Day 36 - Saturday, Oct 3 - Springfield, IL to Akron, OH

Starting mileage:  9511 Starting time: 8:00 am

Ending mileage: 10020 Ending time: 5:30 pm
Travel mileage:  509 Travel time: 9:30 hours

This was a solid travel day. It was chilly all day with the temperature only going between 48 and 51 and raining for about 4 hours this afternoon. The Akron weather said that this was the second coldest Oct 3 in history - what a change from 108 degree temperatures on Monday!

There were several wind farms that we passed in Illinois. At one of the rest areas there were tractor trailers carrying the wind turbine blades - it was quite impressive to stand next to them.

Tonight we are using up the last of our "points" for a free stay at the Holiday Inn Express.

Home tomorrow!
