Looks like we got a nice crew from the south suburbs. Mokena, Tinley Park, Oak Forest, and you can add Frankfort to that list which is where I'm from. I've made the drive from there a few times but unfortunately I'll be coming from Miami this year. Ugh...

Nice to see people living in the cornfields of Illinois. I am from the SOY BEAN Capital myself. Left as a lad though. Still love our old home on Lake Decatur, grandparents lived next door until they retired to Depue. Now that is a small town!
Let's here it for Warshington D.C.! Still get grief about the invisible "R" that I add to a couple words. Still got family in Decatur and Peoria. Went to Leal (sp) Elementary in the Chamapin/Urbana area.
I'm not sure yet. Either we leave late wed. night and drive through the night to get there by like 10 thursday morning, or we leave earlier and find a cheap place to stay wed. night. But most likely we'll be driving through the night because my friend will probably have to work on wed.
I'm in Belleville. I might be going alone. My fiance doesn't have the vacation and neither one of us can really afford it. I just said F-it and filled out the volunteer app. If I get picked I'm probably going it alone.
It makes me sad that I'll have this experience without him, but at the same time it's sort of thrilling to think of going it alone and meeting new people.
Anyway, I may be a Bellevillian with room for a passenger or two that could use the gas money.
