Cobden is approximately 60 miles South/Soutwest of the Rally location near Benton. MapQuest places the shortest route at 55 miles.

Up till this year, it was held at Moraine View State Park in LeRoy Illinois. This is in the Bloomington / Champaign / Rantoul part of of the state. The park is currently closed and Jack is looking at alternative sites trying to keep it in the same general area.

I shouldn't try to respond to questions while watching television, I misread your question when writing my first response. To give you an approximate idea on mileage to the North-Central Illinois Rally in June, it will likely be somewhere between 225 and 275 miles from Cobden based on some of the possible locations that have been discussed.

Whittington, IL -- Great location

Steve, what a great location you've chosen for our Midwest Rally in May!

Nancy Mac

Some destinations and things to do around Whittington/Benton and Southern Illinois in addition to local antiquing, dining ... camping, relaxing .... You can do much more than what is listed here ... I just had to stop somewhere.




Enjoy!A bit of a longer drive -- more like a full day trip or an add on destination before or after the rally:

I will add a few of my favorites as well -- I am about 55 miles South of Whittington.

While it has fallen into disrepair recently, the legal tides have cleared and it looks like the cross will most likely be restored -- Bald Knob Cross of Peace, Alto Pass, Illinois (63 miles)

Ferne Clyffe State Park, Goreville, IL (40 miles)

Giant City State Park Lodge, Makanda, IL (53 miles)

Lambert's Cafe, Sikeston, MO (106 miles)

Ken Lake State Resort Lodge and Park, Aurora, KY (120 miles)

The Great River Road in Southern Illinois (suggestion to begin in Monroe County and work Southward)

Popeye's Hometown, Chester, IL (66 miles)

Superman's Hometown, Metropolis, IL (76 miles)

Lincoln Park, Jonesboro IL (home to the third Lincoln-Douglas Debate) --<57 miles>

There are many other attractions. The above are among my favorites where I take visitors to my home.

Kevin

Retro ...

The Atomic Home is a really cool shop and the items in it really are genuine. They aren't newly made to look retro.

You'll have fun picking out things for your Flying Cloud.

The owners are nice people, too.

Midwest Rally/Rend Lake Rally Prizes

soldiermedic, we'll be in Western Kentucky the weekend of the "Branson Spring is in the AirForums" rally so we're sorry that we'll miss that rally. Gosh, darned, guess we'll also miss our opportunity to win the much heralded sombrero/dip/appetizer fiesta server prize.

However, in May for the Midwest Rally prize table, we will contribute a sampling of Darn Hot Peppers products from Rancho Bella Vista in Cobden, Illinois Darn Hot Peppers: All natural fresh and dried specialty hot peppers. They have wonderful locally grown dried peppers, seasoning, flavored honeys and jams and salsas.

We'll see you all at Rend Lake in May or Prairie Pines at Rantoul in June or Branson in the Fall.

Safe travels,

maccamper crew of 2

I LOVE HOT PEPPERS.

I gotta win that prize.

Looks like this rally is very slow coming together, but should pick up speed now that warmer weather is on the horizon. I was at the St. Louis RV show today and talked to alot of campgrounds about rallies in MO and IL.

I will be there, but wife will be on a retreat that weekend. Might be boys weekend with AJ the dog. I am going to try to make it, job searching right now, so it will depend on that. I gave a guy your card Steve. He has a late model Stream that has a leak that Bill Thomas is having problems with. His name is Bill.

FYI

I just heard on the news tonight that our new improved governor is re-opening seven state parks due to more people doing "stay-cations"

Not to throw a wrench in the works, but if there's a chance that Moraine View is one to reopen.

An announcement is due tomorrow 2/26/09

Lev,

This rally is being held five weeks before Morraine View with the respect that Morraine View was still going to be held. This is no way a rally to compete against it or to take its' place. We just wanted to offer a rally for midwest streamers in May since there wasn't anything going on.

Steve

Sorry about that.

I think maybe I posted that in the wrong place.
