Day 70 – Change of plans

Tuesday, 7/16/2019
Odell, Illinois

Change of plans! I just met a guy here in Odell about to start mowing the lawn in the city park where I’m camped. (Turns out, he is also the manager of the local bank.)

Anyways, he asked if there was any thing missing on my trip so far, and I mentioned that I was really hoping to make it to a county fair at some point. I did not attend the county fair two nights ago in Henry, although the tractor pull competition kept me up past midnight with the incredibly loud noise.

He said the Livingston County Fair, this being Livingston County, starts tomorrow, and he would be happy to drive me out there at noon time. He would also be happy to arrange for me to get a ride home after the rodeo ends.

So at the cost of one extra day of camping for free in the city park in Odell, Illinois, I am going to the Livingston County fair tomorrow!

I am so excited!
