Monday, we took Illinois Highway 47 around Chicago. Gas prices were $4 to $4.10 mostly, with one even $4.20.
At Champaign, we took I-74 to Indianapolis where we picked up I-70 and spent the night at Richmond, Indiana.
The next day, it was I-70 through Columbus and we did take the old National Road from Zanesville to Cambridge, Ohio. I'd been on it earlier this spring and this is a great drive. Ate a great pork tenderloin sandwich at Mickey's in Zanesville, which has been there since 1940. Great Y-Bridge in Zanesville and two S-Bridges.
Took I-77 south to West Virginia and paid our $3.75 to drive the turnpike. Spent the night in Mt. Airy, NC, Andy Griffith's hometown.
