About 215 miles from Chicago - 212 miles from Cincinnati -  140 miles from St. Louis - about
100 miles from Indianapolis, and for you city folk, here's the best directions I've got:
Git yourself to exit 119 on Interstate 70.  Only 18 miles to go!  Exit 119 is also IL-130 go South
3 miles and take a left  on HAZEL DELL Road which is also known as CR-4.  After approx
7 miles, CR-4 becomes IL-49.  After 1.7 miles, take  a Right onto E 400th Road which is
also CR-26.  After about 3.5 miles take a left onto E 400th Road  which is also CR-11.
Wheeeee, having fun yet?  After 2 miles, hang a right on N 600th Street.  1 mile down the
road you'll be at a stop sign, just look to the left and try to find a place to park-you're at the
Moonshine Store!  It's a great time finding your way and you'll feel a sense of adventure.

When you're passing through the small (don't blink) town of Hazel Dell, be sure to
stop at the Bakery at 119 South Pine St and get a slice of home made pie from the owner
Kathy Smith. Home cookin' at it's best and you won't be disappointed.

If you get lost, call 618 569-9200 and ask someone to guide you on in.  Jimmie Staten spends
a fair amount of his time giving telephone directions to first timers.  In 2003, CBS Sunday
Morning broadcast a story about the  store which widely publicized this small country place.
People from all 50 states have signed the guest book located at the checkout counter.  On a
visit in 2006, I talked to people from Missouri, Florida, Indiana, and Kansas while eating lunch
at one of the dozen picnic tables next to the store.
