Yesterday we went to a local zoo here called Niabi Zoo, in Coal Valley, Illinois. This is a nice, little zoo and it was a wonderful fall day. When I say little the zoo does have elephants, lions, giraffes, tigers, leopards, bison, a reptile house and an aviary. Still you can see the whole thing in about 3 hours. But the reason we had our little zoo trip was a bright idea of mine. For a few dollars more than the cost of admission, our family joined as annual members. Why would we do that when we are getting ready to live on the road full time? As members of the Niabi Zoo we get to get into the reciprocal zoo program where we can enter zoos and aquariums across the US for free or half-price, depending on the zoo. Pretty sweet deal fro a traveling family like ours!
