Scotty I will be sure to wave as I roll through Shrewsbury.

I just want to be prepared for worst case senario, as they say plan for the worst, hope for the best.

Hwy. 23 would be a lot more scenic, as in small towns. Good road, too.

Kind of the way I am leaning...

Supposed to get rain moving into St Louis Monday, so I may just try to burn the road in one push. I hate racing the weather, I of course will be keeping tabs on radar and what not as I go, provided the cell service is willing to provide. I made hard copies of the route 2x one to take with me and one for the wife to give to the authorities if I don't show up at home...like I said planning for the worst case scenario here.



HPT, shoot me your number, more than welcome to tag along for a bit as this rolls through...or anyone else that wants to get out and lay down a few miles along the way...
