Or last trip of the season was back to Paradise Campground in Garden Prairie, Illinois. We needed a place with a sewer to be able to wash all the nasties out of the black tank (poop deck is what I call it!).
The weather Friday night sucked. Very windy and about 40F. Chris had started the fire about 4 pm as it was already cold and it was getting colder. There’s just so much cold I’m going to sit in. I succumbed early at 7 pm.
Saturday was much nicer and we went to the Illinois Railway Museum.
The Kishwaukee River was very calm and almost allowed me to take some mirror images of the trees in it.
Remember how windy I wrote Friday night was? Well, Chris had been tending the fire when I asked him to get me something. He promptly got up, got the tool from the truck and opened the camper door to hand it to me. I looked past him to see his chair had blown over into the fire! I yelled, but it was WAY too late.
Lesson of the Day: Sandbag chairs in high winds. DOH!!
Stalactites have to hold on to the ceiling tight, stalagmites might reach the ceiling.
