As you hopefully know, Mermet Springs is located across the border in Illinois. I can’t remember, is Mermet Springs located in Mermet Springs or Mermet? Bueller, Bueller? Either way we tend to stay in Metropolis which is like what, 15 miles away or something like that. Chump change :).
Mermet Springs, just a hop skip and a jump away!
Now for those of you who don’t know… Metropolis, Illinois is like a good 5 and 1/2 to 6 hour drive or you could fly in to Paducah, KY, which would take you a little over 7 hours (so google maps tells me). But sometime the fun in the trip is the experience getting there!
When you get to Mermet Springs make sure you immediately check in. They keep your C-Card until the end. No big deal, at the end of the weekend you get it back. If you go with our group then Deb and Grady get it back and you collect from them. See no big deal. Here are their summer hours in case you’re interested. We are approaching summer quickly after all!
This… this is how you know you’ve made it. And you have to get your picture taken with the giant fish at least once! :).
