They're Coming Already, Naperville IL and A Doctor's Appointment

Rantoul, IL.

61 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Clear in the morning, then partly cloudy. High of 86F. Winds less than 5 mph.

Haven't posted because there really hasn't been anything of importance to post about. Oh, Jim and Linda have been doing the normal things like going to the store, going out to eat, bringing Chinese food back here to eat, and Jim had cooked a couple of times on the grill, (brats and hamburgers).

The CG was pretty busy this last weekend. There were lots of kids and I think it was because for many, it will be one of the last weekends that they have before schools open this year.

Yesterday some of the people who are going to the Farm Show started coming into the park already. In fact there are already 2 RVs parked on a site near us and there are 2 RVs in the dry camping area along the side street of the park. Then, there's the flatbed trailer that had a 50's vintage grain truck on it, that came through the park yesterday afternoon. and a couple of other trailers already parked in the CG at various sites.

The Farm Show starts on Thursday so by Wednesday, I expect the CG to be full of RVs. Many of the RVers will bring golf carts and ATVs to use to go over to the show with. There will be miscellaneous trailers that were used to bring the golf carts and ATVs as well as equipment, (farm tractors, planters, plows pickers and other farm related items), parked at the back of some of the sites.

I don't know if you've had a chance to look at the Half Century of Progress Farm Show web site, but if you're at all interested in farming and especially older equipment, take a look at the site. The photos that are scrolling across the top of the screen are typical of the activities that they'll have, and there's more photos to be seen in the Gallery section.

Tomorrow morning, Jim and Linda will be taking CLT and heading up to Naperville, IL. to see Linda's sister, Nancy and her son David.  They'll be leaving early because it's around 125 miles up there, they'll want to spend some time visiting, and then they'll drive the 125 miles back here, making it a pretty long day. Besides the distance, once they get North of I-80, the traffic will probably be really heavy, and you can never be sure of how long it will take.

Wednesday morning, Linda has an appointment to see her doctor in Fisher, IL. (about 13 miles from here). She has to have blood drawn, so she won't be able to eat breakfast before they go. That'll mean that they'll probably go to the Village Garden Restaurant in Fisher when she's done with her appointment. Then, they'll come back here and watch all the RVs come into the CG. ;-)

Did you know that today is "Black Cow" Root Beer Float Day?
