Day 28: iStates

630 miles
10 hours driving
15.3mpg
$20 (w/electric) Kickapoo State Park, Illinois

Not a lot of photos today. Knocked out two “iStates”: Iowa and all but 10 miles of Illinois.

The western setting sun shrank and mocked me in my rear view mirror.

I had hoped to get into Indiana, but the sun set as I was trying. Just before the border on I-74 is Kickapoo State Park (it was teased a lot as a child).

Driving into an unfamiliar park after dark is always unnerving. Will there be a spot open on a summer weekend? Hard-to-read site markers, backing into a spot in the dark… Wonder what this park looks like in the daylight.

Good night.

  1. Goodnight! ๐Ÿ™‚ I look forward to your photos of the site in the morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am enjoying your travels vicariously! These lovely photos and descriptions of gorgeous parks and campgrounds are really making me think that buying a trailer is a brilliant way to explore the countryside. And after the initial investment, it seems very affordable. Keep the photos and blog posts coming! ๐Ÿ™‚
