Welcome! I love a good Illinois road trip.  I've driven about 75% of the marked highway mileage in Illinois (two people have me beat though), and I'm looking to clinch I-72 from end to end soon!  Welcome from the Joliet area.

Thank you! I already am having a nice time on the forum, feels nice to spill my love for roads somewhere else instead of on paper. I'd say the longest trip I've taken in my lifetime is from Western GA at Columbus all the way to Western IL at Quincy. Don't quite remember it, however, since it was so long ago. Hope you're having a good time too!

You are very welcome. I very much agree with you on the "feels good to spill my love for roads on here instead on paper" part. I cannot for the life of me find another place nice to chat about roads! I have been to Columbus a few times on my way to Alabama. It's a really nice place over there. I think my trip to New Hampshire when I was only 2 years old is the longest trip I took. I don't remember it.

Welcome from Florida! I've never been to Quincy, but I know the area upriver of you very well (grew up in the Quad Cities).
