2004 is USA-time again !

Hi all,

We are visiting the USA from july 5th till aug 11th.

We fly to CA first (San Francisco - Yosemite - Sequoia - L.A).
Then we fly (back) to Chicago, and make the tour around lake Michigan,
then drive all the way to Ash Grove,MO (arriving there around july 23).

There we will stay for another 2 weeks, then stay a couple of days
in St.Louis and finally drive back to Chicago for the flight home.

Here is the intended route for California :

And this will be our trip around Lake Michigan and along Route 66,
not sure if we will survive all this :-)
