FIRST DAY ON THE ROAD
Friday, we got a very late start, 12:30 PM, and, as usual, took Il-47 south to I-74 by Champaign, Illinois. Had to stop at the usual McDonald's in Yorkville. For some reason that is always about the time for a bathroom break and get something to eat and drink. And, right now, McDonald's has those great McRIBS!!!
Stopped for gas at the Crawfordsville Pilot station which is usually the cheapest in the area, but it was about ten cents a gallon more than Indianapolis.
Took I-74 to Brownburg, just west of Indianapolis. Would have liked to go farther, but starting about Crawfordsville, we started getting light snow. And, by the last twenty miles, we had a regular snowstorm going on. We were in a line with about twenty cars following a snow plow for safety.
We got off along with a bunch of other cars and checked into the Super 8 for the night.
Not much fun driving in the snow, and dangerous as well.
