it was nice to have the boys here for the night at Casa Momo--they are now on their way to Indiana--in search of a sundial made out of a lady's leg.

Day 1 -

Saturday June 27th
Northern Minnesota to Milwauee, WI area
Departing time - 6:45am
Arrival time - 3:30pm


We set out on our road trip at 6:45am. We didn't have too many places to visit along the way because we wanted to get to the Milwaukee area in time to

go see KISS in concert! We did stop at a few attractions along the way including -

A giant orange moose


A giant mouse with some cheese


A giant elephant with glasses


A giant cow


We stayed with Oranjkaat and her hubby the first nite. We got there early enough to get a bite to eat and so I could change for the KISS show.

Oranjkaat and her hubby ROCK!

Oranjkaat, me and BakedAlaska

The KISS show ROCKED! It was the best show I've been to. They played a lot of their older obscure tunes that I had never heard them play live. Gene

and Paul can still put on a great show and Eric and Tommy are - in some ways - better than Ace and Peter were the last time I saw them.

Janky gettin' excited! The Who song "Won't Get Fooled Again" was playing and they lowered the infamous KISS kurtain - the show is about to begin!

Gene during his solo


Gene after his solo - he's standing on his platform in the lighting truss above the stage


KISS played at the annual Summerfest held in Milwaukee, WI. I had several people come up to me before and after the show asking if they could take pics of me and my boots - I felt like a rock star, something I could easily get used to!

Day 2
Sunday June 28th
Milwaukee area to Cleveland, OH area
Departing time - 11:30am
Arrival time - 10:30pm


We didn't make many stops on this day - mainly just stops to eat and smoke breaks for me. We ended up starting a bit late on this day which meant that the planned Cleveland GTG was cancelled - we're really sorry about that! Baked did mention that this might be the last road trip for his truck - the drivers side mirror fell off while we were driving towards Chicagao. It kinda surprised us cuz we thought the passengers side mirror would be the one to fall off since it is the one that shakes quite a bit while driving. The rear view mirror had fallen on a couple of previous road trips - but stayed on during this one. Also, around the Chicago area the GPS had us take a detour that brought us thru Chicago - with the high temps and the stop and go traffic in Chicago the truck was getting close to overheating. We ended up pulling in a parking lot to let the truck cool down.

One stop that we did make was the Jack Benny statue in Waukegan Illinois


The Jack Benny statues faces the Genesee theater


We finally made it to Tfacey's near Cleveland, OH around 10:30pm - a few hours behind schedule. We were able to chat with Tfacey and her hubby for a bit - and we checked out her gorgeous back yard! We hope to come back to Tfacey's someday to party in her back yard. Tfacey and her hubby ROCK!

My favorite spot in Buffalo was at the Anchor Bar where we met the AWESOME IronButterfly and her hubby. We had what one traditionally has while at the Anchor Bar - an order of wings and the infamous roast beef on Weck. IronButterfly and her hubby ROCK!

A grave with a window in it - not much to see in the window, it was very dark and it has moisture on the inside
