Raining again, since the middle of last night. Time for an off day anyway. Some time next week I should be out of Illinois and into Missouri and then Arkansas. The next big mark to reach after that will be Memphis, Tennessee.Today is for filling up the propane tank in the motor home and moving down to the next Wal-Mart, in Marion, Illinois. I'm watching the rain fall and maybe the gasoline prices, too. Around here gas shot up to $2.74 a gallon, but today I see that it's twenty cents less. Good trend. As long as I'm sucking up gas the way I am it might as well be cheap. This trip is going to leave a carbon footprint so big that Al Gore will be able to see it from cyberspace.
