Moonshine Run

No, this has nothing to do with bootleg liquor.

Need to find a date for a one day, Saturday, run to the Moonshine Store. I am in need of a Moonburger.

This would be for locals around the central Illinois area, or who can get there in an early morning ride. We need to be at the Moonshine Store by 10:30 if you want to get a burger, the grill closes at 12:30 on the dot, no if's, and's or but's.

I figure two meeting points. Legacy HD in Effingham for those coming from the west, and Wabash Valley HD in Terre Haute for those coming from the east. Meet up at the dealerships by 9:00, KSU 9:15 for a flat run to Moonshine. It is about an hour from either dealer. Sorry folks, the roads in that part of Illinois are pretty flat and mostly straight.

Edit: Looks like Vincennes, IN is a good meeting spot from the south. No dealer, but it is also about an hour (per Google) from the Moonshine Store

I can come from the west. Need someone from the east who can lead the way to Moonshine, IL.

Need to find a date for this, Moonburgers are well worth the effort.
----------------------------------

Date is official, July 18th. Meetings are quasi official. The only one I will claim is at Legacy HD in Effingham at 9:00, KSU at 9:15. This is for folks coming from nearby, or from the West. Others are up to folks organizing from the other directions.

I booked a room at the Best Western in Effingham for Friday. Folks coming from the West are free to do the same if they wish. Lotsa hotels in Effingham.

Im in. What day are you thinking?

Dont like leading but would be agreeable to scouting the route ahead of time and in case of emergency could show the way. Terre Haute or Vincennes doesn't really matter.

Right now, I am thinking July 18. Trying to verify if the Queen of Swag can make that date.

I could meet in Vincennes or Terre Haute, either way works for me. Would even offer a garage and a place to crash for a couple of people. I live on the south side of indy. TH is about an hour and a half away via superslab, Vincennes a little longer but better ride, maybe 2-2 1/2 hrs.

How far south of Indy are you Bleachy ?

Would it be too far out of my way to head to your place than hanging the left in Looeyville ..

PM me if you prefer

I don't know if I can do this that close after SW but I'll try! Looks like an 8- one way for me so I can bust ass Friday evening after work somewhere, crash for a few hours and then meet up for the morning KSU. My biggest issue will be having burned all my time off. Is this just a Saturday lunch ride, hotels are your problem?
