Lets play.... name that rotted vacuum line!!!

I found a super dry rotted vacuum line that runs from the top if the throttle body to, what seems to be, the cruise control module by the abs stuff. The problem is, i don't see a matching dry rotted end hanging anywhere, or a nipple explosed. Can you guys give me hand to where it goes?

Pic attached because its worth a thousand words, and i don't type well on the phone.

Well, you guys win. Apparently it is a very common issue here (and on numerous other vehicles). This one is so rotted that when i start the truck, it sucks the line flat at the tb and seals any possoble vacuum leak. Since i never tried feeling if air came out at my feet or on the windshield, i never noticed it only worked on the vents.

My blower motor whines like a banshee so i didn't run it to long till now, when i pulled it to see what was wrong with it. I still have no idea because out of the assembly, it turns soooo smooth and quietly when i ran power to it. Anyways, i had to run it to out in freon ans of course, rooooooooooooooohhhhhh wwwwwwaaaaawawawawawaaaaaaaa, but the compressor clutch kicked in and the little meat thermometer in the vent dropped to 55 real quickly.

I think i am going to change the blower resistor board first because the motor only comes on in 3 and 4.

Anyways, thanks fellas. I suppose i will take the old girl to get inspected on wednesday so i can start driving her properly (not just down to the pier at the end of the road and back).

And my oldest son is going to be happy. He took her to the pier yesterday and said this truck doesn't feel like a tiny truck, it feels bigger and seemed to enjoy driving her so i imagine i will get stuck with the camry more often than not.
