NC Bound Spring 2013: March 19th-- Part 1: Running Il.-47

Overall mileage on the 2011 Malibu is 17,072, and set the trip odometer to zero.  Drove Il-120 to Il-47 and south.

Gas in Woodstock, Illinois, at $3.90 and $4 in Huntley and Stark's Corner.  $3.68 in Yorkville and Morris.  Illinois Highway 47 is usually one of the highest gas prices in one of the highest price areas in the country.

Of course, the tunes were playing, interspersed with the radio.  During the course of the day, I listened to Beautiful Loser by Bob Seger, who bummed a ride on the trip (was in the CD  player when I left), the Jimi Hendrix tribute and the Lumoneers CDs.

Bob Stroud's Ten at Ten today was to 1975.  Listened to the first part on the Drive at 96.9 FM and the rest on 97.1 FM, sister stations.  The first comes in well at home and second as you get farther south'

ONE OF THESE NIGHTS--  Eagles
VENUS AND MARS/ ROCK SHOW--  Paul McCartney
SKY HIGH--  Jig Saw

DREAM WEAVER--  Gary Weaver
MAN ON SILVER MOUNTAIN--  Rainbow  (Coz always gets me on Rainbow songs)
OLD DAYS--  Chicago
LOW RIDER--  War (A great song for any kind of cruise.)

FOOL FOR THE CITY--  Foghat
PLAY ON LOVE--  Starship
HOUSES OF THE HOLY--  Led Zeppelin

Can't Drive Down the Road Without Listening to My Tunes.  Just Ask Liz.  --RoadDog
