On our great cross country journey of 2008 we drove from Monterey, CA to Washington, DC, and we spent our final night of the trip in East Lansing, Michigan. While I wanted to see the Ohio State - Michigan State football game the next day, tickets were very expensive, and we'd have to give up a whole day of traveling, so we opted for the UMass-Lowell vs Michigan State hockey game instead. Nothing like seeing the defending national champs play!

We stayed at the Quality Inn about a mile or two from campus, and we took taxis both ways. Before the game we wandered around campus a little, looking at the landmarks, the sports facilities, and some nature, before watching State beat UMass-Lowell 2-1 in a great game, with all three goals scored in front of us and in a quick, five-minute burst.

The next day we got up and were on the road out of the state of Michigan in an hour or so.
