SOUTH SANDUSKY, U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS CAMPGROUND, ON REND LAKE, REND CITY, IL
24 to 25 June, 2004. This place is loaded with wood and I sure burned some. It's also loaded with daddy long legs spiders. A racoon almost jumped into the bus again. The first night, we ran the air conditioner. Very on-off internet connection. The second night was our first test of our new Verizon 555 wireless internet card. We had it Fed-Exed to Rocky's brother, Jody. The connection held while we drove about 15 miles vack to the campground. We're very happy with the result. Once we get the adapter for our Wilson trucker antenna, we should be able to hold a great connection in places we couldn't even connect at before. Joe, Roman, Sammy, Jessie and Megan showed up in the site next to us. I brought over the rest of my wood. We partied til late. Joe is going into the Army on August 18 as an Airborne Ranger. He's ready to go to Iraq. Their site was already reserved by someone else so in the morning, the Ranger told them they had to leave the site. We just dragged everything over to our site. Rocky and I duplicated some CD's for them (Metallica, Metal Church, Pink Floyd and a combo CD I made in 2001). They were a lot of fun.
