This morning, I decided to go for a walk and stretch my legs a little bit, and guess what I discovered right across the street (it was too dark to see it when we arrived last night)?

I was totally flummoxed on arrival last night to see this business in Indianapolis:
|Grand Traverse Pie Company|
The remainder of today (after the Goodwill excursion and having a flat tire repaired at the terminal) was spent driving to our destination in Granite City, IL, which is about as far west as you can go on I70 without driving into the Mississippi River (or crossing the bridge to St. Louis, MO). The scenery in Indiana & Illinois along I70 isn't particularly awe inspiring, so I had to resort to oohing and aahing over the foliage.

Oh, I almost forgot. While in the Indianapolis terminal, I spent some time in the Driver's Lounge. Sometimes truckers can be...well, let's just say interesting people. I think a lot of them are alone too much, so their social skills get rusty. There were two guys in there, watching NYPD Blue on the TV and having a conversation. They were clearly in competition for the "I know more than you do and also my medical condition(s) are way more serious than yours" award. One of these guys had an IPad, which he was pretty proud of, and I heard him say to the other guy "when I get home, I'm cancelling my Facebook account, because Facebook is so boring. Everyone I know that has anything worth saying is on Twitter."
I couldn't find any really silly sounding place names today so you'll have to settle for:
