Caravan from/through Illinois

We are leaving out on Friday and would love to get a caravan together or join up with one that will be coming through Illinois on the way to the Rally. Excited for this already!

There should be a few folks coming from Indy on Friday morning, headed up to Galesburg and on to Amana.

Works for me. We live ten minutes from the I-74/I-155 interchange. We'd be happy to hop in line somewheres.

These things are a lot like herding cats; eventually something will fall into place - usually at the last minute.

Just checked the route - Indy to Champaign, Bloomington, Peoria and Galesburg, IL, then up to Le Claire, IA and on to Amana. Not sure where the Illinois folks would like to join up but just let us know and we'll arrange something. If you don't have an FRS radio already they come in handy for this stuff.

I'll probably rendezvous with the Indy folks at some point in the journey.

We kind of started a plan last week for this caravan to Iowa. Jwight is staying with a friend somewhere around Indianapolis that Thursday night. Cheryl noted on facebook that there is a Studio 6 on the northeast side of Indy that's reasonably priced. The area it's located in is called Fishers. The single queen is $49. I just asked her for the address but the thought is that we will make that meeting place one if that is at all close to where Jwright will be staying. Anyone wanting to join could meet at the hotel parking lot by what ever time and we will head up from there. Times hotel ext. noting is set in stone. We are planning on staying at the motel Thursday night if anyone else would be interested.
