US Hwy 50 day four

Today's trip brought us back to the Martin Manor RV park where we will rest up for a couple of weeks, restock the pantry and closets.  On June 8 we will resume the Hwy 50 trek and head west which will take us 6 more days to reach the Pacific Ocean.  This is day 4 and at the end of day 10 we will be taking pictures of the Pacific.  Hwy 50 stops somewhere around Sacramento but we will continue to the waters edge.

This project has been quite interesting as except for the route through Missouri we are totally unfamiliar of this route and never know what to expect around the next curve or over the next hill.  Today through the Illinois farming communities we encountered several farm implements on the roadway traveling at 15-20 mph and long stretches of no-passing zones.

Going through St. Louis was interesting and not where I thought Rte 50 would be marked.  I had to turn off Ms Navi and follow MoDOT signing.  It was a bit confusing for awhile but then it all came together and we were on our way.

We have now completed 1112 miles of the total 3131 miles.

This is our day four route 285 miles

and this is the combined days 1-4
