Rejoice tofu lovers! After riding through about 200 miles of Illinois through nothing but corn and soy bean fields, it looks like a bumper crop of each.
To our Texas followers, read it and weep. 74 degrees last night at 5:00p.m. This morning the temps were in the low 60's, jacket weather, todays high was in the low 80's.
Our destination today was Lincoln Trail State Park, however, we were there too early and it was a beautiful riding day so we continued on to Paris and a motel. We seem to be finding more excuses or opportunities for moteling it. However, tomorrow we intend to stay at Kick-a-poo State Park. We like the sound of it.
Last night we had a wonderful visit with The Brickers the parents of Jen of Jen and Nate. We have known of each other for years and it was great to put faces with names. We slept in their new camper,quit lovely with all the trains, bells and whistles. Neither of us had ever slept in one. They took us to dinner and fed us a great breakfast and sent us on our way. It was all great fun!
Sharon Bricker did our laundry. This is the third time we've done laundry, the first time we didn't have soap.
The only time we have used our swim suits is to do laundry so we could wash all of our clothes, because when we have had a motel with a pool we have gone in in our riding clothes. I figure that a little clorine might be good treatment for anything that we may be harboring in our clothing. We do wash our days clothes each night in case anyone is wondering how ripe we are. Now we are pretty fresh.
We started out our trip going under I-10 today we went under I-70. That gives us a real feeling of progress as we head north across the nation.
Need to get on with my evening in Paris.
