MAY 6, SATURDAY
Into Pontiac, past the Meramec Caverns barn which is looking worse for wear. Past the Log Cabin restaurant and to the Illinois Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum where I paid my dues for the association and saw Bob Waldmire's minivan (we we saw so many times before at various festivals. Went through his bus outside and walked around the wonderful square and that beautiful old court house. Drove out to I-55 and got a room at the Super 8.
Went back downtown and saw the Kentucky Derby at the Mill Street Tap, then went to Bob and Ringo's and J & J's Bar. We were happy to find Bull's Place, a bar and gambling place, right by the motel so had a few more cocktails there before walking across the parking lot to our room.
To Towanda. --Road66
