Where I stayed
Well, we had thought we might make it all the way to Joplin, MO today (Sunday), but despite getting an early start (6:30am) under sunny, bright skies in Chicago, we pulled in 15 hours later into Rolla, southwest of St. Louis and about 75 miles northeast of Springfield, MO. We've also had a light, steady rain since St. Louis. Joplin is still down the road a piece, as they say in these parts. But, the point of a trip like this is not just to get from Point A to Point B, but to stop and do things in between Point A and Point B, which is what we've done. The accomanying pictures and videos will show you what we've done. We'll continue posting images with each entry along the way. We hope to be somewhere west of Amarillo, Texas tomorrow night. In the meantime, feel free to drop us replies and we'll answer them all, as we always have.
Hope to check in from Texas tomorrow!
