Good To Go!!!

Rantoul, IL.

54 deg. overcast NE wind @ 7 mph.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs around 70. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

About 8:15 yesterday morning, Jim remembered that he had forgotten to get CLT and drink of 87 octane, so he took him and headed to the nearest station, which happens to be a Casey's. By the time they came back here, Linda was ready so they headed down to the little town of Savoy, (which is just South of  Champaign), to Jim's 9:30 eye doctor appointment.

CLT says that they got there with a little time to spare.

Again, they checked his vision and eye pressures and then put some drops in his eyes to dilate the pupils so the eye doctor could look in his eyes to see if there was anything wrong.

Well, she couldn't find anything seriously wrong, so she told Jim to keep on putting the drops in that she had prescribed and that he was "good to go" until next summer when we return to Illinois. : )

Good News!!!!!! : )

On the way back here to the CG, they stopped at the Urbana Gardens Restaurant and had breakfast for lunch. When they got back here, Jim took a nap as his eyes were still bothering him from being dilated. While Jim was sleeping, Linda worked with her family tree program and took a little nap herself. ; ) 

After Jim woke up, he went outside and checked my engine fluid levels, re-installed the tow bar on the front of CLT and checked my generator. While he was doing that, Linda washed a load of laundry and then worked on the computer some more.

Unless there's a glitch, we'll be leaving here Monday morning and start wandering our way towards the East Coast. : )

Oh, It doesn't sound like I'm going to get to meet Judy and her RV. : (  The place where they towed her MH to in Illinois, can't seem to fix it so now they're going to tow it back to Indiana!! She was in Indiana when all if this started, I'm wondering why they didn't tow it to a repair facility there in the first place?

You can click on this link to view her blog, Travels with Emma . If you have time, add a comment to her blog to let her know that we're all hoping she'll kick that "Murphy" guy in the "you know where", and get back on the road real soon. ; )

Did you know that light colored eyes dilate faster than dark colored eyes?


  1. Well, Emrys, maybe I'll get to see you some other time down the road. Safe travels to you all!

  2. So glad to hear that Jim got good news at his eye doctor appointment!!

  3. Great news about the eyes. Too bad you can't meet up with Judy. Safe travels.
