I flew to Iowa to pick-up our traveling adventure machine and after a couple of days of orientation and I’m starting the 1,200 mile journey back home. I’m not a huge coffee drinker but this morning’s latte at Cabin Coffee Company was better than most I’ve had! Maybe the best ever! Cabin Coffee is a still small (just four stores) franchise out of Des Moines. Stop in if you’re near one!
Made headway of 365 mile on this first day out. After a couple of hours of driving through rain I stopped in Iowa City to see a photography friend of mine. Bruce took me on a tour of the downtown/university area. I’d like to come back some day and spend more than just a few hours.
Arrived well after dark at a nearly flooded campground in the middle of Illinois that is running in self-service mode. Envelope and Honor box. I think the owners are in Florida. I drove around two 5th wheels trying to park while finding my space. I had parked & powered & hooked-up to water & was relaxing with a beverage in my hand while they were still unpacking wood and shovels to get their dually pick-ups unstuck. On this first real night of adventure travel I am glad our traveling machine is a small one!
