Monday, August 2, 2021—First New Adventure in 2021

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.

On the road again…

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.

First day’s route
Entering Missouri
Kay did most of the driving
Illinois had great roads

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.
