A Little Shopping and Finalizing The Trip Plan

Rantoul, IL.

64 deg. overcast, SE wind @ 6 mph.

Forecast = Overcast. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible. High 84F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.

Saturday morning, Jim was planning on doing some shopping but as the day wore on, he didn't feel very good, so shopping was canceled and he spent quite a bit of time on the computer, working more on the trip plan for our return to Florida.

Yesterday, he felt quite a bit better, so he took Big RED and headed over to the ACE Hardware store where he bought some chemicals for Nora's toilet, a can of silicone spray and a few other small items. Then, it was next door to the CVS store and then on to Rural King to pick up a new pair of jeans for himself and a few other items. After he returned, he and Linda watched TV and Jim pretty much finalized the trip plan.

Now, as always, this plan is written in pencil and he still has his eraser. ;-)

Anyway, it looks like we'll be leaving Rantoul on the 12th of October. Our first stop will be to see Linda's cousin, Mike, who lives on the South side of Indianapolis, IN. From there, we'll take our time and head East to the Cincinnati area, then into WV, and finally to Virginia Beach, arriving there on or about the 19th of October.

We'll stay in VB for about a week and then head over to the Apex, NC area, where we'll stay another week or so, and then head South from there, following mostly 2 lane roads down to Florida. We'll be  getting down there somewhere around the 15 of November.

Oh, did you happen to see the moon last night during the eclipse? It was kind of neat when it turned red for awhile!!! There were some reports on the news that some people were sure that "the end of the earth as we know it" was going to happen, but I guess it didn't, cause everything seems normal this morning. :-)

We had quite a few RVs come to Prairie Pines this weekend. The weather was so nice that I guess a lot of folks decided to camp one more time before the weather changes. By the time we leave here in October, the average high will be 68 deg. and the average low 43 deg.

Did you know that after the September 27/ 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse, a Supermoon eclipse will not happen again for another 18 years, until October 8, 2033?
