where in the world are jess & a.?

we left new york on friday, and after five days, have finally made it to the great state of wisconsin.  trying to stay true to the epic road trip title, we're keeping our days relatively short, and stopping to see the sights and family along the way. 

we spent two days in michigan visiting with my grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousin.  after our stay, we headed north to the upper peninsula (or u.p.) and camped in brimley state park, right off lake superior.  this stay officially marked us visiting each great lake.  after waking up to rain, we quickly packed, forewent our run on the beach (bummer), and hit the road for wisconsin.

we still have a long way to go, but i wanted to share some of the sights along the way.
as you can see, there's been quite a bit of rain along the way.
and driving in the rain all the while learning to tow a trailer has definitely made this trek a true adventure.
once in michigan, we caught up, explored the colors, watched some very important football games, attended our first potastat (more of this to come) & explored our family history.
once settled for the night at our campsite, we ran to the store for some dinner necessities and also found a bit of local smoked white fish.  once back, we made a nice fireside dinner (complete with sticky rice and a local white wine.
with the exception of the weather, so far, everything's gone swimmingly.  for the next couple days, i'm going to be without wi-fi, but i'll do my best to catch you up once we're back in civilization.

on another note, all photos were taken with my iphone; proof that while it's easier & more convenient, i need to rely on our canon a bit more.  agreed?

  1. Great post Jess!!! I am in LOVE with the Fall colors and it looks like y'all have done a lot in so far. I have made up my mind, We NEED to take a trip back East for Fall one of these years. I would like to say next year, but I am not sure if Mr. Ramsey will approve. Thank you for the update, I sure did enjoy it! Muah xoxoxo
