... to Mt. Sterling, IL. I was really hoping we'd encounter a Starbucks or a Dunkin' Donuts in the very least, but it wasn't meant to be....an hour and fifteen minutes of cornfields later, we arrived in Mt. Sterling, population 1900, and settled into a McDonald's for their wi-fi. We're staying at the fairgrounds tonight and if they'll let us, we're going to stay there the whole weekend too.
Driving into Bushnell was wildly nostalgic for us...we used to drive here every summer for a music festival that John's old band played. The festival was a week long, on a pig farm out of town, and brought in thousands upon thousands of people. My last festival was in 2004, John's was 2005, and the festival folded just a year or two ago after a long run.

I am not a fully "active" member by LDS standards, but I do go to church whenever I can and my wife (not fully active ...
After leaving Nauvoo, we drove a little ways to Carthage, Illinois to tour Carthage Jail. Carthage Jail is where Joseph Smith, the LDS prophet, was martyred. It was sad to be in that same room. It was kind of cool though, because I had to be in a reenactment of the martyrdom of Joseph Smith a couple weeks later.It was a really interesting experience, besides the screaming babies that were in our tour.
After touring the jail, we got back in the car, and headed back to Chicago.
