Where I stayed
Can(umleit)on City, a place on the way, has 35 prisons and there is a sign saying "Don't pick up hitch-hikers" - unfortunately we were yakking too much and missed it which is a shame cos I love taking pictures of interesting and different signs
Very few signs give the distances to towns but they do have the route number and what direction (N, S, E, W) which is actually much better than the way we do it because it is a problem if the place you want to get to is not listed.
The middle of the US is basically desert and although it gets very cold there is very little precipitation (similar to the Australian outback) unless it is mountainous. It looks like a moon scape for the most part but we are now in a national forest so back to green and mountains.
We are staying in a motel room that is very small - it is a good thing we get on OK! At least we have a bed each.
