HOME O'CLOCK

We managed to drag an additional day and a half out of the road home hopping off the 66 to hit the icey streets of That Shithole St. Louis™. Matt made us cookies and a welcome sign. We got high on Indian food and bitched about the snow as if we were not OG midwest; it was shameful. We hatched plans to just keep driving but I've used up most of my cat-sitting favors, and well, Bloomington Indiana can wait.
This morning the ice had melted and we felt brave, so it was time to head home. The 300 miles home was my favorite stint of the trip, and not just because we stopped in Joliet and bought a shit ton of spray paint.
