Last Entry for This Trip ! !

DAY 52 - Fri Sep 17 2010
Sunny morning, with hi's in the low 80's today. No rain last night. Rolling east again on I-55 North. We spotted an Airstream on I-55, they were heading south - towed by a black truck. They didn't wave or blink.
We stopped in Chestnut Illinois at an antique store, then went for lunch across the street. Chestnut is the geographical center of Illinois, complete with a noon-time whistle. There were lots of probably corn...

Day 44 - Thu Sep 9 2010
Another warm morning, and a slow day. Nothing too exciting, laundry and hubby fixed the gaucho couch. Some of the nails had come loose and the wooden frame was hanging in several places!!! Some of those bumps on the road are CRAZY ! ! He got it repaired and now it`s stronger than ever. The laundry room at the Starlite Classic Campground is modern with retro furnishings -- there is an old porcelain kitchen sink that works, and of course and iron and ironing board should...

Day 43 - Wed Sep 8 2010
We awoke to a sunny morning, but the sky looks a little dark over the mountains. We don't care -- we're at the Starlite Classic Campground. The first thing you see when you pull in is several restored vintage trailers, just waiting for visitors. The office\store is full of lots of vintage things. The park has only been open since April this year, and the owners are very anxious to get it going. The bathrooms, laundry and grounds are very clean, and the price is very...

Day 41 - Monday Sep 6 2010
Labour Day !!
Cool night followed by a cool, but sunny morning. As soon as we got on I-6, we spotted an Airstream heading west, and then about an hour later, a little Bambi also heading west.
As we got to the Utah state line, we saw a newer Airstream being pulled by a red pickup, covered in dust, probably heading home from Burning Man.
Later, as we were crossing the Salt Flats, on I-80, we spotted a newer Airstream being towed by a dark pickup....

DAY37 - Thu Sep 2 2010
Another bright, sunny morning with hi's in the 90's again today. We sat around the house by the pool, and then went for a hair trim in the afternoon. Later, we went out for dinner to the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. -- nice place, good service, good food, and best of all great company. We got back to our friends' place and called it an early night.
DAY 38 - Fri Sep 3 2010
Another bright sunny California morning, but we had to say our goodbyes. We were rolling...
