Made it to Chi Town...barely.

Day 37: Matt found his long lost cousin

Made it to Chicago....barely. We woke up this morning at the Comfort Suites in Rochelle, IL and treated ourselves to the usual continental breakfast. We got ready to ride (like we do every morning), and headed for Chicago! Once again, we were expecting rain, but once again, we couldn't find any. We have had such great luck with the weather. We were planning on riding through the city, but were informed that things could get pretty hectic, especially with the "support car," so we decided to ride to the western suburb of Wheaton where we met up with Kelly Schmidt and her parents. They made us some tasty bbq that bedazzled every one of the taste buds that sat upon our tongues. Thank you Schmidt Family for your hospitality and making us feel at home, even all the way in Illinois. We then headed down to the southwestern city of Woodridge where we met up with Bob at The Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. We would like to thank Charlene Mirkiani and The Prince of Peace Lutheran Church for hosting us for our stay in the Windy City. Adam (Matt's 2nd cousin – Charlene’s son), met up with us at the Church and took us to this tasty pizza place called Home Run Inn in Darien for a late night snack...thanks Adam!!! Well..that pretty much sums up our day. Hope everyone is doing well. Have a wonderful morning.

I just wanted you to know that I am become strangely attached to reading your Blog when I start my day-- kinda like it was Bible time.... Glad that you guys made it to Chicago and that the weather has been good to you! Thanks for what you are doing. My nursing friends at the hospital and my daughter cheer you on as well. Hugs and stay safe-Luv, Diane Prindle (from Iowa)
