The Chain Crawl Challenge 2011-- Part 1

The last several years, an organization has put together a Chain Crawl here in the Chain of Lakes in northeastern Illinois. This includes lakes and rivers in Lake and McHenry counties.

This is a great way to introduce new boaters to Chain establishments and gives us old boaters (we've had a boat on the Chain since 1985) something to do. There have been several parties as well as a big season finale next month.

Most bar/restaurants with water frontage on the Chain participated.

We've actually been to all them, accomplishing that in early August. However, some friends claim we cheated as we didn't boat to ever place, but sis the majority that way.

There were a total of 38 places, including one late entry that was closed at the start, then reopened. Another place was open at the beginning, then closed, then reopened.

There are also about twenty business partners where you can get extra credit for going to.

More to Come. --RoadDog
