The Final Miles Across Illinois
Good night from the banks of the Mississippi River. Well almost the banks of Big Muddy. Tonight mules Brick and Cracker and I are camped 10 miles East of Quincy, IL. Thanks Todd and Julie Curry for putting us up (and sending over those sloppy Joes with all the trimmings!)
From here, the plan is to cross Ol’ Man River in the next few days then start riding across our next state – Missouri.
Illinois has been a pleasure to travel through. Folks have been bonkers generous, from putting the mules and me up to writing a poem about our visit.
