Traveling across the United State for the first time was an eye opener. We left Mount Vernon, Washington about ten or ten thirty Monday morning heading for DuPage IL, just outside of Chicago. My GPS claimed the trip was twenty-eight hundred miles, travel duration thirty-six hours. Three days to travel most of the way across America.  ‘The I 90 never stops’; we saw that sign over and over as we travelled, and it was true! There was construction all the way, but I don’t think the traffic flow stopped once. Washington; Idaho; Montana; ……. The sights went on forever. The road trip was described to me by a friend as a very long TV show, something new around every corner.  This was a working road trip, so we were in a hurry to get to our destination and not much time for fooling around. The northern states were stunning. Spokane, Washington; Butte, Montana; and Sundance, Wyoming. Then all the corn you can eat for miles. The I90 just keeps on going. We traveled through time and history. South Dakoda, Minnesota, the Mississippi River, the Missouri River, Wisconsin and Illinois. It was a spectacularly wonderful and very long four-day trip to the DuPage Children’s Museum in Naperville Ill. And then the work began: The Water Works install.
