Shortly we'll be on the road to Springfield, Illinois, for a Sons of Confederate Veterans meeting. Planning on taking the old "cruise car," the '03 Malibu, which is the one we took the whole length of Route 66 back when we retired in 2006. It has been "retired" to local running around these days, replaced by the '11 Malibu. One thing nice about this car is that it has a cassette player, so we'll be able to listen to some of those.
We'll pick up Route 66 104 miles from home in Dwight, Illinois, and then will drive the Mother Road to Springfield, bypassing Bloomington-Normal as there is very little to see there.
If early enough, thinking of eating at the Palms in Atlanta, if not, we'll be "forced" to have a couple, three Cozy Dogs in Springfield.
On the Road Again. --RoadDog
