Back on the road after a week in the Chicago area for mother-in-law B-day (97). So I headed for the mecca of all travelers....Ames, Iowa.....and that guy named Mark. Met Mark and Debbie (sp?) at their home and we all went out for some great BBQ (just in time to beat the crowd). A special thanks for the dinner since they picked up the tab. Mark and I headed over to his shop to check out the PT Cruiser beater... Ha d a nice visit then off to find a motel and look for our next road.
