    Faifield "was" a beautiful little town until the gurus got there. That town looks like it has been raped. So sad. Graduated in 61 got out as soon as I could. The town squares look alike thats for sure.

    I'm sure, since you are known far and wide, you could be granted dispensation:D

  5. I grew up in the Fairfield area too (Richland). Been to Gulfport more than once. We used to party at the Pzazz in Burlington and hit Gulfport after 2am.

    Anywhere along the river is good. I haven't been to Burlington, Nauvoo, Ft.Madison in forever.... Mt.Pleasant / Salem might be good, just because it's where 218 and 34 cross.

    Im down for middle April or anytime in May but if we wait till May it'll be too close to Rust Revival (Breeders house party).

    And River front would be freaking sweet, Davenport has a great area but if we are going more south then Onelow its on you, you are the thinker here.

    Like the one on the bluff side of the road with the scenic overlook you have to be part mountain goat to climb? Usually isn't too busy and had plenty of paved parking as I recall. The rest of the roadside parks were pretty much gravel and sand. There's a pretty good size park in Nauvoo proper too but they'd probably frown on open alcohol there if anyone was so inclined, the roadside parks down river would probably be safe.

    I don't know...... the Davenport cops used to be pretty hard ass to us Illinois guys. We got escorted back to the Centennial Bridge a time or two and we weren't "doin' anything wrong". Honest, my foot slipped off the clutch pedal!

    With this many of us this close, I'd say the chances are good of something "popping up". :)
