Route 66 Begins – Chicaco & Springfield

We finally hit the road, taking Route 66 from the shores of Lake Michigan to Springfield, IL.

Before we leave Chicago we had a chance to attend a Chicago White Sox game vs. the Minnesota Twins.

Repairs and a Tuneup in Morrison, IL

April 11th, 2010

When we first bought the Cadillac it had a bad heater core, spewing coolant all over the floorboards and spitting white smoke into the passenger compartment. We tried to make it to Sterling, IL which was the nearest “big” town to where we purchased the Caddy. On the way, we spotted Pete Harkness Chevrolet (just as the caddy was overheating). We met Nancy, the sweetest lady in all of Illinois, and she introduced us to Joe, the service manager and best mechanic in all of Illinois. Joe’s expertise had us back on the road in no time, with only a $60 repair and tuneup bill.
