We moved the coach from Madison Wisconsin to
Pine Country (Outdoor World) in Belvidere Illinois
which is still 65 miles from Chicago. . .guess why?
because it’s part of our Thousand Trails “Membership” package
so there’s no charge for us to be here. . .yaaa!
After some of the prices we’ve paid to stay up here in
the Great Lakes Area. . .”free” is good for the budget.
Boy, am I ever glad it’s free. . .’cause it’s only 30A service,
and it has gotten hot. . .up into the 90’s. . .
Now, that would normally not be a problem . . .right?
We can still run one A/C. . .and just maneuver appliances and such. . .
trust me. . .over 12 years of full timing. . .we’ve figured out the 30A misery. . .
The problem happens about 2 o’clock every afternoon. . .
the sun is beating down on the MAIN Breaker Supply. . .
those breakers heat up. . .and TRIP!
So. . .no one in our row is tripping their individual breakers at their pole. . .
but we have to wait for the tech to come over. . .unlock the main breaker box,
and get us all up and going again. . .yaaa. . .NOT FUN!
okay. . .enough whining. . .on to the fun stuff. . .
Next week, our #1 Grandson (he’s the only boy) will be here. . .
so. . .before he gets here, we’re going to move the coach over to the KOA
you know I love my murals. . .and since we weren’t fixing to go into Chicago
on the weekend, we decided we would go check them out. . .
I’ll just show you this really great one. . .and include the rest in my album.
As we were walking about snapping pics, one the shopkeepers came out
to see what we were finding so interesting. . .it really is a pretty little town. . .
obviously an important place, at some time in history. . .
so we chatted with her a bit about the town and her business,
and told her exploring little towns is a great way to get a nice walk in. . .
we thoroughly enjoyed it.
I know this has not been all that exciting. . .
but I wanted to chronicle Belvidere for our journal. . .
Next time. . .Chicago. . .I promise!
