Day 1, Chicago

Well what an eventful first and very long day! At Heathrow Sue took her sons passport rather that Eds which infused a mild panic at check in! Their son, being a hero, jumped in the car and rushed to the airport to save the day.

Terry had his lid sprayed in the stars and stripes with a route 66 logo on the back and it looks brilliant but managed to snap the peak before he even wore it!

Eileen runs the bar in our hotel and what a character, she ripped into us and us her and kept us entertained until PB, Colin & Di arrived. All had a smooth journey and their reports of the windy city were inspired.

Mike & I (big Rog) although dead tired , just could not go to bed. We took a stroll to find Blues bar "Buddy Guys Legends" and enjoyed the most amazing blend of Blues Rock I've heard for many a year. Lots of friendly people all interested in our trip and offering us their best wishes.

Clocked PB's new bike last night, parked in the lot.....very cool dude these days!
