Steve,

Welcome to Illinois! I live right in the middle of the state, Manito. I work in Peoria. I'm still 2 1/2 hours from Effingham. Sean (67 Mustang) lives in Decatur, a lot closer to Effingham.

I just looked on Hurtle's site and these are the locals 75 miles away or less.

radrider FARINA IL 21.83
67_Mustang DECATUR IL 54.78
DaveBoys CLARKSBURG IL 23.51
boss351 NORTH TERRE HAUT IN 71.24
73429MACH POCAHONTAS IL 56.80

I removed bisher, he's in Pensacola, FL now.

Wish you were closer, I'd buy the first round! Take care Steve, and have fun in IL. There's a bar on the east side of I57 in Effingham, they used to serve ice cold mugs of beer for a quarter, but that was in '85. Many road trips from SIU to EIU and U of I. EIU was loaded with women! But that's another story....

You guys are aware he probably made that trip a long time ago, right? That thread is over 11 years old. And the OP hasn't been on the forum since 2006.
