Our objective was to make 20 times out in the boat by the 4th of July and we made it today. It would have been sooner had it not been for all the really, really hot days which we've been and still are having.
This has been ONE HOT and FRY summer so far. Boated over to McDonald's for breakfast and then over by the eagle nest on what we call Bird island, but no one was home.
On the way over, we noticed that the good gas folk in Fox Lake, Illinois, had raised the price from $3.45 yesterday to $3.66 today. hey. it's the 4th of July, time to make money. We lucked out and the Shell station was still at $3.45 so filled the Malibu up and also a 2 1/2 gallon can for the boat. two hours later, they too were at $3.66, which we figured they'd be.
Played NTN at Donovan's and then went to the Route 12 Bar and Grill and the Legion in Fox Lake.
