We rode 79 miles to El Paso, IL today, our last Illinois sleep. We started slightly late at 7:10am and it heated up quick. The first 30 miles we rode on rural, deserted farmroads and then we had to cross the Illinois River on busy hwy 150/24. From that point on it seemed to be nonstop traffic, no matter the road.
On the farmroads we passed an awesome bridge and saw a pig farm, a first!
