One day down, two to go

We just finished up our first day of driving. We ended up taking off at 8am this morning, stopped at JP's for one last cup of coffee and continued on our way. We made it through 3 states and will hopefully make it to salt Lake City tomorrow. On the way through Illinois we ended up driving about 30 minutes with a group of hundreds of bikers. It was their freedom ride 2008 which was supporting the troops and P.O.W. and M.I.A. It was really neat to see all of the support they got throughout the ride, people were on every overpass with flags and signs. From Illinois we headed through Iowa. Iowa was long and mostly corn fields but it was crazy to see how much destruction was everywhere from the floods.  We were lucky enough to be able to cross over the Mississippi and there were multiple sections of I-80 that up to about a week ago had been under water. While in Iowa we got to stop at the worlds largest truck stop. Unfortunately it was just that, a large truck stop. It did have a theater which was neat, but we didn't have enough time to stop and see a movie. I will update with pictures as soon as we get to Utah but for now I am off to get some rest so I will be ready for our long day tomorrow.
