Headed to Chicago today.  Went past some lovely towns like Hammond and Gary, Indiana and they smelled teriffic.    Had dinner last night at Cracker Barrell restaurant.  That was a great meal with cornbread, chicken, dumplings, steak, biscuits, and that weird game with the golf tees that only RAINMAN or some 12 year old chess master that is searching for Bobby Fisher could figure out how to solve.  If you don't know what game I mean then don't worry about it.  Before we left Perrysburg we stopped at "Wallyworld!" (walmart) to pick up some ice and plastic utensils.  4 hours through farmland and views of steelmills in Indiana until we arrived in Chicago.  Hung out with Murph and his owners for a little while.  They made us a great lunch (turkey burgers, chicken sausage, jose forona beers, fruit salad, etc.)  By the way Eric and Jen are Murphs owners and he is a dog.  Took a picture in front of a little convenience store on Belmont.  Murph felt sick after lunch so he laid down.  He told me he is getting sick of Eric's shit and wanted to come to Montana with us.  I told him he would have to take the bus.  We drove 4 more hours to Oakdale, WI to the best KOA we have been to yet with a pool (took a swim in the warm water at 7:30) and a game room.  Started a nice fire and we are staying in a Kozy Kabin as they call them.  Kabin is really nice and has AC and nice bed.  Ate a PB and J with an orange for dinner.  You are probably jealous of this extravagant meal.  Go buy yourself an orange jiffy man.  Going back to sit by the fire.
