We stayed in Effingham @ the Super 8. It was a last minute decision, instead of getting up before the crack of dawn on Saturday and driving like crazy.

From the motel, it was approx an hour to the Moonshine store, where we arrived at 8:30, parking right in front.

The next order of business was home made pie and home made ice cream from the Amish vendor - located directly across from the store. That was so good that it should have been illegal !

Left around 11:30. People were still coming in. Word has it that 3,016 Moon burgers were sold on Saturday.

Here's a photo taken at 8:30am.

It should be on everyone's bucket list to attend one of these events. The roads in IL are very boring and the deer can't tell time so they will cross the roads at all hours.

The event is worth the effort. Go, eat, socialize, and buy a commemorative T-shirt. I went in '13 and enjoyed the roads in West Kentucky on the way there and back.

April 9th is the Moonshine Lunch Run this year, is anyone interested in going? I am 1 hour and 21 minutes from Martinsville and this will be a good little ride for me. Friday night fire, beers and BBQ at my house is always an option.
