It is the Friday of a long weekend, so we planned to overnight no more than 200 miles from Chicago, so we could be heading through by Noon, or early afternoon at the latest. Fortunately, this was one of those plans that actually worked rather well, with an uneventful and speedy transit through the “Windy City.” Today we pass through three States on our cross-country sojourn.
Today will be almost continuous motorway driving, as the departure campground is about 1 mile from I-80 and the arrival campground is about 4 miles. However, the journey through PA along I-80 is simply spectacular, especially with the Fall colours.
Since leaving Metro Vancouver we have either navigated through the mountains or across miles and miles of flat prairie landscape. Yes, we did pass Calgary, but the ring road is literally around the furthest reaches of the suburbs.
Well today is different – we have to survive the hustle and bustle of Chicago. How did we make out?
