IYC 1985: Monday, July 15th - Near Mukwonago, WI to Bloomington, IL

David, Todd, Ruth R., Tanya and Andrea

 After a real nice breakfast at camp, the gang posed for photos on the double slide and played miniature golf Then we headed on out with the absence of Major & Mrs. Nottle who headed straight to Macomb for committee meetings for IYC. We arrived in Chicago around noon. Stopped first at Central THQ [Territorial Headquarters of The Salvation Army] and looked around. Bought a hatbox [for my uniform hat] & lintbrush [for my uniform] at Trade Dept. We then toured downtown after eating at Mickey D's. Rode the subway, and the "L".
