Battle for Lincoln


Its going to be a short post today. I’m trying to get some serious milage to make it to my aunt and uncle’s in Elizabeth, IL by tomorrow.  As you can tell by my short time in Indiana I’ve already been hauling ass. 

Looking at their “Welcome to…” signs I think that Indiana and Illinois should fight it out to determine who gets to claim Lincoln.  It could be a contest of studying by candlelight, or rail-splitting, or something like that.  The winner keeps their sign, the loser has to change theirs to “We don’t love Lincoln as much as [winner].”

I’d also like to apologize to the funeral procession I briefly led today.  In my mirror it just looked like a black car.  Then it turned and I realized it was a hearse…oops.
