6/10 – 6/11 Another two days brought us to Crystal Lake, Illinois. The first day we traveled I-69, US24 and I-57 for 204 miles to a Wal-Mart in Bourbonnais, Illinois. The next day was a short 89 miles to another Wal-Mart parking lot. From Crystal Lake we drove the Jeep to Palatine to visit Sue (Joan’s sister) and her husband Chuck.

It was almost a 4 star (3.5), great fun and had a good variety of Polish food.

I kept trying to tell local people there that we were there for our 20th and they'd laugh and say something like "No it's not - my 30th is coming up next year" so I started saying we were there for our 10th instead. I must admit we looked great - the 10% of my class that attends these things. (I feel that way even though I am the only girl from my class with grey...
