Indiana Dunes and Chicago Computer Society

.Next stop on our route after the Techsmith Screencast camp was a presentation to the Chicago Computer Society.  We went thru Elkhart, Indiana on our way and snapped this photo of an Amish recreational vehicle!

We've learned that there isn't much in the way of Campgrounds in the Chicago area, but we have wanted to go to the Indiana Dunes State Park and that's not far.  It's a very nice park, with 50 amp RV sites and Verizon 4G is good.  We liked it!  We even got out of the RV and did a little walking!

Boardwalk to the Beach at Indiana Dunes State Park
On a calm, sunny day you could almost mistake Lake Michigan for a Florida beach!
But, it's not always a calm sunny day!  The lake looked more like a stormy North Atlantic on this day:
For the night of our presentation at the Chicago Computer Society, we wanted to stay a little closer so we found an Elks Lodge in Hobart, Illinois - just south of Chicago.  We're really enjoying staying at Elks Lodges - what can be more fun than a clubhouse!  Parking your house right outside the door of the clubhouse :-)
We had a fantastic reception at the Chicago Computer Society.  They suspended all their normal business and gave us the full 2 hours to present Picasa.  There were about 60 people there which is so perfect.  Small enough that we could really get personal, but large enough to feel like a party!  I wish I had thought to turn our video camera on at the end - I swear the applause was deafening.  We love our job!
