Transformers . . .

First off, I finally did get yesterday’s blog posted on our DeYoung Family Zoo visit. Just scroll down below this one to read it.

Since we only had about 200 miles to go today, we didn’t leave Pine Grove Campground in Shawano, WI until almost 11.

We were heading south to Janesville, WI where we planned to spend the night at the local Moose Lodge. And since we would only have 20 amp power, the later we got there the cooler it would be, since we would not be able to run the AC’s without starting the generator.

But it was overcast all the way along today, and was pretty cool when we got here about 3:30. And even better it was supposed to be in the low 60’s tonight.

This Moose Lodge is really nice, with a big parking lot and plenty of room to maneuver the rig. As I said we only have 20 amp electric but that’s plenty with this cooler weather.

And the view is nice, too.

About 4:30 we headed out for another dinner and a movie night.

Dinner was at Red Robin, one of our favorite burger places, and after a quick stop at Wal-Mart, we went to see the latest Transformers movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

We had seen the first two, and wanted a complete set. We both liked it, although sometimes the action was so fast it was hard to tell who was fighting who. But the special effects were fantastic. It’s really amazing how they can make giant transforming robots look as real as the car they’re standing next to.

Tomorrow we’ve got another short trip, about 165 miles to the Bloomington/Normal, Illinois area. Hopefully it’ll be nice and cool like today.


Thought for the Day:
