    From Okawville go south on 160 through Addieville. You will hit IL 15 just past Addieville. Head west to Rt 4, it connects @ St. Libory. Go south to Marissa at the stop sign in front of Reiss Ford turn left (still following Rt.4 ) after three or four miles the road widens to a four lane at the Tilden "T". After the road narrows county road 18 is 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile, turn to your right ( west). Stop when you hear gun shots.

    Or, to confuse you even more, at the stop sign in front of Reiss Ford, turn right. Go to the first stop sign (3-4 blocks), turn left and go through down town Marissa. At the south end of town (by the cemetery) the road turns to the west, but a black top road contunes south. This black top road goes about 4 miles and "T'"'s right in front of the main building.

    I'd investigate taking CR-13 due south from Okawville to IL-15. It will save you about 6 miles one way. Might not be worth it, but I found the back roads to be decent.

    Most the county roads are good, but I figured I'd keep him on marked highways. Once he makes the trip, and feels a bit more comfortable with the area, he can experiment. Threre's probably 4 or 5 different ways to get to the WSRC from Okawville I believe the way I described could be followed on most any map.....less confusion.
