We were essentially packed and ready to leave by mid-morning; but there were still a few things to take care of. Because of today’s rain, the window washers were postponed until late August, a trade-in iPhone was packaged for return, and Kay took care of some board duties before a “cut and color.” Upon her return, we departed for Marion, IL, shortly before 1:00 pm.
Our route took us east via I30 to I40 to I55, and then north to I57 all the way to Marion, passing through Arkansas, Missouri, and Illinois, arriving a few minutes before 7:00 pm.
After checking in at the Quality Inn (2 stars out of 5), we walked across the street to enjoy really good vegetable plates at Cracker Barrel; I had forgotten how good their cornbread was. After watching a few YouTube videos, it was bedtime. The Tunnel Hill State Trail awaits us tomorrow.
