Zebulon Montgomery Pike Trail to Red River, Arkansas Journey 1806 — 1807

Day 37: September 20th, 2004 Kansas City — Terre Haute

From my visit last year I still remember roughly, where the Cracker Barrel in southern direction is located. When I arrive there, everything is almost empty. You can tell that today is a working day. A quarter past nine I pay and drive over to the gas station.

Around half past nine I am back on the Interstate. First I take I–35 South to I–435, which is kind of a city bypass. First it runs east and then north before I am back on I–70 East.

The rest of the day I will be on I–70 East. On my way I cross once again the Missouri River.

At St. Louis is the next Missouri River crossing. Then I take I–270, which takes me over the Mississippi River and the state line to Illinois. You can tell that the traffic is now increasing significantly.

Finally I cross the state line to Indiana and arrive at Terre Haute. Around half past four I check in at the local Motel 6. Now I have plenty of time to check the video taping of today.

Around half past seven I drive over to the Outback and have my usual 9 ounce Outback Special — and this time I really receive it and not a Prime Rib like last time here. Around half past eight I pay and drive back to my motel.
