*Sung to "It's Howdy Doody Time" themesong
Another milestone hit today -- I passed through my truck's 500 mile "break in" for towing. During the break in period, the maximum speed is 50 mph.
I never thought I'd be happy to see those "reduce speed" signs on the highway -- you know the ones that happen as you pass through a city when you have to go from 70 to 55? Always a frustration? When, however, you are ALREADY doing 50 in a 70, they come as a welcome change from watching little old ladies with blue hair, who can almost see over the steering wheel, go FLYING by on your left. I really didn't need to worry about passing other cars while pulling an RV -- at 50 mph, believe me it never came up. And speed traps? Ha, I laughed as I watched all the other vehicles hit the brakes.
So here I am in Benton, Illinois, and finally I get to see some sun. It hasn't rained hard very often, but it has usually been cloudy. I got to the campsite early, got unhitched, and discovered a lovely little fishing pond across the street. Lots of Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) flittering about.
And tomorrow starts newbie class!
