Galena, IL 61036


They have a ton of things to do, alpine slide, zip line, river cruise, segway tours,  mini golf, disc golf, and bike rentals.

For $40 you can get an adventure package that gives you one ride on the zip line, unlimited alpine slide rides,and one round of mini golf/ disc golf.

Once we arrive at the mountain everyone is free to do their own thing.

This looks like fun. I'm in. We may try to stay overnight. If anyone is interested in doing that let me know. A couple years ago some of looked I to getting a cabin for a weekend and it wasn't too expensive.

Cool. Looks to be a small group going but that is fine with me. Smile

After we leave the meeting spot at the oasis taking 20 all the way out. Should be a nice drive.

See you all on the 8th.

Wish we could make it. I have waaayyyy to much shit to get done around the house.
Feel like I haven't had a free weekend cause my wife doesn't know how to say no to anyone, lol.
