Oct 13, 2011 - Pinckneyville

Rode with Ron and Georgia into Pinckneyville (ci.pinckneyville.il.us) for a quick tour of the town, Pinckneyville is a town of 5,500 people 3,000 of which are inmates at the local state prison. Ron and Georgia lived in Pinckneyville for many years before building their new home. On the way back home we stopped to pick up the fixings for Ron to grille later this afternoon, and of course we had to stop and check out a couple of thrift stores. Ron has about 40 acres most of which is heavily wooded so we took the quad runners out for a drive...

Oct 10, 2011 - Ron & Georgias place

Can't believe how nice the weather has been, I don't think we've had any rain since we left Montana a month ago and the last couple of weeks it has been in the 70's and 80's during the day and 50's and 60's at night. Only a sixty mile drive down to Ron & Georgia's today, mostly state highways and county roads through mostly agricultural farm land. Ron is a part time tour bus driver, he left last Wednesday for New York and should be home some time tomorrow evening. They have a beautiful home they had built on 40 acres out in the country, Ron...
