Where in IL are you?
I'm in Evergreen park. It's just in the southside of Chicago.
There are a lot of IL members and we have a local/regional club called GLX Great Lakes Xterras.
You just missed our Xtoberfest run at badlands in IN. We have a face book group. Do a search and request to be added. We are pretty active there and its a good place for instant help Q?s.
To post Picts you will need to have it hosted by photobucket, them copy the IMG code and paste it in ur comment.
