    Just curious, I have been around this forum a few dozen times, and I can't seem to find anyone from the southern Illinois area. Is this a dead area for CK5ers? I would think that, with the Shawnee National Forest down here, there would be someone that calls this area home.

    So, what about it? Anyone?

    I'm from right between you both (Granite City) but am currently living in Delaware. Chances are good that I will be moving back in the summer to Scott Air Force Base

    Can anyone saaayy... Sauget?

    I lived in St. Louis for 6 years and worked for an Engineering firm there. I had to be "on assignment" at the WG Krummrich plant in Sauget for about 2 years. Right near the T-T bars! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I live in Columbia, MO now. There is supposedly an area near Granite City - mostly mud pits though.

    I live in Fairview Heights. I'd be curious about something in Shawnee? Got anything in mind?

    I've got friends that 4-wheel from Freeburg, Smithton, Belleville, and around here.

    Where at in southern IL, Carbondale?

    Actually, Herrin. 15 minutes from Carbondale (where I work)
    See, the problem is that I don't know anyone with a 4x4 down here, and so I can't find anything in the Shawnee. I have heard rumors that there are places to wheel, but I have yet to find them...

    I saw that new Hustler Club on my way out to pick up a tranny & transfer case from a guy in Fairview Heights last Sunday.

    Neil, we need to go check that one out!

    I live 5 mins from the husler club. It used to be Deja' Vu, a national chain, and The Jewel Box before that. Back then,4-5 years ago, it was a metal building with a gravel parking lot. Not that I know anything about it.

    I drive by the place everyday on my way to and from work.

    And he ain't lying about the 'hood. In high school my camaro was stolen and was found stripped and burned /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif out about 3 blocks from the boobie bar. On the other side of the interstate is where Assumption High School used to be. Now it is a minimum security prison.

    Now there is some irony in that somewhere! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Todd, where in Fairview did you buy the case and tranny, I might know the guy!

    Ok, so you know where the prison is. If you start back east on 64 towards fairview, about 1/2 mile from the prison on the same side you can see what use to be a neighborhood. It's now a bunch of leveled homes. I grew up there for 16 years. The lone white farmhouse between the prison and the old neighborhood belongs to my dad still. Wanna buy it? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
