A ROAD TRIP FROM COPPELL, TEXAS TO COPPELL, ONTARIO
Googlemaps: Joliet Area Historical Museum
After Bloomington, our next stop was Joliet to see the statue of Louis Joliette, visit the Joliet Area Historical Museum, and stand next to the Des Plains River.
Phil had a nice talk with Susan who is a curator at the Joliet Area Historical Museum while standing in front The Blues Brothers (Dan Ackroyd and John Belushi) dancing at the opening scene filmed at the Old Joliet Prison. Dan Ackroyd was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. Phil also got to visit the exhibit on John Houbolt who was the NASA engineer who came up with the idea of Lunar Orbit Rendezvous (LOR) used on the Apollo moon missions.
