Getting home took a little Sixty-Six, some Old National Road/US-40, and quite a bit of I-70.

Next came Easter with plans for a solo cruise. When I was somewhat planning on joining the "Sweetheart Cruise" I had thought it a comfortable jaunt for a three day weekend. With plans less wishy-washy, it seemed doable in three days but hardly comfortable. But snow again caused a cancellation. In April! It wasn't deep snow but it was real and the snow was naturally accompanied by some rather cold temperatures. When you're driving across two states just to reach the start point, even a little snow and barely freezing temperature can be off putting.
So now I'm going to try again with the three day Memorial Day weekend plus a day's vacation for good measure. Aside from the fact that it seems to be taunting me, I'm attracted to the road because it was a key piece in the National Old Trails Road and it carries a lot of history. I plan on going just a bit beyond the road to check out the Madonna of the Trail in Lexington and I'll probably also make a side trip to Daniel Boone's home and grave. Assuming that it doesn't snow, of course.
