Across IL and into MO
A good leisurely pace yesterday. When I looked at the map last night I was kind of amazed at how far I had not really gone the entire day. But I finished crossing IL and -- most important -- made it past the nightmare that was St Louis rush hour traffic.
I stopped to shoot a scrap metal yard that fascinated me for some reason and heard a guy yell from the Road behind me. When I turned around he shouted, "Take our picture!" So I did. I also met the guy who rescues rabbits. At a roadside bar further along, the bartender asked me, "Did you meet the strange man who rescues rabbits?"
Today I'm headed towards Joplin. That's about 200 miles across MO, which is easily doable at normal highway pace but may be tricky the way I'm moving along. Supposed to be good stuff to see in MO. But first, top comes off the Defender. Forecast: sun!
