   If you are there in the fall you can attend the annual "Turkey Testicle Festival", how is that for Local Flavor.
   An interesting crowd usually attends, a lot of bikes and leather. I saw a chopper with extended forks and a nitrous tank on it one year...ouch!!!

Found this place on the internet.  It is about a 20 minute drive but skips the winding road from Rockford.  There are a couple of restaurants on the way to the plant for breakfast in the morning or dinner on the way home.  An older motel but the room I am in appears to have been recently renovated.  Not a place if you want to be able to walk to the bar as they are two miles away.  Website at

I personally spoke to a gentleman at The Pump Handle Inn today. His prices start at $145 per week and he requires a $100 security deposit against damages, but rooms are on a first come - first serve basis: no reservations.

Here is the link to Oregon's website, with several hotels B&B etc. in the area.  The Byron Station is about half way between Oregon and Byron (so about 5 miles to Oregon or Byron from the plant).

Also, do a search for hotels in Byron, there are only a few in Byron, and the city doesn't have a link to any lodging from it'd web page.

Some folks have asked me about lodging in the area, I said I would put a feeler out.  What is the latest and greatest for a place to sleep?
