Friday, September 8 (Chiefs won the game last night.)
Last posted from Ohio – and since it seemed like we might be playing tourist just a tad too much, we attempted to make some better time. And we did. It’s really easy to do in Nebraska…
And of course, I thought of Neil Young’s song – Everybody Knows This is Nowhere.
Our morning view at Meredith & John’s
As we drove through Ohio, we stopped at Ft. Meigs. Nice museum with some interesting presentations.
Stopped for the night in Angola, IN and due to the hotel’s “free breakfast” being a total loss, we stopped here. Nice people and yummy breakfast.
Illinois was pretty. We chickened out of driving through Chicago on Route 20 – so did an interstate bypass and missed it. We’ll visit Chicago another time.
A lot of our drive through Illinois looked like this.
Crossed the Mississippi River – and we’re in Iowa!
Texas Roadhouse for dinner where we had a great waiter who was just oozing with personality and was fun! Love the cinnamon butter on the rolls.
Best electric and USB hookups we’ve seen so far. Made it easy to recharge all the stuff! (Hampton Inn in Dubuque)
North Fork & Eureka, Iowa. Corn, soybeans and wind turbines.
Welcome to Nebraska! the good life
Posting this in Lusk, Wyoming – so more to come, later.
