I'm 580 miles into the trip and I just crossed into Indiana. I'm passing through Richmond, which, apparently, is quite the town. The Wright Brothers were from Richmond, as was a Nobel Prize winner and the singer Baby Huey (yes, THAT Baby Huey). There's actually quite a list of famous Richmondites (or is it Richmonders?).
Anyway, I'm continuing on Rt. 70 on my way towards Indianapolis. At that point, I'll start to head southwest on my trek towards LA.
