Day One - Singing in the Rain
So, we plan this big trip and we got it almost right, right from the start. The key to the start was buying the iPod Nano and connecting it to the Harley's sound system. Perfect! David is supposed to be saving his voice but all the way here (Joliet, IL - first stop) we are singing at the top of our lungs. Of course, no one can hear us because Dan's pipes (now on our bike) are so loud, but it was a great praise service all the way here. GPS, perfect (almost, but we will talk about that later)! Load, perfect! Highway, perfect! Rider ...:))))) Perfect!!!! But, as you can see from the pictures (we have now changed the date on the camera for pictures) we didn't calculate one thing ... leaving and having rain the first day. We wanted to leave our rain gear in their tight little packages but, the weather didn't cooperate. So, we found ourselves sitting under our first bridge and then, open the little packages. Robin thinks she can get the rain gear back in the bags they came in :))))! Won't happen. But, we are here with just a little rain and looking forward and planning Day 2 - to Springfield, IL. The other pictures are grandson Aiden warming up the Harley for grandpa before we leave and Robin and David entering Indiana. We would have stopped to take a picture of Illinois but it was starting to rain and there was six lanes of traffic between the Harley and a sign. Take our word for it, we're in Illinois.
