The history books record that Madison, just over an hour west of Milwaukee, was little more than a wooded, mosquito-infested swamp when it was selected to be the political nucleus of the Wisconsin Territory in 1836. Today this stimulating, youthful metropolis is one of the most beautifully set cities in the US, with a handful of diverting museums, great restaurants, and a student-fueled nightlife scene.

The movers showed up at about 8:30am and finished packing our belongings. Maddie seemed to be fasinated by all the taping, wrapping and moving. She joined in as much as she could. Then at around 2pm everything was loaded and we said good bye to Crystal Towers. After a quick stop for lunch, we were on the road. At the time of departure, it was 75 degrees in DC, a record high. Today we passed through Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Maddie had a hard time sleeping after all the excitement so we were all happy to see our hotel just outside of Pittsburgh.
