Many thanks to Pat Ioannacci for sending me her pictures.  The passengers always get lots of shots that I don't.

Our last rest stop en route home.

Typical traffic on I-80/94 on a Friday night.  Although it looked like we could be held up for quite a while, Paul breezed right through it with only maybe a 10 minute delay.
