Welcome and greetings from another Salem puller, and from folks that grew up in Illinois. Some might argue that we have not grown up yet.....But thats okay.

Just about an hour and a half North in the Quad Cities here. Lot of good places to go between here and there.

Since I have you "all" listening.... Where can I go on here to find some good travel routes (easy for a first time "long haul") truck stops for gassin up, lighter traffic, etc. I'm driving from central il to the panhandle for the first time. We've only had the TT out 5 times so far (freakin love it) but they've all been fairly short trips, 3-5 hours 3-4 days.
