On Saturday past, I headed west.
Iowa was playing Michigan and I managed to find the game on the radio about 15 minutes after it started. I knew that I needed to stop somewhere to get out and walk around. I would need gas, too, but it was very important to stretch my legs. Half-time arrived when I got to Clinton, Iowa. It was the perfect time to stop and get lunch.
Yesterday, I returned.
The day was perfect for driving. It had been really windy on Saturday. Yesterday was calm and clear. I left at noon and stopped to get gas in Maquoketa. I stopped again in Savanna to get food. At about an hour away from home, my right knee was telling me it was time to get to where I was supposed to go.
I love driving. I like the travel. I like to view the land, to see what there is to see. Driving to Iowa is probably about the limit right now, however. Until this whole knee thing clears up, it's just too painful to drive for longer periods of time, even with stops to get out and walk around, hobble is more like it.
So, I went there and came back again. It was a great weekend.
