The reason I asked is because the road looked familiar.
I had left Moonshine a couple of years ago and the GPS took me to a road that looked like that minus the water.
I did ride on it and it took me to a black top road.
I can't tell you where I was.
Once that happened I just shut off the GPS and rode.
Sometimes I like to get lost and enjoy seeing where roads take me.

We usually get cold weather with heavy overcast, wind, spitting rain........ although..... a couple of years ago we had great weather with sunny skies.
Ya never know what you're going to get in early April.......

I always head (first thing) to find the Amish and those home made pies with the home made ice cream on top. The Moonshine burger can wait !

No matter where you go, there you are.

Hidden secret for amazing pies in the area is West Union Cafe in West Union, Il. (on Rt 1)
I make it a point to stop there after Moonshine.
Moonshine burgers are ok to me, but I honestly don't go for the burgers.
On the other hand I do go to West Union Cafe for the pies.

Here is a tip for first timers. Most GPSs won't get you there if you type in Moonshine IL. Use the mailing address which is 6017 E. 300th road Martinsville IL.

Let's see here if my memory serves right now that I'm another years older.


If a six pack of Coors Light caused you to stagger all around the motel in Wise, VA what might the effects of a couple ounces of moonshine be? Hmmm, I would go just to be the fly on the wall and watch....but maybe you've been practicing as you usually say lol.
