Well, I'm off to the fried-buffet wildlands of Wisconsin... wish me luck. The Anderson Center has been very luxurious & I'm sure the budget motels I'm headed for can only suffer from the contrast. But I'm looking forward to meeting up with friends along the way, & also friends' parents, notably the vintage-car-collecting dad of the illustrious Michele K-Tel. (Hey, a girl can only look at so many Chinese restaurants in a row without relief of some kind. Can I help it if I have a weakness for old-school autos?)

I'll blog along the way if I can!
