Starved Rock State Park — Oglesby, IL
However, when we arrived, we couldn’t start our Honda CRV. Dead battery? We even thought we might have towed it with the park brake on. Did we destroy the transmission? We were in a panic. But we were able to get it together and schedule the car to be towed to a local Honda dealer.
So Tuesday ended on a sour note . . . first an RV problem, now the car. Oy veh.
Wednesday I (Tom) spent the morning at the local Honda dealership in Ottawa, but found out that the only thing wrong with our car was a dead battery. So it cost $95 for a charge. Much better than installing a rebuilt transmission. Whew!
But the best Wednesday moment was watching wild turkeys walk next to our RV and through the park.
On Thursday there were no issues with any of our vehicles, but it did rain all morning.
However, after we ate lunch, we were finally able to get out and about . . .
