Kankakee, Illinois

One step closer to home, tonight we are in Kankakee, IL.  We have stayed in this campground one other time in 2003 on our way north into Michigan basically on the same route only in reverse.  We scooted around the Chi town suburbs a little past noon today.  Tons of traffic and construction zones so very happy to be passed that and now it's more country boy type roads that are familiar.  Tomorrow we will slip around Springfield, IL and then cross the US version of the Mississippi River at Louisiana, MO.  That bridge is quite old but MoDOT has it under contract for replacement soon.

Boy did it get hot today, the weather forecast that I saw called for perhaps a record breaking high.  Temperatures in the 90s not what we've been used to for the past couple of weeks.  Last night in Michigan the AC ran on/off all night, even early this morning before I took that sunrise picture, again not what we've been used to.
