This is what makes those road trips so darn great.Thanks for the tips and links guys, keep them coming as we won't be going until probably late April or early May. To the poster who suggested the Carbondale area, we did that last year, but due to our own fault (too much riding and a lot of rain) we never saw a single winery, but we did stay in a very cool cabin for a night. The southern end of IL has some nice riding, and a couple ferry crossings to boot. Too often what happens is we plan too many miles in a day, stop too often, get a little lost, and end up riding too late, IMO anyway.
The Datsun Z car club in Kansas City meets with the St Louis club in Hermann at the winery every year. Good time. Awesome view over the bluffs of the Missouri river.
