Default Autumn Drive

We have decided - at meetings and over the net - to have an Autumn Drive.
Saturday 3rd November

Galena & Surroundings


Thomson Causeway Recreation Area
Savanna (on Mississippi)
Mississippi Palissades State Park
Long Hollow Scenic Overlook
Scales Mound
Apple River Canyon State Park

330 miles

We have to decide if we do a picnic at say Long Hollow Scenic Overlook or we have lunch at some place in Galena. This is what is the next vote ! I would just vote for eating in Galena because this way we do not carry much with us and we can invade Galena and get whatever we want. Galena is a small town - we park the Subarus "down town" and visit it by foot and eat whatever pleases us. We can't expect to all like the same food...Besides, we should spread our "business" around town. We could also go to the sky course and see which Subaru can climb it :-)

Other things that MAY be incorporated depending on what people want. Here's a suggestion
but I think we have plenty to cover and plenty of opportunities for great shots.


It will be an all day event - meaning leaving no later than 7:30 - 8:00 from a central location (Schaumburg), a healthy 2-3 hour drive, then sightseeing, picnic, nature, trails, games etc followed by a drive back. I am aiming for a return to Chicago no later than 22:00 for most of us. Meaning leaving Galena no later than 1900 hours Also assume 250-350 miles of driving.

It will be a motorcade. Which means there will be rules - such as the order in the convoy, speed limits, interdiction of useless, unnecessary and reckless displays of horsepower. You call it. For that - there will be additional notes in the reserved spaces. "John Wayne" personalities need not apply.
