Where I stayed
Red Roof Inn at Rockford, IL
The most exciting part of the day was pushing Porter's cycle everytime we stopped. We had to push it to get it started! It was REALLY EXCITING when we had to push it when on route 80 in CHICAGO traffic! It caused a "little" road rage, but nothing serious.
We arrived in Rockford about 7:30 PM and felt we made a lot of ground today considering we haven't ridden that long of a distance in a very long time. We decided to eat at Big Al's Bar next door to our hotel. It was good and we would recomment Big Al's Burger!
Tomorrow we will probably spend some time trying to determine why Porter's bike is not starting. Then on to see his brother in Minnesota.
Sleep tight - and thanks for joining us on our journey!
