I left Kansas yesterday at 8:30 a.m. with very cloudy skies overhead. I had a lovely visit with my family out there - playing games and doing crafts and visiting shops and eating Kansas style barbecue. :)
The trip has been a bit more harrowing than I expected. I made it through MO easily (crossed the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers:) but ran afoul of construction in southern Illinois just east of Effingham. Got shouldered onto an exit ramp by the dense traffic that required a 24 mile detour to recover and get back to my route. The sun started shining again as I drove past the cornfields, though, so it was pretty. :)
I managed to drive all the way to just east of Indianapolis yesterday (8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.). I had intended to stop on the west side of Indy, near the airport with its many hotels but missed the exit. Gotta be patient with my flexible ways if you travel with me. ;)
Today has been chancier, weather-wise. I got to Bedford PA (on the Pennsylvania Turnpike) before I had to give in and stop. The temp was about 31 degrees with dense fog and freezing drizzle. Not so bad if it weren't also dark. :P
Tomorrow, HOME (fingers crossed).
