It has been 2 long days in the car. We went from Ohio into Indiana and landed in Illinios for the night. A little town called Effingham (ya, really) - the Gateway of Opportunity. This morning we got up and drove through St. Louis and saw the Gateway arch. Had to by a cowboy hat now that we're officially in the west. We're noticing the landscape changing now. It's Brian's birthday tomorrow, we're going to see some friends here in Arkansas and have a day a rest before the last leg of getting to New Mexcio!
