Campin' at Illini!

Chrissy and I decided to go camping at the last minute. We went an hour and a half west of Chicago to a little town called Marseilles, IL at Illini State Park. It was a lot of fun and very interesting!

This was the weirdest cafe i've ever been in.. there was actually a smelly coffee bar with a bunch of older people chatting... strange, wish I had a photo of the inside.

Here sat our stalker. This guy followed us around the camp grounds, he asked if he could sleep on our site, kinda creepy! I wish he was sitting here at the time so you could see him. He said he was broke and homeless, but I do spot a seat and guitar!

Ok, this was so weird... it was a HUGE bardge thingy that carried a cancer causing chemical. It took up the entire Illinois River. It was so long I thought it was an aircraft carrier... ok so maybe i'm stretching it, but still -- i've never seen anything like it. I had to also post a picture of the worker checking the "cancer chemicals"...
