone for two weeks from work.  They hate it when I am gone.  One acted a little concerned when he heard me joke around about going to check out the salvage yard.  He asked me if I was serious driving there in our Rav4.  I just told him it was the wrong color.  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen my little video I created for Luke about if I do not make it back, he knows where to look for me.   To the family of the woman who was murdered, I am sorry for your loss.  My joke was more of the horrible police work Manitowoc did.
As soon as we saw the city's sign I posted a picture of it.  We ended up finding the salvage yard.  They have their own road named after them.
Once we turned onto their road we chickened out and did not want to drive all the way down to the salvage yard.

I did get out of the car and zoomed in and took a picture of their homes.  While I was doing this a truck pulled onto the road, it was either one of the sisters or his girlfriend and boy did she scowl at me.  I quickly hopped back into the car and we cracked up laughing.  We were not the only car on the road taking pictures.  I am sure they get this all the time, what did they expect by making the movie.  We ended up eating lunch in Manitowoc and was able to drive through without any police sighting at all.

Once in Chicago, we checked in and decided to rest and watch the Cubs game on television in a very comfortable bed in a beautiful room.  I have no clue why I did not take any pictures of our hotel.

Our final day of actually doing anything you can read about with my first post...Go Cubbies Go!   Day 8 was packing up with a stop in Davenport to pick up a family member's truck to borrow to move children the very next two days on our vacation.
