Stick in the mud but not too stuck

So I know I posted of a trip heading out to Colorado but once again it turned into a no-go. The reason is pure and simple that the wife is pregnant with our fourth child and she is uncomfortable with nerve pain in her back. Plus she would be chasing our three other kids around and I just couldn't do it. Of course I couldn't be really upset since I got to do the NC gap trip with the Ninja. 
I already took the week off so it would be a week of day trips but nothing really new or great. My son and I took off for one night at the Johnson Sauk trail that is about five miles north of kewanne Illinois. It really is in the middle of nowhere.

                     Just a little stop at my favorite breakfast place but too late for that but a headset                                         adjustment on Garrett's helmet because the ear pieces were hurting his head. 

          I have to say the campgrounds were beautiful with fifty year planted pines. No one was there and the only sounds was the wind pushing through the pine tops and really took a little time to get used to it. I kept looking up for airplanes!! :)

                                                   Garrett's crossing of the Delaware.

               Cool barn but all I could think of was brain surgery at the start of the nineteen hundreds. You know that had to of not gone too well back then.
      The last thing I was happy for Garrett to of seen was this crop duster buzzing us. These guys are nuts as you can see how low he is while he shoots just over the power lines.
Also I just want to say sorry to my friend Jim for putting the skids on the CO trip...
