Pardon my French, but damn damn damn! I grew up in Champaign and my parents still live there. I wish they had this when I was still there and/or when I had a chance to visit, but alas, I will be in Vermont, which is just a tad too far out of the way for a daytrip. I expect a full report with lots of photos! ;)
