We are leaving Friday evening and heading west. We talked with Zuma! about this at an earlier event and he intimated a lust for the adventure. So, we decided to share it with all our friends in the WGA by making daily posts of our progress and adventures here and daily updates to our WGA photo album. Feel free to add your questions and comments as we go. This will be an 18 day adventure; 12 days going, 6 days returning by a more northern route through Vegas and Denver. It promises to be great fun.

Don't get lost going through St. Louis! wink

Rt. 66 was a part of childhood trips from northern Illinois to Springfield, St. Louis area, as far as Joplin. Even travelled some of the same route last year.

We'll be following your great adventure!

I hope you two have a lot of fun. You can always post some pictures too. Hint, hint. I hope someday I can make that trip as well. At least part of it. Be safe.

I am somewhat jealous, but then again we are hitting Vegas and St George Utah in November. Enjoy the trip.

Here are some notes on how we have prepared for the big adventure. We started be investing a couple of three day weekends in completing the closest portion of the journey. We started in Chicago early on Saturday morning and followed a bookmarked trail down to Springfield on one week end and picked up there on the next. This brought us into St Louis on a Sunday morning. We finished up on the near side of Rolla, which is where we will be picking the trail up this Saturday. Our finds to this point are listed in the Bookmark here. Photos are here .

We have created seperate bookmark lists for each state since there are too many geocaches for a single list. We will create the pocket queries as we go. We have loaded each of our GPS units with the latest Maps & POI from Garmin as well.

Should there be a need to contact us [heads-up on a great cache nearby, etc.] use PM, email rhandley[at]execpc[dot]com, or phone (414) 737-6150.

Time is getting short, it is time to start packing.

On the road again... (Willie Nelson)
We arrived here in Yorkville abot 9:00PM. We are about 35 miles from Dwight and Route 66. We will be retracing about 200 miles of Route 66 into St. Louis. We hope to get that far by Noon. Tomorrow's update will be featuring the Missouri Ozarks. Photos will be forthcoming. ~T&tb

We hit the road at about 6:00 AM. It was 49 degrees and a dense fog covered the road for a little better than an hour. We made our way to St. Louis at about Noon and headed on down I44 (Rt 66 in an earlier life) to Sullivan and Cuba for a day of Geocaching. Cuba is a community that offers dozens of photo ops as it boasts a rich history much like Atlanta, IL. We Located one cache in Sullivan (The Fake) and moved on to Cuba. The Murals [see photos] there kept us occupied through the end of the day. Dinner was at Missouri Hicks Bar-B-Q. [see photo] The hickory smoked ribs were done Texas style and made a great dinner. Trudy had Ory's spud a stuffed potato that must have weighed in a t more than a pound. It was stuffed with shredded pork, cheese, bacon bits, etc.
