Ok, if you've ever lived in the midwest, you already know. If you have not lived here, I'm going to tell you something terrible....... They salt the roads here in the winter. Of course, salt is a good thing to keep the roads cleared, but it's not good for your vehicle. We've been driving the Element, since it's our "winter" rig. Well, there is salt ALL OVER EVERY ROAD. If you drive, salt slings up on your vehicle. Eww. It's kind of hard to tell, but the salt is almost level with the door handles!
Thank goodness there are plenty of carwashes here. We got the ultimate wash with the pretty foamy stuff! :) You drive into this "garage" and both ends are closed and it's warm inside. TJ and I laid our seats all the way back and watched the water spray through the sunroof in back. Ah, the fun things to do in Sturgeon Bay! :)
