radiated out from Chicago
as we headed there too.
Day 83: Saturday, September 25.
To home of Paul Watkins & Ruth Runeborg in Skokie, IL. Following Paul's route suggestions and Catharine's navigation, we found county roads, then bike paths to Lake Bluff; Paul & Ruth welcomed us on the bike path (we had met them in Glacier NP and they had invited us to stay with them); followed them through incredibly up-scale residential neighborhoods to their home; trip to bike store for two new tires for Rob; wonderful dinner and beds while hosts went barn dancing (Paul's a caller). 57 miles.
| We met our Chicago hosts/guides at Lake Forest, IL |
where fall had definitely put in an appearance.
| Our host/guides, |
Paul Watkins and Ruth Runeborg,
biked with us to Lake Shore Drive.

YUP, we made it all the way!!!
| A triumphant hug |
at the place on the bike path
where we "connected the dots"
with our first Cohasset/Chicago leg.
