We're still formulating the drive's specifics but I wanted to let everyone know that it seems like we've got the basics down.

I think we'll be starting from the Krispy Kreme in Gurnee. From there we'll do some road work and twisty bits to the Jelly Belly Factory, just over the line into Wisconsin where we'll take the free 30 minutes tour.

After easting our fill of free Jelly Bellys we can drive thru Petrified Springs Park (maybe along the lake front south), and end up at THE SPOT drive in for huge burgers and frosty mugs of root beer served carside by car hops.

The Spot can hold about 30 cars on the drive in lot, so lets shoot for 30 plus MINIs.

Jelly Belly tours run after 9am, and The Spot opens at 10:30am. I would think we should start in the morning and end up at The Spot sometime around 12-1.

How does this sound to everyone? (thanks Jeeves for most of the text!)
