Well, another week has gone by and I'm updating my progress along Rt. 66. There's no doubt that I am well out of Chicago and making my south. When I pull up pictures from Google that are on my path you can tell the farmland is really kicking in. Lots of fields running along side of I-55. Rt. 66 tends to follow along the interstate pretty well although most of this weeks journey has been on the frontage road. I'm not quite to Odell, Il, maybe a mile or two out of town. The picture is an old Standard gas station in Odell from the 1930's. It's nice that it has been restored and is now a historic site. I expect to see a lot of old gas stations along the way, but most will be abandoned and falling apart.
