We’re a week in.  Seven days ago we woke up in Chicago, loaded everything into our van, and headed north to Wisconsin.  Now we’re in Upstate New York for a wedding.  Later today, we’ll have spiedies, a Binghamton specialty (FYI: don’t spell them “speedy” — “the term “spiedie” comes from the Italian spiedo meaning spit or spiedini referring to cubes or balls of meat cooked on a skewer“).  I can’t wait — maybe we’ll get them from breakfast.

Next week, we’ll finish tricking out our van with a platform bed and storage.  We already cleared out the seats, center console, and candy crumbs.  Without the crumbs and with a new cabin air filter, Rocky is smelling pretty sweet.

This week we learned:
