Itasca is right around the corner. It'll be here before you know it. Are you ready for it?

At the hotel in Itasca after an uneventful trip from Eastern Iowa with 5 Nomads from Arizona, Washington State, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. Stopped and visited American Pickers in Leclaire, Iowa. Interesting place. Looks MUCH BIGGER on TV. No stars there today. Very nice hotel. More as the week goes on.

Went to a car show today in Wheaton, IL. Planned on stopping by Itasca on Monday. Someone at the car show told me people are already showing up in Itasca. Then he told me it was only 20 min. away. So, I went and glad I did. Met some of the guys I talked to in the forum.
On the way home I just left the Weston. As I was winding the streets to get back on I 290, I see someone waving their arms at a car wash. Thinking,man, the car wash must be desparate for cars so they got to flag cars down. As I looked closer I put 2 and 2 together and realize it was a fellow 55 Nomader needing help. I pulled into the car wash and he asked for a ride back to the Weston to get a jack and some tools. I asked him what was the problem and he said his shift linkage fell off and was just dangling. Unfortunately I had no tools........No, wait a minute, I've got my Leatherman! So, I told him I'm going to put your car in drive and that will get you back to the Weston. So, I sandwiched my body between the ground and car and did just that. I also reminded him not to get in a position where you have to back up. I asked if he wanted me to follow him and he said he would be ok. So, off I head home to Rockford and plan to return tomorrow for more adventures.
