Our first rally on the road was Hogrocktober near Cave In Rock IL. You can find out more info on hogrock.com, they have the fall rally and then another in June. We have to say this was a really fun event, beautiful location, good people, good music and we will be back to this one. We made some new friends, Big Sue, Rita, Mark, Chris, Quinten; just to name a few and some of our vavorite vendors were there. We even got Cowboy and his really awesome horse in the studio! Shot our first calander man too! There's a few stories we cannot tell, not a 'G' rated event for sure. Here's a few picks, enjoy!
September was crazy busy for Sal and Adrienne getting all our poop in a group to hit the road. But we pulled it off and headed for our first stop in southern IL. The wind about blew us away pushing the RV all over the place, especially as we passed by Chicago. Called the windy city for good reason! Sal's arms were still feeling the grip of the steering wheel as she layed down that night, road weary but excited to be sarting the first leg of a lot of unknowns. We pulled into Cave In Rock State Campground in the middle of the night, finding a campsite to fit the RV with the van on the car dolly was our first adventure! We woke to a beautiful site, rolling green grassy tree covered hills all around us. Within a short time we were having coffee with our neighbors and now friends, Mike and Donna. We thought if this is any sign of things to come this is going to be a great adventure! We took a ride with Mike and Donna to Cave In Rock, what a mystical awesome place! Right on the Ohio River, a cave with so much history, indians, pirites, outlaws and who knows what took place there. We explored the area, sat on indian mounds and even found an arrowhead. The rock formations held faces of indians, it was sooooo cool! The photos will tell a bit of the story.
