Oct 28, 2016 - Iowa to Mahomet, Illinois

10-28-16 Clear Lake, IA to Mahomet, IL Got up around 7AM, but didn’t get going very fast today. By the time we were hitched up and on the road it was 10:15AM. Another day of overcast, wind, and 100 percent humidity. Temperatures are in the 60s so overall, not too bad. Driving is slower towing the Grey Wolf. The rig is good, no sway and the truck pulls the trailer well, but wind makes things harder. The gas mileage has dropped to 8.5 mpg average and this means more frequent stops for gas (only a 23 gallon tank). We are averaging 47 mph,...

Mahomet is just outside of Champaign and we are in a small campround on the edge of Land of the Woods State Park. As you can see we have a little color here but weare just getting the tail end of everything.....oh well. Small change of plans, we were getting homeon Thursday but looks like the rain and WIND (surprise, surprise)is catching up with us. We're going to try to get down the mountain Wednesday. Seem to be running from the weather everywhere we go.

Sep 14, 2012 - Shelby to Mahomet, IL

Friday -- There was a very heavy dew last night. We left the tent up while we ate breakfast but even when we dried it off more dew condensed on it again. We put the dry tent back in its bag but left the very wet fly cover out in the back of the car. On the way out we stopped for coffee before getting back onto I-80 heading east. With just one day left we listened to the radio to try to catch up on the world events we had missed hearing during our trip. NPR was airing a program about wind energy while, coincidentally, we were driving past...

May 3, 2012 - Berea, KY to Mahomet, IL

May 3, 2012 Berea, KY/Mahomet, IL Today we were glad to get an earlier start and get some mileage under our belts. Stopped at a lovely IN rest stop to eat our lunch at a picnic table in the shade of lovely trees. Very calming. On to Indianapolis, West on 74, passing mile after mile of corn fields with barbed-wire fencing and at the end of the rows the fence was covered with rotten blown plastic bags and whatever. Such a sad sign of our times. The wind became stronger and we were glad to find the Tin Cup RV Park in Mahomet and get the rig...

Jun 12, 2008 - Detour!!! Floods!!! Road & Camp Closings

6/12 The state park at Coraville Lake is spectaluar. Thank Heaven it is on high ground as the lake has flooded. We are just west of the raging Cedar River and twenty miles south of Cedar Rapids. I-80 is raised and is 3 miles to the south of the camp,but Iowa University -just a stone's throw to the south of the I-80 and built on the low land-- has been flooded by the mighty Iowa River. to see the devistation on TV is frightening and saddening, but to be in the midst is shocking and at time scarey. But we do feel safe. 6/13 Our plans to...

May 25, 2008 - From Minnesota to Wisconsin

Friday 5/23/08: Continued the trip home with about 1,200 miles to go in the next two days. The whole day we plotted our trip and finally settled on going across Wisconsin via I-90 and dropping down into Illinois via I-94 with a stopover in Mahomet, Illinois for the night with another 585 miles put on Big "D". We stopped for lunch and a break in Wisonson Dells and let Cindy squish some more pennies. I noticed the fields in Illinois that the farmers were planting on my way West 3 or 4 weeks ago are starting to show nice growth. Apparently...

Aug 31, 2007 - Mahomet, Illinois

We are up early and have a good travel day. We head south on Route 65 and then east on 34. We pass through Ottumwa, Iowa but Radar isn't home. We make it all the way across Iowa and cross the Mississippi River! We should keep track of how many different bridges we have used to cross the Mississippi. In Illinois we drop further to the south on Route 67 (Not 66) and then east again on Route 136. The roads are so good we make it all the way to Mahomet, Illinois. We even get on an Interstate for 20 minutes. We are traveling at an unbelievable...
