Heading North

Tuesday, July 1, 2008 -- near Edwardsville, IL

The past two days have been clear, cool, and relatively bug-free. It's been easy to be lazy and sit outside in the gazebo that's right next to our campsite here at the Red Barn Rendezvous RV Park, and read, write, nod off. We did get up the energy for a 21 mile bike ride into Edwardsville yesterday.

Today we're breaking camp and heading north. It's about 360 miles to Beaver Dam from here. We could make it in one day but since it's already after 8am and Dar's still sawing wood in bed, it probably more realistic to say we'll go about half way today and finish the trip tomorrow.
