Got up super early and were in the car by 5:30 am and on the road leaving Colorado Springs behind with the destination of Jacksonville, IL. Over 700 miles to drive in one day to put us closer to our destination for the weekend.Green….Green…More Green….How many shades of green can one see in over 700 miles through Colorado, Kansas & Illinois and how many ears of corn are in an average size field?!?! Too many to count!!! If you can’t find me I’m somewhere in the corn field……LoL
When we went through Kansas
we were on the constant lookout for Toto, Dorothy and the Wicked Witch!! Luckily they were NO where to be found so the storms stayed away but somehow we never did find the Yellow Brook Road!Really NOT a whole lot to say about Day 3 as we only stopped for gas and potty breaks as we had a lot of miles to cover to get us closer to our final destination of day 4-7!! The scenery was just lots of green fields, trees and not really anything to brag about. No Mountains, no changing scenery that really even picture worthy unless I had time to stop for pictures of old buildings.
Jacksonville, IL appears to be a bit of a little bit town. For us the cell reception was almost completely obsolete and no data service available until we connected to the hotel. Now onto day 4 with a much more exciting and fun day planned once we arrive!!
If you can….Travel as often as possible, roam our beautiful countryside here in the United States, your homeland or anywhere else you can. Experiencing new things always helps me to appreciate what I already have even more, it helps me to relax a little and gives me time to admire new things and held me to reflect a little on my own life. Find your inner peace…find what truly makes you happy from the inside out….don’t get stuck or stay stuck within your little bubble….GET OUT and do some things for Yourself and experience Life before it’s too late!!! Thanks for reading my thoughts……..Robin Robinson
