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.

In Lawrenceville, Ill.,  just a few feet off Illinois Route 1, we met Bill Cobb who has been selling produce on and off for more than 30 years. Married for 45 years, from the smile on his face, and the joy he had talking to customers, I had concluded that Bill was a guy who had life figured out.
