The Chicago Sun-Times is chronicling the journey to Monday's inauguration with the Frazier Family of Marquette Park, and blogging about it. Catch our first story in the series here.
Darkness sets in as we approach the turnpike, leaving Ohio and crossing into Pennsylvania. We're up in the mountains now, and it's too dark to see the most beautiful part of the journey, the spiraling, upward climb through wooded peaks. The Frazier family has broken out the sandwiches, bread, cold cuts, mayo.....Pamela was prepared. But OK, so if I have to watch Hunger Games again, I may have to jump off this bus. It was just a bit too much the first time I saw it. Cell battery officially dead. What, they don't last 12 hours when you're phoning, tweeting, blogging....Who knew?
