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.

Chris Berton sneaks a bite to eat from the deck of the Loni Jo, a ferry connecting Illinois Route 1 and Kentucky State Highway 91 at the Ohio River near Cave In Rock, Ill. Because of the constant traffic, Berton rarely gets to take an official coffee or lunch break from his job directing cars and trucks onto the ferry deck during his 8-hour shift.
