By what line do you want me to judge north/south by?

ETA: Eh, pulled out the map, there's a good boundary line formed by the northern borders of Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Going by that line it is north.

Was that a question, or a suggestion for use as a north/south boundary (in which case, I rejected using it as it cuts through states if you extend it westward)?

How about Boo Rochman Memorial Park in Carbondale, Ill? It's dungeons and dragons themed.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

Lots more pictures, from the 30 min or so we spent there on a super-hot day.
