- Highway 30 East...
A lot of cold rain for a change. But still enjoyable and with good crewing
and help from Kathy who came out to crew another stage. Very enjoyable!
As you can see I have now reached highway 30. Turning 90degrees and
entering that narrow tarmac road which also goes under the name "Lincoln
Highway" (One of US oldest highways) I definitely felt that I was about to
turn another "road-page" of the run - Highway 30 will be my daily route
almost all the way out to New York; about 1 1/2 month of running... so I
better get used to it :-)
The next stages are:

- all the above on Road 47.
12.08: Plainfield (Hwy. 30).
13.08: New Lennox / alternative route via Manhattan.
