I am new and slowly navigating the site and trying to do it right. I am a small farmer from Hoopeston-Wellington, Illinois area. South of Kankakee about 40 minutes. West of Indianapolis about hour and a half. 45 minutes to Lafayette, Indiana and same to Champaign, IL. I live about 6 miles west of Illinois-Indiana state line. Any members on the site in my geographical vicinity? Thanks.

Used to have a Sunoco station in Hoopeston years ago ..... and it switched to Kerr Magee I think ... then it closed. I am from Hoopeston area.... north of Danville about 30 miles.

I am from Tilton just south of you and know a few people up your way and one from Hoopeston that also collects petro. I even know a 2 or 3 from Wellington. Welcome aboard there is a lot of knowable people on this site.

Great to know, bustermonty. Once we get to Lafayette, Indy is no time to get there. I prefer to go to Indy from Danville - less traffic.

George - I am familiar with Tilton. I get my beans in the ground, we need to meet for coffee or something.

That will work for me but don't tell the governor or he will have us locked up. I have a cousin that farms north of you east of Milford.
