Occasionally ... well, okay, sometimes bordering on obsessively ... I check the "stats" from the "ClustrMap" and/or the "PageViews".  This morning, the ClustrMap stats indicated the following recent visitors:

You can guess from the title of this post which one caught my eye.

Because I been there.  I know where it is.  I probably have relatives of relatives that live there.

My paternal grandparents and my dad's brother (that would be my uncle) and his wife's family used to bop-over to Chillicothe regularly.  I never understood why.  Perhaps some of my aunt's relatives live there.

I wonder if there are any randonneurs in Chillicothe.
Hmmn, I think I know where I can find a database that might provide the answer.

Oh, in case any old "foamers" read this and the above wiki link ... I've been to and over and past Edelstein, many times.  Of course, I still think of IL-Hwy-40 as IL-Hwy-88 (they changed the number when the governor and his driver got lost because they couldn't tell the difference between IL-88 and I-88 -- one an interstate, the other not; dang big-city types, anyway). 
Chillicother, IL website:
Town has more population than I thought.  I would have guessed 2 or 3 thousand.  On the other hand, it is close enough to Peoria that it may have been providing bedrooms for Peoria for many decades.
