Day 3, 6/1/15

 

Weather:  Clear and sunny all day, temperature in the high 70s.

By local standards, here in Huntley, Illinois, elevation 880 ft., we rose early.  This was due to the time change when we crossed into the central time zone.  We left the Walmart parking lot at approximately 8 a.m. and again headed for Rt. 90.

Yesterday, we had become concerned when the computer read out on the dash board began showing a service code.  With only 2400 miles on the vehicle, we could not imagine what surprise now lay before us.  After numerous calls to the Sprinter manufacturer, we were able to discover that the vehicle needed an oil change, a totally unexpected surprise.  Arrangements were made with an approved dealership in Madison, Wisconsin to do the service at 1 p.m.  This worked out fine for us since they were located further west and along our route of travel.

Later in the day, we headed for Devil’s Lake State Park in Wisconsin, N 43° 25’ 53”  W 89° 44’ 02” with an elevation of 984 ft.  We heard of this lovely place while talking with a young woman in Camping World, a shopping stop along our drive.  Devil’s Lake turned out to be a beautiful and well maintained family area.  We registered at the gate for a camp site for the evening.  This gave us a beautiful and relaxing end to day three.
