We have arrived to the edge of the iconic Mississippi River at Chester, Il.
Service is poor so pictures have to wait. We are so happy to be moving again after waiting out the weather for too long at Carbondale. I traveled with Peter, Amy, and Liam for the most part of the day.
We stopped for a second breakfast in Ava, called the “Hungry Bear”. It was nice, but I couldn’t finish the eggs, biscuits & gravy and potatoes. By 9:30 we were moving again and we only stopped a couple of times before arriving at Chester at 2:00 PM.
We staked camp at the “F.O.E.”. The Eagles. They have a bunk house that sleeps up to 9, but it is very small. I’ve chosen to set up a tent, the bunk house is too small. A total of 49 miles and very easy hills. A total of 1,250 miles in past 4 weeks.
