Our first night ended in Clarksville, TN. We woke early that next morning on our way north west. Plan A was to travel through St Lewis on to Kansas City. That quickly changed to Plan B, head north to Chicago then west on I90. All of these plans would have worked had there not been a huge wall of winter weather blocking our entry. Plan C was soon put into action...head right in the middle of Illinois and staircase our way through Iowa and so on. You should be seeing the irony in all this...I know I am ;). We left the road at 5pm local time with visibility at zero. Here we sit amid other stranded travelers in Morton, Illinois waiting patiently for roads to open and plows to clear our way!
