State 46 in the record books...

With the help of good friend, Josh Rogers, I was able to cross the 46th state off my list, Michigan.

We left Chicago around 7, got to New Buffalo (below is the "welcome to Michigan" sign as we drove by at 80 mph) and walked into Lake Michigan.

Chicago, on the other side, was in the midst of a massive storm which we witnessed, lighting and all, a powerful, awe-inspiring moment.

As the storm clouds moved in rapidly, we turned and headed for the safety of Jimmy's Bar, had a beer and were back at home by midnight.

A great night, worth of "Remember (the) Maine..." and a Carpe Diem moment.

Hereafter, I will refer to this event as "Mishigas in Michigan."
