Most Of The "Illinois Bunch" Arrives

Rantoul, IL. 56 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 70s. Light northwest winds. Chance of precipitation 20 percent.

Jim and Linda finished getting me presentable yesterday morning. Then, Linda put a load of laundry in my washer and Jim went outside for awhile.

It was a little after noon, when Dave pulled in with his Open Road 5th wheel. There aren't any sites available real close to me, so Louise put him in site 28, which is across the street from me and North a ways. It's a nice site and he should have quite a bit of shade, which will be nice if the temperatures start climbing again.

About 20 minutes or so after Dave arrived, Denny and Bev pulled in with their Winnebago Brave. To keep everyone as close together as possible, Louise put them in site 26, which is also across the street and right next to Dave and Dee Dee. It's also a very nice site with some trees for shade.

If you look way to the left side of the photo above, you can see the very back end of Dave and Dee Dee's trailer. (That's Denny getting his satellite dish set up). 

Not long after Denny and Bev arrived, Dee Dee pulled in with their car. She may need to go someplace, so they wanted to have the car here in case it was needed.

The rest of the afternoon was spent visiting. Dave and Dee Dee's son and his daughter stopped by for awhile and then for dinner, everyone just did their own thing.

Jim and Linda didn't go back over there in the evening, but I think that Dave and Denny built a fire in the fire ring next to Denny's RV.

I don't think there are any real plans for today. Probably just more visiting and catching up on what has been happening since we last saw them down in Florida. Tomorrow, it sounds like Gordy and Dorthy may be driving down here in their car to visit for awhile, and I think a cook-out is being planned while they're here. : )

A Point to Ponder :  Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
