2018 Summer Ride, Day 94, Aug 8, Wed

Planned destination

Joliet, Il to visit family

Ride Conditions

We got rained on a couple of times today. They were light rains, but rain just the same.

Where We stopped for the Night

Best Western in Joliet, Il. This is our third time staying here, it’s a nice place but this time there were not many people staying here. That in itself isn’t a problem but at breakfast time the food wasn’t that good. It’s not like there are a lot of people to feed, so food didn’t look that fresh to me. As far as Wi-fi, we were visiting family until late at night so I didn’t get on the computer at all while there.

Family Visit

This is the third year that we have gotten together with my cousins in the Joliet area on my dad’s side, the ones that could make it. We are in and out of there so quick it’s hard to get everyone together at the same time. It’s still nice to be able to see the cousins that we can see. We may not be traveling as much in the future, now that our goal has been accomplished.

Jim bought a pizza to share, a 28 inch pizza. To give you an idea of how big the pizza was, that is my hand in the picture of the pizza.

King Midget

We stopped for fuel and some guy stopped at the pump next to us with in a King Midget car. I had never seen one before.  Posted a link about the car, the guy said there were about 5,000 of them made back in the 60’s.
