      I'm from Decatur originally left when I was 13 I think back in 96. Went to California, then moved to Idaho for a couple years probably around 05 or so. Stayed for a couple years then moved back to Decatur. It was horrible having kids there. Always paranoid they were gonna get hurt so I moved to Colorado. Now I'm in New Mexico about an hour from Colorado and will be going back to Colorado when I get my taxes back hopefully. Colorado has been the best even if it is a struggle, it's way better for my kids

        I gotcha. I'm actually from Metamora. My car came from Pekin though. You had to have seen it at some point. It used to sit on Sheridan just up the little hill.

                  Im from Monee about 7 miles from Park Forest. My wife's family still in Park Forest. NOT what it was in the 70s and early 80s. I used to work at the Sears Auto Center there, '87-90. then went to work for a while at South Oak Dodge. Now live in Kankakee County out west of Kankakee. (been in this house since 98) and work as a mechanic for this miserable state.
                  I told my wife 30 years ago when we were still boyfriend/girlfriend that I would never live in Crook County.
                  BTW I'm about 18 mi from Wilmington, heard that one mentioned pages back, used to work in Joliet.
                  I know this is old thread, any of you still around?

                          I'm still here. And still from Park Forest. My Mom when she moved back up from Florida lived in Monee just outside of the downtown. When I was visiting sometimes I'd see a Maroon and black 62 Imperial LeBaron driving around. One time I saw him at the Post Office and had just enough time to say Love the Car before he took off.

                          Ya I miss being up that way but I'd sure never live there again. Great place to grow up in the 70s and 80s. Sears and the auto center are long gone, and they've turned the Plaza into a little town center. Very weird. Roads go right through it now.

                            I sure wouldn't want to go back to monee nowadays.
                            And park forest,now that they closed down rich east, that town will really swirl the drain.
                            I went to Crete Monee HS, graduated mid 80s.
                            back then PF was like 2 seperate worlds separated by sauk trail.
                            There is a big time slant 6 guy that lives in PF near rich east.
                            My in laws live north of rich east and the old racquet club, between sauk trail and orchard.

                            I grew up in West Lincolnwood, a couple blocks from Rt 30. The whole place is heartbreaking. I feel bad that RE is closed, that's where I went to high school. Park Forest has such high taxes and the present governor of the state seems like a crook. Glad I'm out of there.
