Chicago - Bowling Green

Wednesday, 6. October 1999
Journey Chicago to Bowling Green

After the breakfast we had to pack one's bag and leave.

A hint for the economical people, the valet parking is not free... The day was $ US 25. Not a big deal, but in return the doormen could us explain the way to the I 90/94.

We made us comfortable for the drive and left the Palmer House Hilton. We caught the ramp to the interstate with just a slight detour. Actually we tried to avoid the driving on interstates because there is a lot of traffic (mostly trucks). Therefore we wanted to reach the Illinois highway number 6. We found it soon, but after one our driving the road ended in a dead end and we were lost.

The search for an alternative route did cost us one hour driving around. Then we left Illinois and entered Indiana. Shortly after the boundary we made a coffee break and did the good deed of the day. We bought a bag peanuts, the profit was for the local church and their shelter for the homeless.

Again we had to look for our way. But then we entered highway number 6 again. It leads - apart of heavy traffic ways with big trucks - trough the country (along large cornfields) across Indiana. After a closer look in the Rand McNally® we decided to drive until Sandusky, the end of highway 6 in Ohio.

But some miles before Bowling Green the shades went longer and we then made our overnight stay at the Best Western in Bowling Green.

In spite of the wunderful weather and the blue skies we didn't made a lot of pictures. We can just present the following photo of rental car from AVIS. It was a Chevrolet Lumina with bronze/silver colors. The picture was made (like the others) with a rather old borrowed Kodak CD 20 (thank's again Henry!).
