Ate lunch at the Mahomet Hen House. As I already said, I was thinking of ordering a half a chicken, but decided not to when I was told there would be a twenty minute wait. Instead, I had a ham steak with three sides for $7.95. Some of the best ham I've ever eaten. But, next time, maybe in Springfield, I will try some of that chicken they're noted for.
Listened to Bob Seger's "Beautiful Loser" and the Tribute to Jimi Hendrix on the way to Champaign, until Forrest, Illinois, when I started listening to the Whip, WWHP. Listened to that station until I lost reception by Danville on I-74.
Gas was $3.80 at Crawfordsville, Indiana. I should have gotten gas at Mahomet where it was $3.60. Usually, the Pilot station near Crawfordsville is one of the cheapest prices on nthe way.
On I-74 through to the bypass around Indianapolis, arriving in time for rush hour. Decided to go right through town on I-70 and am happy to say that traffic was heavy, but there were no slowdowns.
I-70 into Ohio and had dinner at Skyline Chili north of Dayton. This is getting to be a regular stop for me. Got a room at the Knight's Inn east of Columbus.
Finally Made It Through the First Day. --RoadDog
