    Pontiac Ill campout in Sept.

    The Dinky Dozen club #84 will be hosting a campout on Sept 20 and 21, 2013 at the Pontiac IL 4-H campgrounds.
    This 4-H park has lots of mature trees and grassy areas to camp in. The town of Pontiac has a great route 66 museum, a Pontiac car museum and a war museum. It also has many good places to eat. Come and hang out with fellow beemer folks in the nice September weather.

    Here is the location:
    Livingston County 4H Park
    18142 4H Park Road
    Pontiac, IL 61764
    GPS: 40.892105,-88.664732

    Sneaky Good

    You're riding along and you're thinking, they're having a rally, here?
    And then you turn into this little grove of trees.
    Really nice little rally.
    You have to make it, you just have to.
    One of my favs

    Here is Pontiac's visitor website.

    The route 66 museum is a great place to take a picture of your bike under the big route 66 sign.
    Their courthouse is restored and open to public now. (I wonder what the court room where I once appeared looks like.)
    I wonder if the draft board is still there--I could tell them how much I enjoyed their all expense paid trip to Vietnam they gave me.

    In spite of the memories, I do enjoy my visits to Pontiac.

    Yes--you can arrive Friday and set up camp.
    We will have firewood available in case you need it.
    There is a good Mexican restaurant about a 1/2 mile from the park and in Downtown Pontiac there is an Italian place that is great called Bernardes.
    A good grocery store is 3 blocks west of the downtown square. It also carries adult beverages.

    Don't forget the route 66 museum, the war museum in the same building and the Pontiac car museum on the square.

    This looks like a good weekend. The /5 is smiling at the thought of getting loaded up for a campout. This looks very doable and hopefully the kid can get some miles on his R100 and join us.

    There is a great photo op at the Route 66 museum in Pontiac.
    This is in the parking lot at the north side of the museum.
