Copyright 2015, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

We left SE Michigan in the first part of November 2014.  Unless otherwise stated each map represents a one day drive.  Sometimes we string together 3 or 4 days in a row of hard driving, usually not.  Sometimes we spend a day, sometimes a month in one spot.  A few maps represent a day trip, where we do not drag Tana along, I try to remember to tell you which day trips do NOT include Tana.
