We finally found our first sanctioned bus event to attend this year. It is called Dixie Bus and it is held in Mount Vernon Ohio. The Ohio Valley Tribe is sponsoring this event the date is Aug 7 to 10 at the Rustic Knolls Campground. This is a short run from Chicago only about 375 miles taking the secondary roads. We have decided this is they way to go since folks drive 80 mph in Chicago. There is also a music festival during the same time called the Daniel Decatur Emmett Music Festival. Mr. Emmett wrote the classics Dixie, Old Dan Tucker, Blue Tail Fly and Turkey in the Straw. . . and as you may have guessed….. he hailed from Mt. Vernon Ohio.
