Taking the long scenic route to Ride 7 destination
Purple weeds come up like crazy all over the place — nice background for the Raleigh
The “other” Casey’s on Illinois Route 1 aka Dixie Highway — the Chicago branch
Word is, a 3rd Casey’s will be built as part of a truck stop but will cause the closure of one of the other two
At one time a Firestone Tire Store — letters re-purposed to spell Fosters
At one time there were dozens of bicycles in the back area, mostly department store types, but one, a Bianchi, showed a tag as a RAGBRAI participant
Pretty much sums it up 🙂
Lots of Stuff — almost none of it new, and most, very well used — but, like JR’s — you just never know what might turn up in there
Proof of Purchase
I was looking for a 10mm combination wrench — Rusty, the owner, assured me than no such item was in the store. In fact, he wanted one himself
After rummaging thru a myriad of tools I tended to believe him — until, in one old coffee can, there was not one, but TWO, 10mm’s. Also a 1/4″ combination wrench.
I bought the one 10mm he put the other in his toolbox
And the price quoted? 50 cents! — well, I gave him more than that!
So, 7 different places, 7 different purchases, surprised myself 🙂
