You know,...Illinois. In the empty parking lot over by where they used to have a K-Mart before Walmart put them out of business.

I won't be around Tuesday. I need to finalize packing Tuesday after work. After that it leaves me no time, considering I need to get to bed early (9) because I need to be up at 3am.

Also, knowing how giddy I'm gonna be, I won't be able to sleep Tuesday night. This means I'm gonna have to down a few beers.

It really isn't that bad. I enjoy long distance hauls and have done a few in the past. It's tiring at the end, but I'm always alert behind the wheel.
