Day one (January 18th) on my journey wasn’t too far down the road, I made it to Michigan City, IN. After staying with my pal Lora (see her birds) I figured out pretty quickly that I still had brought too much with me and took the opportunity to lighten my load further. I finally got going in the afternoon on the 19th headed to Bloomington, IN.
My timing seems to be quite good, as I made it into Bloomington in time to crash a LUPEC chapter meeting at my girl Sara’s place. And for those ill-informed, as I was before i arrived, LUPEC is the Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails. I know this, when Sara is involved my taste buds are happy. That smart lady knows how to step up a beverage, juicing beets, celery, and ginger for a choice of flavored ice cubes, pure genius!
