South Beloit, IL June 18th

We ended up at the Pearl Lake Campground tonight.

What a day this has been. Driving around Chicago is not a pleasure at any time, so we were not surprised by the almost constant construction, roads in terrible condition and surrounded by every 18 wheelers most of the time. Just as we thought we had were out of the worst of it traveling on US 90 toward Wisconsin, the traffic came to a STOP and remained stopped for about an hour. We are not sure of what all was involved, but we did see a huge wrecker hauling away a 18 wheeler. The only remnants of the accident we saw were tire tracks in the median. Anyway, I missed a photo op showing us stopped in what had to be, miles of stopped traffic.
