I returned home to Illinois this last July 31st, after a 12-day trip to North Carolina to visit my family.
I left Spring Grove July 20 with odometer reading 37,071 in the 2011 Malibu, the traveling vehicle for trips. The gauge showed 29.4 mpg.
Enjoyed the wild flower/weeds, along Miller Road and much of Illinois for that matter, which were in full bloom and pretty. Two of them had yellow and blue flowers and one was white, Queen Anne's Lace.
Gas was $2.90 most of the way along Il-47, but a high for the trip of $3.12 at the Elburn BP, always one of the most expensive.
Enjoyed listening to WDRV's Ten at Ten on 96.9, then 97.1 FM as I drove. Today they were doing Blues Monday.
