M had to go home early because of her class tomorrow morning. I, meanwhile, headed to Quincy, Illinois to visit the archives at Quincy University, an almost 5-hour drive. At the time we planned the trip, this seemed like a good idea.
I stopped at a rest stop, not sure where, but the map proves it was definitely somewhere.
Halfway along, I visited Lincoln, Illinois. The courthouse is quite grand. I drove along tree-lined street with many large Victorian homes greatly in need of paint.
The main attraction in Lincoln is a roadside attraction originally created for the old Route 66 days. It is the world's largest covered wagon with a medium-sized Abraham Lincoln sitting atop it.
I was there.
