The drive from Grand Island to Evansdale was again pleasant but long. We arrived on Wed. to find our normal campground was being evacuated because of rising flood waters. We traveled around to several other locations but the same story. We ended up in the Wal-Mart parking lot for the evening. The next day we spent looking for another alternative. We heard from Matt and he had gotten out of Mexico ok and would arrive in Evansdale around 4:00. The manager of Menards gave us directions to a lovely state park (Hickory Hills). Matt met us there.
We have spent the weekend with Matt. He had a couple from work over for a picture presentation of our trip. Steve and Pam would like to do the trip in the future. We had a great evening with them swapping stories.
Tomorrow we will be off the Peoria, IL to visit Mike and take a tour of CAT where he has been working this summer. Then it will be the home run on Wed.. I can't believe but we only have two days left. We have had a great time with Matt and now looking forward to seeing Mike.
