We made 550 miles today and are west of Chicago tonight. Pennsylvania and Ohio were a nice drive on I-80 with well maintained roads and state-run restaurant and fuel areas. By contrast, Indiana had way too many potholes and bumps. Their infrastructure seems to be crumbling, as witness the transition overpass from I-80/90 West to I-80 West. It was ancient and decrepit to the point of being dangerous. judging from the amount of smashed areas on the concrete block guardrails, lots of accidents have already happened on it.
Having an iPod is great. We’ve been listening to music and podcasts all day, and I just loaded it up with more podcasts for tomorrow.
