The dots are converging on Bushnell

If you could track it by GPS, you’d see it. From north, south, east, east overseas, just around the corner, and all points in between, people are making their way to one of my favorite places on earth: a farm outside of Bushnell, Ill. For the next week, this small “City of Industry” becomes the “City outside Cornerstone.”

Me, I’m waking up in a hotel somewhere near Dallas, unlikely to actually set foot on the grounds for any of the opening bands at the fest later today. Instead, my day will be filled road trip fun: laughing at the same old jokes, stopping at the same favorite spots, and hoping to not have a single Clark Griswold moment.

Enjoy your drive, everyone. And, as much as I want to support the local economy, let’s not do it via speeding tickets!
