I had a WONDERFUL trip the weekend of Thanksgiving, driving through southern IL, middle TN, parts of MS (namely Tupelo), and Alabama (Birmingham). I even had time to stop at a few places along Route 66 in Dwight IL and Odell IL! Pics, etc., will be ready soon.

In the meantime ... a quick note about 2010 ... the trip, as of now, WILL be in August, as I've noted, unless the Binghamton event is a different weekend. So, if you want to meet up along the way, let me know....!

Next week I'll be going through Binghamton to get to Kelsey's aunt's place in Elmira, NY.

The Pocono's aren't far from it and I should be @ home that day.
