Day 22 Sebree to Harrisburg IL 65 miles

During breakfast,coffee and fig newtons,looked at the weather. Wind out of ESE pretty strong. Then I notice that the west bound notes that are handed out had a shortcut to Carbondale of 100 miles. Basically NWN. Took abount 10 nanoseconds to figure that one out. 56 to Ohio river then 13 into Carbondale. Good quiet roads out of Kentucky. Mostly flat. With strong tailwind :)
Illinois 13 has,in many cases, interstate quaily shoulder.
Compared to the ACA route it is pancake flat and a couple of days shorter. Then toss in a strong tailwind it was a dream ride.
It helped that it was a Sunday, especially Memorial Weekend. Only a few framers in the field.
