Needed a hotel close to Starved Rock and this one advertises as being the closest. Good Best Western quality. Not expensive, with good facilities. Friendly helpful check in staff. Have used this brand a few times recently. Possibly better quality than Comfort Inn and definitely better than Quality Inn. 2 queen beds. Fridge and microwave but only one chair at a small table. Small almost square pillows but soft.

I knew we weren't going to have another chance to do this so I sucked it up, took some Tylenol and just carried on.

Our lunch break was next, which was good because John was exhausted…one more school program at 1:30pm and then we’re off to Kewanee (which we still have to learn how to pronounce). We’re staying at a YMCA tonight and we’ve already been told we can use their facilities while we’re there, so I’m definitely taking advantage of that!
We were sad to leave our beautiful hotel room in Mason City, but we began our trip east toward Starved Rock State Park, Illinois. We knew it would be a long driving day, so we took off early and found a place to eat in Mason City (thanks again, Yelp!) and got on the road by 8 a.m.
We wanted to visit a fossil park in Rockford, Iowa, just a few miles south of our route, but when we got to the town, the bridge across ...
... br> 4. The contract they originally had for us required that we come back in late August, making getting a job as a high school teacher when I get back pretty much impossible.
5. It's really freakin' cold.
But much like she did with all of the paperwork leading up to this point, Jill convinced Drew and I that we should buckle down and do it. That girl will be the death of me. She reminded me (not in so many words) that adventure is ...
