I am traveling by car from Tennessee to South Dakota. I traveled through two states I had never been to before, Indiana and Illinois. Actually stopped for dinner in Illinois so I can say I visited that one. ( I will probably say I visited Indiana too). One thing I did notice today is that even though there was some roadwork being done on our route that the repair work did not really keep up with the repair need. Also as you go further west the distance between towns get farther. From my duh category, the farther north you go the colder it gets.
