Amazing Journeys: Chicago (Part 1)

Chicago was the second stop on our AMAZING Journey series of road trips in the Mighty Ford Flex. Why Mighty? Because we left Detroit in a light snow storm, and by the time we hit Indiana we were in a BLIZZARD, and completely snow blinded. It was actually pretty stressful. On top of the weather one of our crew lives in Florida and was COMPLETELY bugging out in the back seat! LOL! We still love you DB.

After a moment of clarity, we pulled over gathered our wits, scraped the windows, and successfully pushed through the night to the Windy City.
