DAY 37: LAKE ZURICH, IL TO SHEBOYGAN, WI

We began day thirty-seven with a car wash for the I.D. 4 outside of Chicago, IL. We visited our sponsor, Harting of North America, in Elgin. Harting makes the connectors for the charging cables for the I.D. 4. We spoke to them about the tour and had a nice visit talking to them about our experience so far. Thank you so much Harting for the support. We then met with another of our sponsors, Volkswagen Credit, in Libertyville. We gave a short presentation about the car and our journey. Volkswagen Credit is a 100% daughter company with Volkswagen of America. Thank you for your support VW Credit. We continued north through Illinois and crossed the border into Wisconsin. We were welcomed by the nice wooden sign. A farmer had displayed some straw puppets by hoisting them up on an old rusty trailer. They were carrying bouquets as they smiled at anyone who passed by. Menomonee Falls VW had just been delivered two very nice white I.D. 4’s waiting for customers. A pimped up, blue car with huge rims and tires was spotted. We sometimes see these modified vehicles and it’s fun to compare them to those of the I.D. 4. A cricket practice went on and it was our first time seeing this, so far. Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams and had gained popularity among British related nations in the 19th century. The players hailed from India and Pakistan and were happy to let us take some photos. We made it to Milwaukee on the coast of Lake Michigan. There were people playing volleyball on the beach. Seeing so many people during this time was nice since a lot of the trip has consisted of driving through lightly-populated areas. There was a very nice building on top of a hill. A huge staircase leads up from the foliage into a lovely, very large brick building with a clay shingle roof. There are little Swan-shaped paddle-boats that customers can rent to trot around on the water. The skyline of Milwaukee looked fantastic near the lake. As the sun was setting, the I.D. 4 and the skyline around the water allowed us to get some great photos of the I.D. 4. At the end of our day, we made a stop at The Milwaukee Art Museum. The architecture of the building was very quadratic and it gave us a parallel look alongside the tail lights ID.4. The skyline lights looked amazing with the sunset and reflected off the blue colors of the I.D. 4.
