A Day Across

Day 20 – Shawneetown to Chester, IL – 98 miles

It’s pretty nice to cross a state off pretty much in a day, tomorrow morning we will ride across the Mississippi River into Missouri.  The bad part was since all the flooding in the area we pretty much had to stick to major roads with good shoulders, which were pretty much straight as an arrow and full of cars and trucks whizzing by at 65 mph; not bad for a day but glad the whole trip isn’t just about the shortest route possible.

Our overnight spot, Thank You to The Fraternal Order of the Eagles (roof, shower, beds, A/C, bar, beer; doesn't get much better)
