It's that time of year again! Our vacations revolve around Bob's passion for old Chevys and this time it is taking us to Chicago Land....Arlington Heights to be exact. We'll be leaving in a few days for just a short stay. The conventions have been held in the Chicago area several times & it is a convenient trip for us, plus they usually have several activities.
So, once again, think of us in that heavy Chicago traffic, riding in the big truck, pulling a double car trailer. The coming & going is the part I dread as we are the length of a semi trailer rig. Therefore, we have to be very careful when we pull off that we don't get stuck in a tight spot. (In the past, I have had to get out & stop traffic so Bob can back that rig up! Just what I wanted to do....)
I have plans to go on the downtown Chicago bus trip. They will take us to Navy Pier & from there we can ride the trolleys around the loop, getting off & on where we want. I'm buddy-less this time, so am going to have to make a friend fast as this small town girl doesn't want to wander those streets alone!
Friends of ours are coming to spend one day with us. Then we will be back home a few days to get ready to head out for North Carolina.
And in case you are wondering....NO, I won't be going out on the the Sky Deck at the Sears Tower. See through floors 1,353 feet in the air are not for me!
