Our day started by being awoken by the sprinklers spraying our tent and us ultimately arriving in Champaign, Illinois. Champaign is a college town being home to the University of Illinois.
Thanks to Erik Hasenberg we had the pleasure of going on the radio – WPGU 107.1 to be exact. We ate Gyros, they were good!
We are now in Decatur, Illinois also known as “The Soy City” and well on our way to St. Louis (99.6 miles away approximately). After a night of camping at the local Wal-Mart we were in dire need of a shower.
After going through every hotel in a 10 mile area and every single one being well out of our price range, we finally got an offer by a local to crash at their place.
We are continuing our journey towards St. Louis, Missouri from Champaign, Illinois.
More on the last few days and plenty of pictures later.
