If you are in the area come on by!

Meet at the Red Roof Gas Station 12:30pm - ready to leave at 1pm (301 Southport Dr, Columbia, IL 62236-2661 )

I will be riding this year for sure!  Pete will either be on back of Spyder or in the truck, we shall see closer in how he feels.

Cars are welcome as always!!   Can't wait to see everyone.

5 great ghost stories waiting to be shared.

Please RSVP by 10-7-19 so I can get us tables at Joe Boccardi's in Columbia.

Uhhh did you know there is a Fountain Lake monster, he's related to Momo and Big Muddy.   A mysterious parade at Fort De Chartres with peculiar ghosts.  Eagle Mausoleum ghosts that just can't rest!  So much more!

Route subject to change (you know me), I will provide a GPS file when for sure.

Is it OK if I bring some newbies this year?
Especially since it's in Illinois.

Cool!  We'll figure out something to do on Saturday night.  Are you guys tired of Cafe Telegraph?  Maybe supper there then we can hot up the OSP Tap Haus in our hood'.    Or if Joan comes in on Saturday a repeat visit downtown? We can go to Urban Chestnut  or 4 Hands Brewery this time.

We had a great time as always yesterday. The Spook and Scoot is always one of my favorite events of the year.

We were treated to parasailer at the cemetery.  Not much more to say than: Good friends, perfect riding weather and good roads. (oh yeah good food at the end)

Here's a few pictures:

Bob and I had a great time seeing you guys.  Wish we were riding but life got in the way again.  We got home just before midnight. We sailed along for 5 hours.  Enjoyed the 2019 Illinois version.  Here are a few photos I took.

Who's that strange new guy standing alone in the Fort Chartres chapel?! It's me! Thanks for showing my Vespa and me a wonderful day of riding the bluffs of Illinois - it couldn't have been nicer. This was my 2nd ride and I enjoyed it even more than last year! Maggie, thank for the time and energy you put into creating a special afternoon for us all. I'm really impressed by the community you all have built here. Hope to join you again next year.

Hey Jeff, didn’t get a chance to say goodbye and it was nice seeing you again this year.  Didn’t get to talk to you much last year as this year.  Glad you enjoyed yourself.  We are a good group of people here.  Hope to ride with you  again.

Thanks for coming along, Jeff.   Hope we see you on a few more rides in the spring etc.   

I know we rag on Illinois a lot for having bad roads but we are lucky near us there are some of these nice Bluff and upper Bluff farm roads.  Just gotta take them easy.  Never know when a 40 foot combine is coming Ďround the bend :-)
