My husband and I hit the road today, one day earlier than we planned. We're on our way to the Federation of Genealogical Socities Conference in Springfield, IL to be held Sept. 7-10. He got the "itch" to get down the road on a Sunday afternoon instead of Monday morning when lots of commuters are heading for work.
We live in Southern California so each morning that big, bright sun will be hitting us square in the face until it gets higher in the sky. That's what sunglasses are for. We're planning on stopping at various places as we head East. A couple of the spots are the Presidential Libraries of Eisenhower and Truman. We've been to the Reagan and Nixon libraries in California. They are truly inspirational and worth the visit.
Once we get to Springfield and check-in to our hotel, I'll have to go over to the convention center for a volunteer orientation. I signed up to be a room monitor for several session. I'm really looking forward to the whole experience.
Tomorrow's road miles will bring me closer to my goal.
