Minor side trip on the way: A couple days earlier my brother had emailed asking if I knew there was a "Labaree St." in Watertown WI.
I actually was aware of that, but hadn't thought about it for years.
Checking the map, I found that it was only about 30 miles off the route, so it was a no-brainer.
There it is! Less than a half mile long, but there's a C5 in one driveway!

While the eight (yes, 8) road tours came and went, we were set up (trying to keep from freezing) in the Registration Tent with NCM Board member Ivan Schrodt and staff member, Doug. Ivan shared his room with me!
