I found an interesting destination and am thinking about taking a ride out to it sometime this summer. The Superman Museum in Metropolis, Illinois.
Metropolis, Illinois is 9½ hours via US 50.
Of course I don't currently have a date in mind. I was just wanting to put this out as an idea and see if anyone was interested. Since the ride is so long we'd probably need to get a room for the night. There is a Harrah's Casino and hotel there (which is probably spendy) And I located a super 8 that is around $85/night. Perhaps there are cheaper rooms available but I didn't want to bore anyone with useless details if no one is interested but me.
So if this sounds like something you might be interested in let's think about some dates that work for everyone.
I have a couple friends locally that are interested in doing this ride and I thought I'd post this here and see if anyone wanted to meet us along the way or join up at the destination. Maybe someone would like to make a longer journey and meeting us at a rendezvous point here in Kansas City and go with us. I'm thinking possibly mid to late May. Would probably leave early Saturday morning and return to KC late Sunday evening.
