Not a bad run compared to tomorrows trip - as we arrived early and before we could book in we went into down town Springfield and visited The Abraham Lincoln Museum - they may only have a short past compared to ours but they are very good at presenting it ! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springfiel d,_Illinois http://www.visit-springfieldillinois.co m/Lincoln/Museum/ Glad we made the visit - especially as the Motel was out of the way, although clean and comfortable I wasn't ...
