Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

NC Bound Fall 2013-- Part 2: Getting Gassed
I ran into the first of a whole lot of road construction both coming and going starting at Huntley, Illinois, where Il-47 goes over the tollway. Gas was $3.70 in Woodstock and even up to $3.80 at Starks Corner (always one of the more expensive spots. //// Hit that nasty old stoplight where Il-47 passes by Plank Road. I think in all the multitude of times I have been driving on 47, I must have caught that light red every time but twice. AND, it is a L-O-N-G one. //// Gas in Elburn (always very expensive) was $3.78 at the BP and, gulp, $3.90 at the Mobil station near where the original Lincoln Highway crosses Il-47 south of town. --RoadDog
