Thursday, May 27, 2021: We pulled out of Carol's driveway at 6:15 AM, and took this picture one second before Carol popped out of her house to wave goodbye to us.
We got a picture of I-94 and I-90 coming together, because both had been such good companions to us on this trip.
There's Castle Rock near Camp Douglas, as always.
There was some ugly weather coming our way from the west, but we managed to avoid it completely.
Welcome to Illinois!
Maersk!
This was the second reddish-brown MSC container we had seen on this trip. Is this the color of the future? Has MSC finally given up on its signature mustard yellow?
It was a day late, but we ordered the brand new BTS meal from McDonald's for lunch.
It consisted of 10 Spicy Chicken McNuggets, plus two new flavors of dipping sauces. We got two of each somehow.
The flavors are Cajun and Sweet Chili, and Tom enjoyed them both. (Debbie, of course, stuck with her usual burger order.) Note the Korean writing on the labels. This meal was developed in conjunction with BTS, the Korean boy band. We aren't necessarily big fans but we do love trying new things. Note that we ordered this meal several other times over the next month and never once received spicy McNuggets again, only the regular kind.
Welcome to Indiana!
For the final leg of our journey, we had a bag of Aunt Mary bars, which Tom calls driving bars. Emmie made them and sent them along with Mark, and Carol sent a few home with us.
We rolled into our driveway at 4:15 PM after 6,617 miles of driving, ...
... and eight more states added to The Ocho's travel map. Total state count for The Ocho: 28.

** THE END **
