Written Directions

- Starting from the parking lot of Jimmy Johns at 4th Street and Lincoln Avenue in Charleston head south on 4th Street. - Follow 4th Street out of town where it's referred to as Lincoln Highway Road until you get to East County Road 80. - Turn west

Scenery

As with most of Illinois, the scenery consists of farmland and few trees. However, as you work your way further south on this route the more the scenery and elevation changes for the better. You'll enjoy it!

Drive Enjoyment

The road surface along the entire route is good with very few potholes or other hazards. Most of the corners provide great visibility. This area is definitely farm country so be alert to slow moving vehicles and farm implements. If you like to keep your wrist in it be careful, a tractor can really ruin your day. Also, most of the local constabulary aren't overly fond of people burning up their roads on either two or four wheels.

Tourism Opportunities

The route passes through several towns of moderate to small size providing food, fuel and other distractions for the tired rider. You'll also have a chance to check out the childhood cabing/home of President Lincoln if you visit the Lincoln Log Cabin State park (see directions below). Vincennes, Indiana is a city that dates back to the Revolutionary War. Stop and see the George Rogers Clark Memorial as well as Grouseland, the home of President William Henry Harrison and his family from 1803 - 1812. Vincennes also has many other historic sites worth visiting. There are several good restaurants in Vincennes and I heartily recommend Montana Mike's.

I opine that to get the credit loans from creditors you should have a great motivation. But, once I have got a collateral loan, just because I wanted to buy a car.
