Made it as far as Warrenton, Missouri on day 2. As you can see by the picture, Braddock has become a lapdog. Nice weather and mostly decent roads so far.

John made some balloon animals for the folks who were there and then we were on our way.

Traffic backed up at least a mile. Firefighters, ambulances and TV crews all on the scene. We are very glad to be finally in a dry room.
