    If Calkidd's idea doesnt pan out, try O'Fallon, IL or Fairview Heights, IL. No it's not right out the front gates of the WSRC but there is also no way all the rooms at these two very large towns are booked.

    There are some folks around the Sparta area that will rent rooms in their houses out to shooters. I normally stay about 1 mile south of Sparta with an older lady that rents out rooms. Last year part of the rooms were rented to people working at the new power plant. A couple of weeks ago she still had 3 rooms available for about $60 per night.

    Frostyman. Were did you find out about her? Were there others where you found her. I have a house rented but others may want to know. I am not sure if the woman I went threw would want her name or info put here other wise I would.

    I found out about this lady renting rooms the first year the Grand was at Sparta. She had a brochure there. I don't think she has had any there since then. For the last several years she has been renting most of her rooms to the people working at the powerplant. Janice Weber is her name and her home phone number is 618-443-2906.

    Don't count out B&B's in the area. I rented a B&B 15 minutes away from Sparta for $70/night and I get breakfast every morning and a snack in the evening everyday. Plus, the property is beautiful and has places to lounge and relax.

    I called the B&B too about Bryan. I told them about his drug habit and lack of personal hygiene. I asked them if they minded be paid with money made by pick pocketing folks in Hollywood. He probably told them some goofy story like he is a cop.
