I got a fairly early start-7:00 AM, not bad. We said our goodbyes and even my grand nephew, Noah got in on the act. The route I took was designed to get me as much riding in Illinois on US 50, so I went straight south on two lane highways to Olney, IL where I headed west on US 50. It made the trip to South County St. Louis considerably longer. It was 360 miles to the hotel. I got in at 3:00 PM.

It was a fairly uneventful trip with the only crummy time having to ride the interstates to get around St. Louis. I caught a couple light showers and put on the rain gear for a couple hours, no big deal. It was overcast the whole way so that kept the heat from getting too bad. That's probably my biggest concern, super hot weather in a lot of the states I'll be traveling in, but so far so good.

Tomorrow I ride to Paola, KS, south of Kansas City where I'll meet up with my brother Jim.
