... skin would be unable to handle the extreme cold temperatures! Really loved Chicago....it was a pity it was so cold because you really couldn't get out too much, so didn't get to do a lot of shopping...just a look around the malls etc, which were huge! Need lots of time and lots of money! I know I need to get some pictures up on here, but I have had limited time to get online...will do as soon as I can. Love to all my New Zealand family...miss you lots ...

We made some local friends Matt and Matt who could not believe we were in Galesburg. Everybody kept asking if we were going to Knox college.

The plastic cover had a few deep grooves in it as it flew from my bike at 55mph and hit the road. I turned the GPS on and it worked!!! Thanks to Garmin and their rugged (and expensive) 'motorcycle' GPS.
We drove from Ohio to Crawfordsville Indiana, 271 miles on Thursday the 27th. The next day we arrived in Galesburg at the Campground on Friday and did a little shopping. The next day, Saturday, we visited Patti's father (who is 91) and sister and other family members. While the visit was brief, it was a pleasant day and a nice stop before heading on towards Iowa. Drove 273 miles today and 215 yesterday.
Total miles so far 1933.
