|John and Pat -- on our spring road trip from Iowa to Connecticut|
For the last decade -- every Rest Area I've visited -- in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, S.Dakota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, -- well -- MANY STATES -- has been clean as a whistle (whatever that means).
|This particular rest area was in Illinois...(I think)|
|Of course, the MOST IMPORTANT THING is the immaculate rest rooms...|
|I am always pleasantly surprised when the outside areas are planted with well tended flower beds...|
|I pull off to take a nap, or have a bite to eat at a picnic table under a shady tree...|
|Who am I kidding? The whole point of a road trip is EATING IN MY CAR...|
