This is our lovely view from Myrtle.
We had a long drive along U.S. 44 through Missouri today. We decided to drive until we dropped, and we lasted 6 hours. We both are paying for it now. I have two things to say about route 44. First, if you see this sign...don't believe it.
Second, if you decide to ride a motorcycle along this road, be sure to wear a face shield unless you enjoy the feeling of bugs between your teeth. lol. There was no taking pictures through the windsheild today.
There is very little to write home about today. We did cross the great Mississippi River from Missouri to Illinois.
We are watching the weather forecasts now, and it seems we may actually end up spending a night or two or perhaps three in hotel rooms between here and home. The days are balmy as we head north, but it seems the nights oft times drop below 0.
