(It was supposed to be 520 miles. But we messed up...)
After backtracking 52 miles on Route 55, we cut through county roads to get back to where we wanted to be -- Route A, Route B and then Route EE -- hills, curves, a single lane in each direction and a 60 mph limit... and then 18 miles on Jones Creek Road -- much smaller, no shoulder, tighter curves and steeper hills. The house above is typical of those we saw on Jones Creek Road.
In Chicago, everyone wore face masks, some even outside. At our first gas stop in southern Illinois, Joe saw one person wearing one. Further south into Missouri, we stopped at a very busy gas station complex. There had to be 20 people at the pumps, another 20 or more in the store, and others wandering around. We were the only people wearing masks. I have to say I felt quite conspicuous.
