Finalizing Plans and Laundry Day

Rantoul, IL

57 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy. Highs around 81°F. East wind to 5 MPH.

Jim's been working on finalizing a plan for our upcoming trip. Of course, it still depends on the 2 eye doctor visits that Linda will have this coming week, but since Linda hasn't been experiencing any discomfort, vision problems  or anything else with her eyes, we should be able to leave here on the 6th of October as planned. :-)

One thing that Jim has found is that, at this time of the year, (especially in the Smoky Mountain area of Tennessee and North Carolina), there are a lot of "leaf peepers" out and about. In fact after doing some research, he found that many of the campgrounds in that area are booked up already. So,  ,  ,  ,  ,  even though he and Linda don't like to be tied to a schedule, he did make a reservation at one RV Park.

Yesterday, Jim and Linda finally did the laundry!!! They left here a little before noon and by about 1:30 they were back from the laundromat with clean clothes! :-)  Being that the machines there are quite large, they were able to get it all done in 3 loads and then by using one very large dryer and one regular sized one, they were able to get it all washed and dried fairly quickly.

No big plans for today. It's supposed to be real nice today, so Jim will probably be spending some time outside. Going over to the laundromat and doing the laundry yesterday kind of wore Linda out, so we'll have to see how she's feeling today. Sometime before long, she needs to go to Walgreen's to pick up some things, and I know she'd like to do a little shopping down in Champaign before we leave here.

Did you know that a Laundromat in Philadelphia that opened in 1947, is believed to be the first coin-operated laundromat in the United States?
