Took my usual route to North Carolina, starting with Illinois Highway 47 in Woodstock and taking it all the way to near its southern terminus in Mahomet, Illinois. I was surprised to make it through Huntley's Main Street Strangler, that horrible wait forever stoplight.
But, more than made up for that at a huge traffic jam and long wait south of Huntley at the 47-72 intersection south of Stark's Corner.
I was shocked to see gas at the Elburn BP station, usually the most expensive along Il-47, at $1,87. Then, I had a long wait for a freight train in downtown Elburn, something that happens often. Those trains that go through DeKalb, also go through here.
I am glad to report that the road construction headache through Yorkville is now completed and it's a fine and easy drive through there now.
Happy Fiftieth Anniversary Liz
