Day 1

It''s time for another Husker Road Trip! Enjoy a delicious dinner and intriguing CLUE performance at the BARN III Dinner Theater this evening. This farce-meets-murder mystery begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party. Blackmail and Murder are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Clue is a comedy whodunit that will leave both fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out. . . WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT? Overnight Morton, IL.


Day 2

We continue towards Champaign, IL, today, but not without a few interesting, fun stops. In Bloomington, we'll get a little Rte 66 history as we see the famous "Deadman's Curve" and Sprague's Service Station/Gift Shop. We'll stop by the Cruis'n with Lincoln on Rte 66 Visitor Center in Bloomington. The center celebrates the historical connection to Route 66 and Abraham Lincoln through an Interpretive exhibit. Mid-day will find us at Hardy's Reindeer Ranch. Have an up-close encounter with a herd of authentic Alaskan reindeer; a delicious BBQ lunch will be enjoyed In one of their historic barns. This evening, we head to the stadium to see all the action of the Huskers vs the Fighting Illini'.! Overnight, Urbana
