Over the past few summers I have tackled the National Road, the Oregon Trail, and I've motorcycled to the Arctic Circle (Yukon) and Alaska. In the summer of 2013 I tackled Illinois Route 1. Starting on the south side of Chicago, Illinois 1 is the longest state highway, meandering south until it ends in Cave In Rock, Illinois, on the banks of the Ohio River. Once again, I operated with the assistance of Verizon Wireless, using an Apple iPhone and Nokia Lumia 928 to make all photographs.

great day

It is  amazing how beautiful rural Indiana and Illinois are early on a summer morning. I’m back home in Illinois, and have one last section of the road left.  Early next week I will do the last 75 miles.  I will be sorry when it is finished.  There’s a lot to see out there, but you’ve got to go look for it.
