I think the only thing Lincolnland needs to round out this family experience is the World's Largest Ball of Twine. Really.

Wouldn't the penny-crushing machines at Lincoln Land be kind of redundant?

Penny-crushing machines - thats hillarious. Never thought of it that way.

Never going to happen. I live fairly close to Lincoln and the thought is absurd.

I agree with the barber. It's a bad joke at best.

On that last thread there was a link to a powerpoint presentation.

Make sure to check out slide #69... Abraham 'Twinkle Toes' Lincoln

And slides 25-30 show different views from the top of the statue. Of course, in central illinois the view from 350 feet up is... NOTHING!
