Road trip

June 30, 2008

I have spent the last week on the road. Jim and I left for Indiana to attend the Circular Sock Machine Convention in Nashville, Indiana. I was concerned about the trip as we had to replan our route due to flooding in Iowa. We ended up going through St. Louis and then over. We spent the night in Effingham, Illinois and arrived at the Abe Martin Lodge on Sunday afternoon. We had a cabin that we stayed at from Sunday through Thursday morning. The cabins and the area were decorated with the characters of Kin Hubbard.

Inside the lodge were some interesting pieces.

It’s Father’s Day weekend so we went to the antique car and motorcycle show in Baldwin City.       







Here Jim is talking to a guy about his B.S.A. motorcycle.     

                 Jim has one too.                                             

               It was a hot day. Heather and I tried to entertain ourselves so he had time to look. He ran into his friend Terry and his wife Sue. They have an Avanti.    Terry also works at the railroad.








Jim likes Indian motorcycles. Here is one we saw down there.

This is what was what was on Heather’s and my mind though.






Heather and I walk around town. It is home to Baker University. We ate at Wheat State Pizza which Heather loves. We also went to the quilt store.








We left Baldwin City and headed for Lawrence where we stopped at several of my favorite places. I will  try to put those pictures on tomorrow.
