Took off from Illinois at about 9:00. We drove about 600 miles
and boondoggled (Sheila says boondocked, not sure which one is right) at a rest
area in Ashland, Kentucky. Tomorrow, we have about 400 miles to go to get to
Zack’s. With an early start, we should get there about 2:00pm.

We were stopped at a crossroads, checking our maps and a woman and her daughter stopped to see if we needed help. She said this area was where she grew up and it is still the family farm. ...
... all night about losing a day of riding. I was hoping to get to see Debbie, but with all our planning and getting ready, she was too far away. We traveled back and forth between Ohio River towns to find topo maps. From big box retailer to sports stores and eventually the public library, we struck out until we went into the C store within a wedge of our motel and there we found Delorme's Ohio. Now we can plot on a map what we've got in text form ...
