    It was a food truck but they now have a restaurant, fish, burgers, Italian beef, ect. One of my favorite spots, as I mentioned earlier the fish tacos are the jam!!

    If you see a black KTM 950 w/orange crash bars at Starved Rock, that's me and the wife. We'll be up there for the day on Saturday as well.

    Took a nice little ride into southern Iowa, just north of Unionville, Mo. today. I went over that way and visited an old acquaintance. I'm going to try to cover that area some more. Today was mostly blacktops and highways, but there are some dirt roads in that area calling my name.

    I was on 168 for a short stretch last evening. I took a scenic route down to Center, Mo. No plan really, other than getting to Center to drop off a part for a customer. I just turned on random roads heading in the general direction I wanted to go.

    I don't have any ideas for heading to Elmer, since I haven't spent much time in Macon County or Herman myself. When I used to go to Macon for work, I would try to eat at Raspberry's BBQ on the north end of town.

    I just remembered there is a bridge out on 168 between Hannibal and Palmyra. You can still go that way, but will need to use a couple of back roads to get to Palmyra.
