We had a great trip from Springfield to DuQuoin; 218 miles.  In the heart of farmland, we had to pass some type of farm implement on the road quite a few times.  Had a lunch stop at Mid America Motorsports in Effingham.  The venue at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds was great.  Shade trees all over, which was helpful since now the weather has turned to the hot and humid side as we get farther south. 
We're actually staying in Marion, IL tonight and this evening for dinner Cherry Bomb hosted a dinner at a 17th Street Grill (bbq joint) for us, the Memphis Mob, some of the Year One guys AND Kenny Wayne Shepard, who is riding with the Year One group.  Dinners on this tour are marathon deals anyway with hoards of people inundating every restaurant in town, but when you have a group of 40, forget about it.  I had to excuse myself at 10:00 so I could finish my video and blog for today!  I wish I could hang out every night, but business is business. 
Bowling Green, KY tomorrow, about 218 miles away.

See you then!
